We have an old Exchange 2003 server with 20 users. It is running out of disk space like down to nothing. Someone in past moved a lot of files some of which broke System Manager. We are working to setup new Exchange 2013 server and new Windows 2012 Domain controller to create entirely new network. Have not done this so running into some questions and lack of knowledge.
In the short run, this week, to make more space on old server, can we move various update cabinet files to another drive without screwing up the Exchange server and email?
I also know if we run eseutil on the old priv1 databases we can get some space but we have to move the two files to an external drive and run from the server on it and then move them back. It seems to stop after 10% with out of space message. I thought that since we were running the eseutil on the files on another drive we should not have this issue. I know if will be slow but should work. Think we don't have the correct switches in the eseutil command line to make it do it on external drive that is connected.
The priv1.edb is about 14GB and the priv1.stm is about 13.5GB the .stm file has been growing lately after being fairly stable for some time not sure what is causing it.
Any suggestions on where to get help with new server setup for holes in our knowledge. Paying for help not an issue.
Lot of stuff here I know
