exchange drive (need to swap)
Posted on 2002-03-25
Any help or comments on the following situation would be very usefull.
We have a 2 server exchange 2000 organisation on a Win 2000 domain. On our
2nd Exchange server we need to replace the drive as the drive that exchange
was installed on was an external scsi drive (e) that is now on its last
legs. So, we have installed a new 20gb internal drive (f). Question is what
is the best way to transfer exchange from the E drive to F.
Can I do another software installation to the new drive and then restore the
database eventhough I've got an existing exchange installation on another
drive or should I just copy the folder from one drive to another and swap the drive letters(I presume
this wont work). Somebody also mentioned that the server properties within the Exchange admin program contains directory settings but I think these only relate to the actual database files and the raw program files.
