What is Edbutil?

A command-line tool for versions 4.0 and 5.0 of Microsoft Exchange Server. Edbutil can be used to defragment, repair, and check the integrity of the following Exchange Server databases:

  • Directory database (dir.edb)
  • Private information store database (priv.edb)
  • Public information store database (pub.edb)

Edbutil works at the Joint Engine Technology (Jet) level and attempts to find and repair inconsistencies. It can also be used to defragment these databases, resulting in a database size reduction.
