Moving Transaction Log Files in CCR

Posted on 2009-04-20
Last Modified: 2012-09-04
Hi Experts
I have a 2 node Cluster with Active and Passive. Unfortunately my log files and database files are in one location. Due to performance issues, I would now like to move the Transaction Logs on to a different physical disk all together.

Would like to know the steps that I would have to take and best practices if any in doing so.

Thanks & Regards

    k ..
    1) Logon on to the CCR Cluster
    2)  Suspend the Storage Group Copy in the Exchange Management Console
    3)  Make sure the new folder path is created on both the Active and Passive nodes
    4)  Right Click the Storage Group and choose Move Storage Group Path (This will change the log file location).  Follow the Wizard to point to the new path
    5) Resume the Storage Group Copy in the Exchange Management Console

    Hi, how's it going with the solution above ?

    can it be done using Exchange Management console or does it have to be with Powershell through Exchange Management Shell ?
