Database path

I have two domains zxc.com and cxz.com, both are in the same forest zxc plc. I installed Exchange 2000 in the first domain (zxc.com). I then installed a second Exchange server 2000 for the cxz.com domain. The both site want to use their own domain addresses i.e user@zxc.com or user@cxz.com .

The problem is that on the second server for the cxz.com domain the database path is M:\zxc.com\mailboxs.

Why is this and can it be changed?

M: is a virtual drive created by Exchange 2000.  Clients do not access Exchange via the drive mapping.  Why do you need to change it?

The company has changed hands and the domain master (e.g. schema) is going to be moved to their new domain.

Why does that drive a change in the virtual path?  It doesn't matter what the path is, Exchange will still work.

The M drive is a virtual representation of your mailbox and public folder stores. As geoffryn mentioned, this will not affect Exchange, and you should not try to change ANYTHING dealing with this drive. You should not back this drive up, you should not scan this drive, you should not change anything on this drive. Changing so much as one setting on this drive can mess up your whole installation.

To demonstrate this, you can set the information store to disable, restart the server, and you will not even see the M drive appear until you start the information store and mount your databases.....
