Hello.

Single - Exchange Server 2007

I have succesfully (with all your help on EE) Exchange set up and fully working:

SSL Cert in place for Outlook Anywhere and OWA
Trusted Domains
Mailbox Recipients - all connected and working perfectly

What i have heard is its best to have the Transaction logs and Page File system on seperate disks. - i did already plan for this so they are available...  Currently im guessing - they are all on the same disk??

How do i go about moving these to:
d:\  - for the PageFile system?
e:\  - for the Transaction Logs?

The OS is currently on c:\ and the Exchange Storage Groups are on the f:\

Page File -> Control Panel/System/Advanced/Performance/Advanced/Change

Log Files -> Exchange Management Console/Server Config/Mailbox/
Right-click the storage group, select Move Storage Group Path, and use the wizard

Note that if you move the page file to a different volume, you will probably need to restart the server.

yeah i thought that would be the case with this sort of change.

Do you know how much i should be specifying it at? - normally i use the old rule of double Physical RAM... but in the case of exchange is there any best practices?

I would use double, too, with minimum and maximum set to the same value to fix the size.  I don't actually know (and can't find) the best practices value.  You can always run the BPA from the EMC, and see if it's happy.
