Enable or Disable Circular Logging in Exchange 2010

By default circular logging is disabled but there are some cases where Circular logging can be helpful, for example when migrating a large amount of mailboxes from an older Exchange version to Exchange 2010.

Through EMC
  1. Under Organization Configuration click on Mailbox;
  2. Click on Database Management where you find Databases;
  3. Take properties by right click and under meiantenance tab apply check of Enable circular logging.

Through PowerShell

Set-MailboxDatabase -CircularloggingEnabled:$true

However, remember to re-disable it when done.

Set-MailboxDatabase -CircularloggingEnabled:$false

The Information Store must be restarted for either of these changes to take place!
