i am currently testing my exchange 2007 and the use of the LCR functionality
i have a setup with the log files on the E: Drive and the EDB files on the F: drive and have a separate raid array for the LCR copy which is the L: drive
i would like to test an activation of a LCR copy to see how it works and would like to use the
e> without the -ReplaceLocation option
as per http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997567.aspx
so i checked the status of the LCR which was healthy
dismounted the database using dismount-Database and entered the name of the mailbox database
so far so good
i then ran the Restore-StorageGroup -Identity:<server>:\<Stora
e> command and this resulted in
WARNING: Restore-StorageGroupCopy on First Storage Group was successful. All logs were successfully copied.
i would like to use explorer to copy the LCR files to the production path (don't want to change drive letters, or mount points) but i am not sure which files to copy? do i just need to copy the edb file or also the transaction log files? i found this link http://searchexchange.techtarget.com/generic/0,,sid43_gci1296344,00.html#
but it does not tell you which files you should copy
one other thing that i have noticed is that i use a snapshot technology by IBM fastback that backs up the active copy (it cannot do the passive copy) and it works well but the transaction log files off the LCR copies are not truncated (it does truncate the active copy transaction log files), is this something that i can do manually, and how do i know which transaction log files on the passive copy to delete?
many thanks for your help
