No, you'll just need space, once the database is offline the eseutil
doesn't care about the exchange services, it's simply a database file at
that point.  This is also a good idea for recovery reasons, you'll be
dealing with a copy of your databases instead of the originals.=20

server and run it?  would ihave to build up another exchange server and
then move the database there or just another windows server?

Michael,

You wont see any new space when a user deletes items from their mailbox
until you run an offline defrag.  All the ESE engine will do is mark the
pages within the db as blank space.  In order to recover that blank
space, and offline defrag would need to be performed using the ESEUTIL
utility.

If you don't have enough space on the server, you can copy ESEUTIL.EXE
and ESE.DLL to a seperate server along with the DB in question to
perform the offline defrag.  Now, I don't know how large the DB is and
what kind of network connectivity, so you might want to get an offline
backup of the IS and restore it to another location.  That might
decrease the copy time.

You won't get the space back until an off-line defrag is done on your
databases.  Look over the doco for Exutil and if you do an offline
defrag insure you have atleast as much free diskspace as your databases
are taking up or bad things happen.

I have an exchange server that is running low on disk space. I have
cleaned up old files, etc. and had users delete unwanted stuff and sent
and deleted messages, but it doesn't help.  how can i manually reclaim
that space to try and salvage this server?=3D20

Thanks,
