After my installation of Exchange 2003 I see that my Priv and Pub.edb databases are on my system drive.  I know in Exchange 5.5 there was an Optimizer.  Does 2003 have this?  If so where is it located.

    hi buddy,
                   the performance optimizer was removed starting from exchange 2000 and it is also missing in exchange 2003.
    because microsoft designed in such a way that exchange 2003 is self tuning.

    if u want to move the databse to different drive ,then now it is done by ESM.

    see the below site

    and see the topic page 3 "Fine tuning exchange 2003"

    if have anymore pls ask.hope this help
