Hello

I need to move the Database to a SAN.

Here's what I have done so far:

- Created a mapped drive E: that points to a Folder on a Server that is connected to a SAN

When creating a new Database on Folder E:, it's not possible to mount the Database.

 It gives the following Error:

 Exchange is unable to mount the database that you specified. Specified Database: <DATABASE> Error Code: MapiExceptionJetErrorDatabaseInvalidPath: Unable to mount database. (hr=0x80004005, ec=-1217)

When I move or create a new Database on the local Drives C: or D:, the Database can be mounted without problems.

Now the big question for me is, when it is possible to mount a database on local drives, why doesn't it work using a mapped drive?

Thanks for any help
