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.

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

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?
