Exchange 2016 and Reducing Disk Usage on the Server’s Boot Drive

Microsoft Exchange 2016 Logo

Every new version of Exchange Server seems to need more space on a server’s boot drive. Given that, you may be faced with building an Exchange Server and wish you had made the boot partition larger. Once it’s done, though, you can’t always take it back and reconfigure everything. Here, I have some strategies for redirecting drive use from an Exchange Server installed on C: to another, larger data drive.

Note: This article is focused on Exchange Server 2016 on-premise. Newer and older versions of Exchange may act differently.

Automating Log Analysis With LogParser, Log Parser Lizard And SendEmail

It has to be the most annoying and difficult task any  admin (or otherwise) needs to perform. The task of viewing and gleaning information from log files. I’ll look at the two more common types of log files that Windows users often have to look into: IIS and Event Viewer logs. How to get the data you need out of them, and how to analyze the information in them with tools that are freely available. Once you have the data, how to get it out (via email). You may choose to use commercial utilities such as Sawmill – but you might be surprised at how much can be done for free!

There are no more results.
