About configuring a pause in consistency checks for Exchange 2007 and earlier


This option is only applicable to Exchange 2003 SP2 or later and for Exchange 2007 if the Exchange Management Console is not installed on the alternate client.

The value is used during snapshot validation by the Exchange command ESEUTIL /pXXX where XXX is the value of Snapshot verification I/O throttle. ESEUTIL defines the /p setting as a forced 1-second pause after every XXX I/Os to limit the I/O rate during database verification. See the Microsoft Exchange documentation regarding the ESEUTIL command for details.
