Cleaning up Exchange
Posted on 2005-04-07
I just ordered a Dell storage unit with 4 300GB drives to use as my Exchange storage (IS, mailboxes, etc...). I will be doing the easy (I hope) upgrade from Exchange 2000 Std. to Exchange 2000 Enterprise next week, but I noticed that I'm currently in Mixed Mode, but for what reason I'm not sure. This is the only Exchange server in our environment, but it may have been upgraded from 5.5 a long time ago......Is it ok to simply change it by clicking the little "Native Mode" check box? I don't want anything crazy to happen, which it usually does when I start messing with the Exchange server....
Question#2: When I get this storage unit attached and up and running, can I simply go into Exchange System Manager and move the MDBDATA folder over to this new drive and then point the Public and Private databases to that new location?
