Changing Store Limits in Exchange 2003 SP2
1. On the computer running Exchange Server, start Regedit.exe.
2. Open one of the following registry keys:
To configure the database size limit on a mailbox store, use the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\Server name\Private-Mailbox Store GUID

To configure the database size limit on a public store, use the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\Server name\Public-Public Store GUID

  1. Create a new DWORD entry called "Database Size Limit in Gb" and give it the appropriate value for maximum database size in GB.

For Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition type a value between 1 and 75 (the default is 18 GB).

For Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise Edition type a value between 1 and 8000 (the default is 8000 GB). Click OK.

Note: Entries should be in decimal format.

Note: The setting in Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise Edition is useful when you want to limit the store size, mostly due to hardware restrictions.

  1. Create a new DWORD entry called "Database Size Buffer in Percentage" and give it the appropriate value between 1 and 100 to specify when you want events to be logged in the application log in Event Viewer to warn you that you are nearing the maximum size for a database.

The default value of 10 (i.e. 10%) will result in warning events to be logged when you have 10 percent capacity left before you reach the maximum size for that database.

  1. Create a new DWORD entry called "Database Size Check Start Time in Hours From Midnight" and give it the appropriate value between 0 and 23 to specify when you want Exchange to check the database size.

The default value of 5 results in Exchange Server checking the database size 5 hours after midnight (i.e. 5:00 AM).

  1. Close Registry Editor.
