Exchange 2007 server disk space low. incoming messages stops
Posted on 2014-01-23
Hi All, we are running exchange 2007 with sp1 in a server 2008r2.
the total disk space in this server 149GB where the .edb is 108GB plus OS which is about 30 to 40GB.
We basically are out of space. having only 4GB left free disk space. our issue is the incoming email stops. We have put a 500GB HD in this server and made a 2nd database but after moving some mailbox to it the other database still retains its size. We are kind of wondering how to get past this issue or temporarily get the email coming in.
we are deploying a new exchange server on site but also afraid that we will not be able to do migration since the server in question has no disk space to take some things needed for migration like filter packs.
can some body guide me to at least how to free up enough space in this server?
we appreciate the help. thanks
