    Hi

    I have exchange 2000 enterprise edition installed on w2k server (Domain Controller), and since it is not best practice to put exchange on DC ,I brought a new server and install windows 2000 , then join it to the domain as a member server.

    I am planning to rehome exchange to the new server (move exchange from the DC to the new server). ther is a good MS article on this: http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;307917

    I give system partition 40 GB , and I keep the remaining 280 GB as a free space.
    now I need to partition this space, what do you think the best way and how many partition should I do?

    and what about the transaction log files , I read befor that it should be in different partition,, I need more clarification.

    Best Regards

    The best thing to do with the logfiles and DB is to put the system on a RAID1 array, the DB on a RAID5 array, and the logs on RAID1. If you don't have 7 disks, then at least use 2 disks for RAID1 (system) and 3 for RAID5 (db and logs).

      Actually, my server has a scsi controller with 6 disks (each 72 GB).

      so you suggest to put the system on RAID1 (2 disks)
      and configure the remaining 4 disks as RAID5 array for log and DB file.

      is that what you mean?

      Many thanks danielp, for your opinion.
