Exchange Archive Drive is Full RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Exchange Archive Database drive d filled up over night and by Database was dismounted. The Database on the log files are on the same drive. I tried moving the log file to the C:/  but it did not free up much space

    when i run and eseutil /mh on the database files it said dirty shutdown. The eseutil /mh logs files are okay.

    When i try the eseutil /r for log file there is no space left on disk

    I was trying to avoid doing the eseutil /p

    How can i get around this. I need my archive database up and running.

    Get-Mailbox -Organization xxx  | Search-mailbox -SearchDumpsterOnly -DeleteContent

  • Move the logs you dont need manually, free up some space and see if you can then mount the store:

    How to remove Exchange Server transaction log files

    Do not delete the logs, move them to another directory. Also do you have a recent full backup?

  • I tried movnig the logs before this did not work. The database did not mount. I was able to move the database and the log files to an non exchange server and ran eseutil to bring it to a clean state and defrag but this did not reduce the size.  I need a way of mounting it remotely to clean up some space and defrag again.This is exchange 2010 sp1. Is this possible

  • IF not can i install exchange on the other server, mount the database create some new mailbox space. Defrag again then move the db back to the old server. How can i achieve this.

    Else can i move the catalog files to another drive on the server just to mount the database
