  • error after cloning

    i tried cloning my exchange 2010 hd (to move to a bigger hd capacity)

    i used acronis true image, i believe i was able to clone the hd. log-on was successuful.

    but after i tried to connect to my mailbox (owa) i gives me this error

    Anything in event logs?
    Have you checked all services are running?
    Are stores mounted?

      Re: error after cloning

      the observation i have is in the services:

      exchange transport is not started. i tried to start the service but it gives me an error.

      i brought back the old hd but if i logged on thru owa it gives me an ad error....
      i restarted my dc, then restarted my exchange... working fine

      but still i need to change to a bigger capacity hd ang cloning i think is the easiest way
      any suggestions

        tell me more about the base hardware.

        Do you have just a single drive, or do you have a RAID volume, or what?

          What roles does the server hold?
          Repeat earlier question about event logs

              Alternatively do a swing migration to better hardware. Personally I don't trust anything that does cloning or imaging when it comes to Exchange, I'll only use a proper Exchange aware backup application.
