Hi,

It has been a while since I've had to do anything substantial with
Exchange (part of SBS 2003).  The databases are in desperate need of
defragmentation.  I think I know what  to do, but hopefully another
set of eyes and another brain will see/think of things I don't.  I
want to defragment the current database and I need to use a temporary
file because of lack of space on the drive where the database is
located.  Are the following commands correct?

1.  stop Exchange servicdes

2.  eseutil  /d  /t i:\temp  priv1db

3.  start exchange services

i:\temp is a temporary directory I have setup for this.

Thanks
