Hi Knowledge Exchange,
I have an Exchange 2003 sp2 server (version 6.5 build 7638.2) on Windows Server 2003 sp2 with about 100 users. Very recently it started to Unmount the Information Store at odd times with event id 1216, and the message:
"The Exchange store 'First Storage GroupPublic Information Store (mailsrvr)' is limited to 36 GB. The current physical size of this database (the .edb file and the .stm file) is <1 GB. If the physical size of this database minus its logical free space exceeds the limit of 36 GB, the database will be dismounted on a regular basis."
Using the information from the article : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998066(EXCHG.65).aspx
I increased the database size limit to 50gb, however, the same thing occurred with the same errors. This continued for several hours until I increased the database limit to 75gb and finally it stopped.
This cant be a good solution as we will certainly hit the 75gb mark in the future.
What is the correct solution to this problem?
Thanks in advance, Rhrivera
