What are the best care and feeding utils

By mdoyle ·
I work at a small dot com and handle the LAN. I was on the phone
with Arcserve trying to troubleshouot a doc Watson error that occurs
only with my brick level backups (error 87 could not attach to the
app) and only when scheduled (they run fine manually). I test the
restores and they work.

Anyway, the tech tells me to run a utility on my mailboxes to make
sure they aren't corrupt. I don't know of any such utility...so my
question is . . .

What preventative maitenance utilities do you use?
What daily/weekly procedures do you do?
Does anyone know of a utility to check for mailbox corruption?

What are the best care and feeding utils

Maintenance of Exchange EDB's should only be done on an as needed basis, be VERY careful with these they can be extreamly usefull but make sure you understand what is going on...


DESCRIPTION: Verifies integrity of a database.
SYNTAX: ESEUTIL /g <database name> [options]
PARAMETERS: <database name> - filename of database to verify, or one of
/ispriv, /ispub, or /ds (see NOTES below)
OPTIONS: zero or more of the following switches, separated by a space:
/t<db> - set temp. database name (default: INTEG.EDB)
/v - verbose
/x - give detailed error messages
/o - suppress logo
NOTES: 1) The consistency checker performs no recovery and always
assumes that the database is in a consistent state,
returning an error if this is not the case.
2) The special switches /ispriv, /ispub, and /ds use the registry to automatically set the database name for the
appropriate Exchange store.


For full details see MS KB article Q182903
Good luck, this is just the checking part of the program, there are many more switches.
