stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases 0

  Asked By: Madeline    Date: Dec 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 6638

The indexing server is generating errors in the Windows Event Logs
when it performs a full crawl. After some searching on the web I found
the above (subject line) command that I need to run.

Being our live environment I need to ensure that it would not do any
damage. The command

stsadm -o sync deleteolddatabases 5

Lists a few GUID values but I do not know what databases names they
refer to.

This is just to check if the database is not in sync with SSP > 5 days...
You can change these values  to 10 or 15 as well and you will get a result of
database GUID that was last synchronized, you can then take decision either to
clean them up or leave it... no harm in running in live  env.
