  • Move Infomation Store Question

    I am adding a new hard drive to my Exchange 2003 server and would like to move the information store to this drive. Would the following procedure work?

    Install and format new drive
    Dismount store
    Change drive letter on partition which currently holds the information store
    Assign that drive letter to new drive
    Copy information store files to new drive
    Mount store

    No. To move the store you should right click the Store, select properties, go to the Database tab and browse to the folder on the new drive where you want the store to be. ESM will then dismount the store, move it, remount it, and update AD.

      This is the official word on how to move the database: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/821915
      No other method is supported.
