I'm getting a -1018 databse error on one of my Exchange 2003 servers on the private store. Public store isn't reporting any errors. The server is still functional, I'm not seeing any negative effects (yet) except that I can't do a backup. My questions is, once I find and fix the hardware problem, can I create a new store on another disk array attached to the server, move all the mailboxes to the new store then just delete the original store? I figured this would cause less disruption than doing a restore of the original database.
Has anyone had any experience doing this?
