We recently hit the 16GB limit on the IS, so upgraded to
the Enterprise version. The upgrade was confirmed by
seeing event 1217 when Exchange was started.
All was OK until I tried to delete a large folder from a
particularly large mailbox. The process stopped partway
through, and I found that the IS service had stopped with
the "Database full" event.
Stopping and restarting all Exchange services cuased the
IS to stay up for just 2 minutes.
Event log shows that the systen seems to have flipped back
to Standard mode, as event 1216 is now being generated on
I am convinced that this is all due to this mailbox, as it
happened exactly at the point when the mailbox's folder
was deleted (or attempted).
We also run NAI Groupshield & Netshield. OS is WinNT4.0
Has anyone else seen this happen? How can we get it back
to Enterprise version?
