To defragment an Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003 database, follow these steps:

  1. In Exchange System Manager, right-click the information store that you want to defragment, and then click Dismount Store.
  2. At a command prompt, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each command:

cd Exchsrvr\Bin

eseutil /d

  1. Include a database switch, and any options that you want to use.

For example, the following command runs the standard defragmentation utility on a mailbox store database:

C:\program files\exchsrvr\bin>eseutil /d c:\progra~1\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb
