        Re: Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 SP2 Community Technology Preview

        Hello All,

        I was wondering has anyone played with the size limitations in exchange SP2. I am testing this pack and i would like to edit the disk size limitations. Apparently microsoft says it defaults to 18Gb, but if you edit the string you can change that to 75Gb. Can anyone tell me where to find this in the registry?

        Thank you

          Configure Database Size Limits
          By default, the size limit of each database on a server running Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition is 16 GB. After installing Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2), the default size limit for each Exchange database is 18 GB. Additionally, you can configure database size limits of up to 75 GB per database on servers running Exchange Server 2003 SP2.

          By default, the size limit of each database on a server running Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise Edition is 8,000 GB. This size is generally a theoretical limit. The actual limit of an Exchange database is limited based on your server hardware and on the hardware of your storage sub-system. After Exchange Server 2003 SP2 is installed, you can customize the database size limit to a value up to 8,000 GB.

          The Application log on an Exchange server will log warning and critical events as you approach or reach the database limit you have configured. The following procedure shows you how to customize the settings related to database size limits to meet the needs of your organization.


          Important This article contains information about editing the registry. Before you edit the registry, make sure you understand how to restore the registry if a problem occurs. For information about how to restore the registry, view the "Restore the Registry" Help topic in Regedit.exe or Regedt32.exe.

          To configure the database size limit for a database:

          On the computer running Exchange Server, start Regedit.exe.
          Open one of the following registry keys:

          To configure the database size limit on a mailbox store, open the following registry key:

          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\MSExchangeIS\Server name\Private-Mailbox Store GUID

          To configure the database size limit on a public store, open the following registry key:

          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\MSExchangeIS\Server name\Public-Public Store GUID

          Right-click Public (or Private) Store GUID, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
          For the new value name, type Database Size Limit in Gb.
          Double-click Database Size Limit in Gb. In Value data, type an appropriate value for maximum database size in GB. For Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition, type a value between 1 and 75 (the default is 18 GB). For Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise Edition, type a value between 1 and 8000 (the default is 8000 GB). Click OK.
          Right-click Public (or Private) Store GUID, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
          For the new value name, type Database Size Buffer in Percentage.
          Double-click Database Size Buffer in Percentage. In Value data, type a value between 1 and 100 to specify when you want events to be logged to warn you that you are nearing the maximum size for a database. The default value of 10 will result in warning events to be logged when you have 10 percent capacity left before you reach the maximum size for that database. Click OK.
          Right-click Public (or Private) Store GUID, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
          For the new name, type Database Size Check Start Time in Hours From Midnight.
          Double-click Database Size Check Start Time in Hours From Midnight. In Value data, type a value between 0 and 23 to specify when you want Exchange to check the database size. The default value of 5 results in Exchange Server checking the database size 5 hours after midnight (5:00 AM). Click OK.
          Close Registry Editor.
          Before you edit the registry, and for information about how to edit the registry, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 256986, "Description of the Microsoft Windows registry."

            Hello Daniel,

            Thank you for that. It worked like a charm.

            Now I need to test the the Mobile Functions with my XDA. Hopefully this Push technology is as good as they claim it to be.

            Regards
