Hi all, Has anyone seen this before.... I have been getting problems on our Exchange2K server - Information Store was appearing to stop periodically and Priv1.edb and pub1.edb were up to 14GB. That along with 800 unflushed Logs led me to believe the best course of action was to defrag the .EDB files. I had to manually delete the Logs as was almost out of space - ran the ESEUTIL /D and compressed the files to 3GB & 1GB. However, when I tried to run a backup, the Information Store Service stopped again. Having investigated - what is happening is: When BackupExec reaches the point of backing up The First Storage Group - the Information Store service stops - this then stops it flushing the logs even if I restart the service, Backup Exec bypasses this part of the backup and continues with the rest of the server backup. So eventually the IS exceeds 16GB and the service stops anyway (I think this is what's happening) Has anyone seen this before? What is causing it? How do I fix it? All help appreciated.
