Hello,

We currently have CCR implemented in our environment and were also using SCOM.

We recently received the following SCOM alert for our CCR setup.

Error: ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Alert: Logical Disk Fragmentation Level is high

Source: M:  

Alert description: The disk M: (M:) on computer albexmbx5.exec.chamber.state.ny.us has high fragmentation level. File Percent Fragmentation value is 91%. Defragmentation recommended: true.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The M drive is where our databases are stored and we currently have Online Database Maintenance enabled to run every night. I thought is was strange that we received this error. I hesitant to dismount the databases and run esutil. Shouldn't the On-line DB Maintenance take care of this?

Thank you

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There is a difference between database fragmentation and disk fragmentation. It looks like this error involves the disk, not the database. And yes online DB maintenance will help with the database fragmentation, but also keep in mind that maintenance still does not remove white space. It never has. If large numbers of mailboxes get moved you will still need to do an eseutil defrag.

I think in your case a DISK defrag is in order, not a DATABASE defrag.
