Urgent help: log issue

Hi all,

windows 2003/exchange 2003 Sp2

Due to log space that is almost full, I use the eseutil /mk to check the 
checkpoint and moved some log files that are safe to move.  Now, the log 
files are not trucated when we do a full backup. 

How should I fix this problem?

Thank you.

Restore the missing log files you moved to their original location.

Are you saying all works fine but you can no longer flush the logs after 
successful backup? Just enable Circular login to free up space , get rid of 
from all logs, Stop Circular logging and do full backup. If your backup 
program is not flushing the logs try NTbackup to see what happens?

thanks for your help.

Yes. all fine except logs are not trucated.  I already moved all old logs 
that I moved before to the log folder.  Still, no luck.
BTW, If I enalbe circular logging, I need to restart information store 
service.  How long will it take to flush the old logs?  We do a full bacup 
everyday and probably we need a circular logging enabled, right?

Thank you.

Well, you could use "eseutil /mh" and see what log files the database
thinks it needs.

Or you could enable circular logging and then reboot the server (or
dismount the databases in the storage group, stop and start the IS
service, and then remount the databases). Once things are working,
disable circular logging and repeat. Then make a backup of the storage
group right away.

There's no "flushing" to do. The information in the log files is, if
the database is in a consistent state when you dismount it, already
written to the database.

>We do a full bacup 
>everyday and probably we need a circular logging enabled, right?

No, you don't want to leave circular logging enabled.
