Exchange 2010 Message Journaling and transaction logs.
Posted on 2013-09-05
I have an Exchange 2010 SP3 running on a single Windows 2008 R2 server. I have recently implemented a third part journaling solution that had me create a journaling mailbox that receives all the messages and then moves them to the Journaling storage area. I would like to prevent these messages that are sent to this mailbox from being logged to my transaction log file.
My thinking is that since it is a separate platform where the messages are stored that I don't need tran logs for it for two reasons.
1- It uses a fair amount of space in the tran logs that I don't think is necessary.
2- In the event of a transaction log restore(hopefully never) I would end up with duplicate messages in my journal.
Disabling transaction logs for this mailbox seem to be the best way to do this. Is this possible?
