I have a server running Exchange 5.5 SP4, which has recently started
hitting the 16Gb limit for exchange standard.
My query is this - If I export the Mailbox Resourses list, and add the
Total K column up, it only comes to 5.5gb - where has the extra 10Gb
I've tried offline defrags, they dont reduce the size very much.
isinteg -test alltests shows 0 errors
eseutil /g shows database consitent
Deleted Item retention is set to 0 days, and the ticky box for dont
delete till backup is unticked.
We are running Backup Exec doing a brick backup of both the whole
information store and the individual mailboxes - this completes
without errors. 10 days ago this was backing up the first 35 mailboxes
totalling 12Gb!, and giving errors saying unable to access the
remaining ones. This has now stopped and its backing up all 137
mailboxes (though nothing has changed permissions wise)
In the last week, the database size shot up by 2gb for no apparent
reason - the previous week it only grew by 30mb.
I think i've detailed all relevant info - if I've missed anything i'd
appreciate knowing! Its doing my head in.
