    Pergunta


  • Dear All

    When I give the command

    Get-MailboxDatabase -status | ft Name,Databasesize,AvailableNewMailboxSpace  I am getting the following output which is totally wrong in our exchange environment

    Why this?

    Is it bug?

  • Hi Ashraf

    The available space in the database has been created by moving/deleting  mailboxes out of those databases or users deleting emails they have received.  This number indicates the amount of data that can be written to the database before the size of the EDB file on disk starts to increase.

    Cheers, Steve

  • Hi Ashraf,

    As our friend Steve said they are the whitespace which created by deleting/moving mailboxes in that particular database.

    They are not your physical disk free space.  This is also applicable for DAG environment.

  • you mean free space of physical disk? if so please have a look on disk management (diskmgmt.msc).
