I've run into a situation where one of the files in

changelog, so I set that to what seems like a reasonably long amount of time (18 weeks)
but didn't see any decrease in the file size. I'm wondering now about the best
course of action. I can
a) move the whole dirsrv directory to another partition with more
space available and symlink the old location to the new, which worked when I tested it,
but I wanted to make sure I wouldn't be hosing something up the next time I upgrade.
If you have a large database with a large number of updates, it's
probably a good idea to have the changelog on a separate partition anyway.
I think that what you have done will work.
b) find some means of manually shrinking the *.db ( can you even do
Not the changelog db.
c) point dirsrv at a new location, and reinitialize the consumers
(which doesn't seem all that desirable)
Also a possibility, but as you say, undesirable.
Has anyone else found it necessary to shrink your changelogdb?
