copying the priv.edb and pub.edb files

copying the priv.edb and pub.edb files

Post by Michael Ke » Thu, 08 Jan 2004 06:06:05


I need to copy the priv.edb and pub.edb files to another server to do an
offline defragment of the database to try and fix some corruption. I have
stopped the information store (also stopped all the services) and tried to
copy the file. It tells me access denied, the file may be in use.

I also tried rebooting the serve with the services set to manual. This did
not work.

Thanks for any help.

I set all exchange services to manual, rebooted the serve, and still could
not copy the file to a different server.

Go into the Exchange System Manager, expand the menus down to the
Information Store itself, right-click, and dismount the Information Store.
You have to do this before performing integrity checks or defragmentation
and the like. When you finish whatever you have to do, just right-click and
re-mount the information store.

Another note: you want to have all your Exchange services running when you
do this. When you dismount the information store, it will no longer be
locked. I had to repair and defragment an information store yesterday,
following the first section (steps 1-8) of KB article at
http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ;en-us;810197.
