thanks Tony,
 
I did review event ID 1221, and no I would not regain much more than a few
hundred meg.  Thanks.

Christine,

   The question is do you really have to perform the offline defrag? You
really don't have to do that. The system will reuse the white space that you
think you have lost when the system needs it. Always look for the Event ID
1221 in your event viewer and it will tell you how much space you have left
on each storage space after the daily online defragmentation has terminated.

Interesting idea.  Did you use exmerge or just migrate them with the GUI?

If you are doing offline defrag to recover the white space, then i suggest
moving the mailboxes to a new store and delete and re-create the old one.
This is lot simpler than offline defrag. This will have down time of average
10 Min per mailbox.

 

recently I tried to do off line defrag and it terminated after reaching 90%,
i wasted nearly 2 hours, then i had to move the mailboxes to a new store,
luckily i had a free store.

Praveen R

Yes, you can dismount individual mailbox stores without effecting the
others.

Hello, 

Running exchange 2003 and windows 2003.  I need to perform off-line defrags
of 4 separate storage groups.  If you dismount one, do you have to dismount
all of them?  Meaning can I be running the defrag on one storage group and
give folks access to the store group that is not having the ESEutil run
against it?
