Hi, i've some troubles on my cisco unity 4.0.5 server installed on Win2k3SP1 us, Exchange 2K3 integration, and MSDE on the same Unity server.

I'v recenttly noticed that i've no free space on disk C: (0 octets available).

After investigation, i'm notice that

UnityDb_log.LDF have reached 6,2 Go.

Each night i've some periodic backup with Veritas backup exec with full methode of backup for MS Sql bases with dedicated agent.

I've not the MS Tools 'entreprise manager' available with MSDE :( and i've try to launch a backup with only transaction logs, but i've A veritas error 'need to desactivate option 'trunc on chkpt' with enterprise manager !

I need to recover immediatly some free space on my system C:

How it's possible ???

For you information:

UnityDb.mdf is 7 Mo only

Thanks for your reply.

Serge, perform these steps if you haven't tried this already:

C:\>osql -E

1>use unitydb


1>backup log unitydb with no_log


1>dbcc shrinkdatabase(unitydb)



Note that it may sit there for a while after you hit go after the shrinkdatabase command. This will bring the log file down to next to nothing. This is from the following link, under the section "Shrink the Cisco Unity database.


Good luck,
