?s about Migrating Exchange to New Server (2003 ENT/200 GB IStore, 1 SG)
Posted on 2007-10-10
We are running MS Exchange 2003 Enterprise SP2 on a W2003 SP1 Ent box. Hardware is fine, but the hierarchy of how it was setup seems halphazard to me.
Disk 1 = 70 GB (C:\ which only has 800 MB free now, E:\ (Logs, 50 GB free...)
DIsk 2: 200 GB (F:\ which contains a pub1.edb/pub1.stm that are 3.4 GB/1.4GB)
MSA HP Array = 1 TB (L:\ which contains the SMTP logs and the priv1.edb\priv1.stm that are 201 GB/35 GB)
But my main question right now is - I am planning on migrating Exchange to a fresh built server, but in doing so wanted to gather the best practices to adopt so as to not run into any problems.
There are two major things I wanted to do. Migrate the Exchange services/database to a newly built server, and go from having 1 storage group with all 35 users now, into multiple storage groups.
