Mailbox store online maintenance schedules overlap

[This topic is intended to address a specific issue called out by the Exchange Server Analyzer Tool. You should apply it only to systems that have had the Exchange Server Analyzer Tool run against them and are experiencing that specific issue. The Exchange Server Analyzer Tool, available as a free download, remotely collects configuration data from each server in the topology and automatically analyzes the data. The resulting report details important configuration issues, potential problems, and nondefault product settings. By following these recommendations, you can achieve better performance, scalability, reliability, and uptime. For more information about the tool or to download the latest versions, see "Microsoft Exchange Analyzers" at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=34707.]

The Microsoft® Exchange Server Analyzer Tool queries the Active Directory® directory service to determine whether all the mailbox stores in the storage group have the same maintenance schedule. If the storage group container (class msExchStorageGroup) has two or more mailbox store objects (class msExchPrivMDB), the Exchange Server Analyzer checks the activationSchedule attribute of each mailbox store object. If the Exchange Server Analyzer finds that these values (stored as octet strings) are the same for each mailbox store, or that they overlap, a warning is displayed.

By default, the mailbox store maintenance processes run nightly from 1:00 A.M. to 5:00 A.M. Because of the server resources required for the maintenance processes, it is recommended that you modify the maintenance schedules so that the mailbox stores have schedules that differ by at least 15 minutes.

  1. Open Exchange System Manager.

  2. Expand Servers, and then expand the server that you want to work with.

  3. Expand the storage group that you want to work with.

  4. Right-click the store that you want to work with, and then click Properties.

  5. On the Database tab, click Maintenance interval and click a new interval, or click Customize to create a custom schedule.

  1. Open Exchange Management Console

  2. Expand Server Configuration and then select the server that you want to work with.

  3. Expand the storage group that you want to work with.

  4. Right-click the store that you want to work with, and then click Properties.

  5. On the General tab, click the Maintenance schedule drop down and select a new interval, or click Customize to create a custom schedule.
