Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 is running on a Windows Server 2003-based server.
You create a new database in a storage group that resides on the mount point that has sufficient free space.
The mount point root that hosts the mount point has fewer than 20 megabytes (MB) of free space.
In this scenario, the indexing of the new database does not work correctly. In the CatalogData directory in the storage group that is used for the new database, you find only some of the files that should be present in this directory.
Additionally, when the MSSearch service tries to create catalogs for the new database, the following event is logged in the Application log:
Event ID: 104 Raw Event ID: 104 Record Nr.: 32084 Category: General Source: MSExchange Search Indexer Type Error Message: Exchange Search Indexer failed to enable the Mailbox Database Storage Group 2\Mailbox Database (GUID = f2cddfad-167a-4329-bc22-6a0f8e418f9a) after 1 tries. The last failure was: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Unable to SetProperty on catalog ExSearch-f2cddfad-167a-4329-bc22-6a0f8e418f9a-6d25762a-59ca-4163-8b25-d905b31aa421.

It will retry after 0 minutes.
To work around this behavior, make sure that more than 20 MB of free disk space are available on the mount point root.
This behavior is by design.
