Using the RSG, is there a way to mount a Mailbox Store located in a folder with the Read-Only file attribute set or located on Read-Only media such as a CD-Rom.  With SQL server this is possible and the databse status will be set as Read-Only.  I cannot find any MS supported info on this topic so am wondering if there are unsupported "startup" flags for the IS as exist for SQL (Tflags).

I don't think that you can mount it in Exchange (not sure) but you can user a tool called Power Controls to mount the database.

Michael is right, what you're asking is not supported with Exchange.
