At enterprise level, whether large or small an advance and high-end mailing system matters a lot. Keeping the business requirements in mind Microsoft has created a comprehensive email application called Microsoft Exchange Server to match the ever-increasing competition in business world. Microsoft Exchange Server is quicker and more efficient when compared to any of its peers. Its added layer of security protects it from many harmful contents like virus or Trojan that come in attached to emails. Keeping the security issues in mind this is an amazing option, any organization can ever have.

However, at times there might be a situation when you have to run Eseutil exchange 2003 against a database on a computer having Windows operating system 2003 that does not have Microsoft Exchange Server installed on it. This condition usually occurs when there is not enough free space on the Exchange server to complete typical tasks like an offline defragmentation of an Exchange Server database file. You may also need it when you find your Exchange server corrupted.

In lack of enough free space on the Exchange server, the option you are left with is copying Exchange binaries to a non-Exchange server temporarily. The other idea you can work on is that you can run Exchange binaries from a network share. As a part of solution, you must install Exchange in Administrator-only mode. When Exchange in Administrator-only mode is installed, the appropriate binaries are copied to the destination computer. For successful completion of the procedure, using the same versions of Extensible Storage Engine (ESE) files that are on the Exchange server is recommended.

To run Eseutil exchange 2003 for Exchange Server 2003 follow below mentioned steps:

1.Create a new folder on the computer that does not have Exchange Server 2003 installed.

2.Copy the Eseutil.exe, Ese.dll, Jcb.dll, Exosal.dll, and Exchmem.dll files from the Exchange Server 2003 computer's Drive:\Exchsrvr\Bin folder to the new folder that you created.

3.Change directory to the new folder at a command prompt.

4.Run the eseutil command from this folder against any databases that were copied from the Exchange Server 2003 computer.

Despite of the presence of Eseutil exchange 2003 there might be a situation when this tool also may not work. If the language locale setting in Exchange Server does not match the language locale setting of the computer without Exchange server where you are trying to run Eseutil exchange 2003, you will receive the error message "Error -1062 (JET_errInvalidLanguageId, Invalid or unknown language ID)" while running Eseutil exchange 2003.
