Deleting Object or Report Data

The Delete Data node provides the functions that delete Exchange object data and statistical report data from your database:

Deleting Report Data
Report Data allows you to delete a date range of statistical data relating to Exchange objects including organizations, servers or DAGs, distribution groups, mailboxes, or public folders.
Deleting Object Data
Object Data allows you to delete entire Exchange objects including organizations, servers or DAGs, distribution groups, mailboxes, or public folders.
Clearing the Database
Clear Database removes all information from your database.

The Report Data and Object Data functions also provide the option of showing only objects that were deleted from the Exchange server but that still exist in the MessageStats Database.

If you accidently delete report data and the tracking log files still exist in your archive files, you can replace the deleted data. Reimporting the archived tracking logs only recovers usage metrics and does not recover Exchange object data.

Deleting Report Data

Use the Report Data function to delete a date range of statistical data relating to Exchange objects including

The information you want to delete becomes more granular as you progress from the top to the bottom. When you check one of the check boxes on the Report Data dialog, a list appears for you to select the appropriate Exchange objects.

If you select a DAG, all the servers that are in the DAG are also selected.

For example, suppose you select an organization using the first check box and a server using the second check box. MessageStats deletes all statistical information for all mailboxes on that server.

Alternately, if you only want to delete information for a single mailbox, you must set the information for all of the previous check boxes to focus to the single mailbox.

If you select an object that does not have child objects, the remaining check boxes disappear. For example, If you select a distribution group using the second check box, there are no child objects, so the Server and Mailbox check boxes do not display.

Deleting Object Data

When you delete Object data, objects such as an Exchange server or an organization and all the historical statistical data for the object are deleted. There is no date range. For example, suppose an Exchange server has failed. In this case, you might not want to retain its records in the MessageStats database.

If you want to delete data only for specific time period, use the delete Report Data option.

Use the Object Data function to delete Exchange objects and all related historical data for:

The information you want to delete becomes more granular as you progress from the top to the bottom. When you select one of the check boxes on the Object Data dialog box, a list appears for you to select the appropriate objects.

For example, suppose that you select an organization. If you do not select a specific server, MessageStats removes information for all servers and mailboxes in that organization. Alternately, if you only want to delete information for a single mailbox, you must select all of the previous check boxes to focus to the single mailbox.

The Clear Database function also provides the option of deleting the gathering schedules that you have established.

Before you delete data, ensure that no MessageStats consoles attached to the database are currently writing information to the database. If you use the Database Management utility while a MessageStats console is writing to the database, you risk corrupting your database.
