Hi,

We have exchange 2003 server. database limit it reaching 75GB, Now we have archive the emails,

Now we need to defrag the Exchange 2003 Database and should use the Temp location for the Defrag because current Database partition is not enough.

Please let me know which command should i use ?  i need to defrag EDB and STM  both.

How to defragment Exchange databases
https://support2.microsoft.com/kb/328804/en-us

have you looked at the white space?
look in the application log for event id 1221 to see the white space of each database
you need to allow the system to go through online defrag first before offline defrag becomes any benefit
that should be the first step

I ran the defrag. Now I can see below event ID in event. does this mean now DB size is 70Gb and free 5GB ?

Event Type:        Information
Event Source:    MSExchangeIS Mailbox Store
Event Category:                General
Event ID:              1216
Date:                     13/12/2014
Time:                     3:49:52 AM
User:                     N/A
Computer:          Server01
Description:
The Exchange store 'First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (SErver01)' is limited to 75 GB. The current physical size of this database (the .edb file and the .stm file) is 70 GB. If the physical size of this database minus its logical free space exceeds the limit of 75 GB, the database will be dismounted on a regular basis.
