  • Replacing hard drive on a failed DB copy

    I have a bad hard drive that I am replacing on a Windows 2008R2 service pack 2/ exchange 2010 sp2 machine. We have 5 DAG member and 5 DB on each server. It is one DB per hard drive and the log files are shared all on another drive.The problem is I am somewhat confused as to how to do this and or what steps.


    This server is now the passive node. I failed everything over to the other DB
    If I replace a drive and format this to be the same drive letter and name.
    Can I just run the following command
    Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy -Identity "Mailbox DB name\server2" -DeleteExistingFILES

    Will this just automatically look for a good copy and put the database and log files on this server.


    Please help and I am new at posting and at exchange.

    So you are not using RAID? Each mailbox database is stored on a separate drive for which you have no redundancy?
