Exchange Server 2007 SP3 CCR transaction log growing to 60 GB+

hi People,

I'm having a problem with my Exchange Server 2007 SP3 (CCR configured) transaction log growth. it is growing to become more than 60 GB+ while I have checked that backup and CCR replication is all in good normal condition.

Can anyone please assist me with what is the best way to diagnose and troubleshoot this issue ?

Thanks

So in the interim, without causing any downtime to the production server, Cain just turn on circular logging to prevent log build up ?

Hi,

You can configure Exchange to save disk space by enabling circular logging. Circular logging allows Exchange to overwrite transaction log files after the data that the log files contain is committed to the database. However, if circular logging is enabled, you can recover data only up until the last full backup. For example, you can enable circular logging when using Exchange native data protection, in which you don't make backups. To prevent log buildup, you need to enable circular logging.

Or you may Follow the Steps below,

Open Microsoft Management Console, Under Organization Configuration click on Mailbox then clickclick on Database Management where you find Databases, take properties by right click
and under meiantenance tab apply check of Enable circular logging.

It will clear the transaction log.

Please read what's happend if you enable circular logging.
