    Environment:
    Exchange 2003 Enterprise running on Windows 2003 Standard

    Every few months, the mailbox stores on our Exchange server dismount, with a corresponding Event ID 1159 in the event viewer.

    According to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/905801

    This issue occurs if the storage group that is related to the information store contains more than 1008 uncommitted Extensible Storage Engine (ESE) transaction log files. Each ESE storage group has a hard-coded limit of 1024 uncommitted ESE transaction log files. When the number of uncommitted ESE transaction log files in an ESE storage group reaches 1008, Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server starts to dismount all the information stores in the storage group. Additionally, the event ID 1159 message is logged in the Application log.

    Fixing the problem is easy — simply go into Exchange System Manager and re-mount the stores.

    However, I’d like to be a little more pro-active about dealing with this issue.

    Is there any way to monitor the number of uncommitted Extensible Storage Engine (ESE) transaction log files in real time?

    Thanks.
