Virtual Center Server Service Stops -SQL database reached its limit.

Last Modified: 2016-03-05

I’m struggling to reduce the size of my Vcenter 5.0.0,455964  database and because of its size limit of 10GB (express version) the vCenter service stops. I’ve run the below following both articles to letter and it seems to work for a day or two and then it stops again. How can i reduce the size of Vcenter currently stands at 10,485,184.

We have 3 hosts attached to SAN and about 30 VM - surely this can’t be right to be this big in size?
