I would like to know if there is a way to schedule the dismount and mount of a specific messag store on Exchange 2003 SP2, Enterprise edition.

We have a message store for students that I would to dismount each morning, and mount each afternoon.

Any suggestions?

I don't think theres a command line command that can mount and dismount your stores.

But found a script here thats supposed to do it.

Arath,  Thanks for the tip.... I'm an infrastructure guy, not a programmer.... if I had a server named GS3 and a mail store named STUDENTS, what would I need to change in the script?

I don't think you have to change the script. It takes them as an argument.

from the first script on that page:
cscript StoreDB.vbs Mode Servername StorageGroupName MDBName

Mode = mount, dismount or delete as first argument

in your example:
storedb mount GS3 "first storage group" students

I haven't tried the script itself. But it looks like it should work with the right arguments.
