We have the Exchange 2003 database on a server and plan on moving it to a SAN. Has anyone had experience doing this? Is there anything we should watchout for?

We plan on dismounting the stores change the location of the database in ESM then copy the database files from the old location to the new location then mount the stores.

What do you mean Exchange will move them for you?  Are ou saying the Exchange will move the old data in the old location to the new location?

well in ESM when you change the location of the database it will tell you it is going to unmount the database and then it will move the dabase files and re mount them for you when it is done
