We have just been through a disaster where we used the ESEutil /P utility. It 
is important that you also ISINteg the DB afterwards.

Subject: [exchangelist] ESEUTIL /P

Hi everyone!

I have an Exchange 2000 box, latest service packs on Win2k with latest service 
packs.  I want to defrag our Exchange Databases using the ESEUTIL /D, as it 
says it only has 9 megs of free space in the Event viewer after running it's 
nightly defrag, but if I have to repair the database, I just found this on MS 
support site and was wondering if anyone with a similar environment as I have 
had any problems using the ESEUTIL /P.

When you run the eseutil /p command to repair an Exchange 2000 database that is 
corrupted, the Eseutil utility causes an access violation error and cannot 
complete the database repair. 
To resolve this issue, Microsoft recommends that you use the Microsoft Exchange 
Server 2003 version of the Eseutil utility (Eseutil.exe) and the Exchange 2003 
version of the Ese.dll file to repair the corrupted database.

Contact Microsoft Product Support Services to obtain the Microsoft Exchange 
Server 2003 version of the Eseutil.exe and the Ese.dll files. For a complete 
list of Microsoft Product Support Services phone numbers and information about 
support costs, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Also, I don't have enough disk space to defrag the EDB's.  I've read I can copy 
the EDB's to a drive that has efficient disk space, but once I do the defrag on 
the EDB that I copied to the other drive with efficient space, do I have to 
remove the EDB from the drive that didn't have efficient space before moving 
the defragmented EDB?

Just really nervous doing this, so bare with me if I sound like an amateur as 
I've never done this on a Exchange box.
