Exchange Database Maintenance

This news item expired September 17, 2010. It may contain out-of-date information.
ITS Exchange administrators will perform maintenance on some of our Exchange mailbox databases on the nights of September 13-16 between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

We currently have 63 Exchange databases with more than 9800 accounts and 7.7 terabytes of data. The goal of this maintenance is to keep the amount of data stored on each server balanced so that Exchange can continue to run efficiently.

This information is for notification only and is not to be confused with recent phishing emails asking users to submit usernames and passwords. We will never ask you for usernames, passwords, or other personal information by email.

The Computer Consultants and Support Group (CCSG) and the affected users will receive emails with more specific details about this maintenance. If you have more questions about the scheduled Exchange maintenance, contact your local network administrator or the Solution Center at or 515-294-4000.
