Reclaiming Disk Space in Domain and Post Office Databases

As you add information to your system, the domain databases (wpdomain.db) and post office databases (wphost.db) increase in size. If you delete information, the space created in the databases for the information is not immediately recovered. GroupWise will use the free space before requiring more disk space; however, if you have deleted a large amount of information, you might want to reclaim unused database space. If you have frequent changes to your users, especially deletions, you should occasionally reclaim disk space.

  1. In ConsoleOne, browse to and select the Domain object or Post Office object where you want to reclaim disk space.

  2. Click Tools > GroupWise Utilities > System Maintenance.

    System Maintenance dialog box
  3. Select Reclaim Unused Space, then Run.

  4. When prompted, make sure the Path to Database is correct. If an incorrect path is displayed, browse to and select the path to the database where you want to reclaim disk space. Click OK.
