43.3 Performing a Structural Rebuild of a User/Resource Database

The Structural Rebuild option of Mailbox/Library Maintenance rebuilds the structure of a user or resource database (userxxx.db) and reclaims any free space. It does not re-create the contents of the database. If you need to recover database contents as well as structure, see Section 43.4, Re-creating a User/Resource Database.

To rebuild a user database:

  1. In the GroupWise Admin console, browse to and click the name of the user or resource whose database needs to be rebuilt.

  2. Click Maintenance > Mailbox/Library Maintenance.

  3. From the Actions drop-down list, select Structural Rebuild.

  4. Using the tabs at the bottom of the Mailbox/Library Maintenance dialog box, set the following options:

    Selected options can be saved for repeated use. See Saving Mailbox/Library Maintenance Options.

  5. Click Run to perform a structural rebuild of the user database.

HINT:You can also perform this task for more than one user or resource at a time by using the Maintenance > Mailbox/Library Maintenance dialog on the Post Office where the users or resources are located, then selecting Maintenance on User/Resources on this Post Office.
