  • Bigger Drives causes no Stores to Mount

    On an SBS2003 server the OS drives were getting too small. The OS is on a RAID1 array and all data is on a RAID5 array. Replaced the OS drives with larger ones, reinstalled Windows and restored the OS from tape via ntbackup. All seemed well until I tested email and found that neither the Mail or Public stores will mount. Mounting generates a " 0x8004011D" error msg and the event log lists c1041724 error. Rolled back to smaller drives and all is well.

    Have limited access to this server (read: only late at night). Don't understand why this didn't work. Can anyone give me a clue as to what to look at/for when I attempt this again?

    Solved my own problem. The transaction logs for Exchange are kept on the OS array and MUST be purged before restoring, otherwise there are merged logs from 2 different times.

    Best to stop SMTP, Exchange, Blackberry, DHCP, Symantec and SQL services before backing up and again when restoring.
