I want to schecule by a script my off-line defrag for my Exchange 2000
Enterprise edt SP2 cluster.
If you have documentations and links about this, I appreciate thanks.
ESE util make a temporary file of the database to defrag it after and
replace the original!! Or any other system can do that?
I have a priv1.mdb 23Gb with a priv1.stm 6Gb and my free space on my
partition is 500Mb.
To execute my local off-line defrag it's dead ?? But via the lan ??
A local off-line defrag take 4gb per hour approx = 7 hours in my case...
A lan off-line defrag take 2gb per hour = 15 hours approx....
I have a gigabit lan but what is the risk of this manipulation if my lan
shutdown processing this defrag ??
Someone can help me with a good secure procedure to do this.
