Move Exchange 2007 Database to a SAN
Posted on 2009-06-29
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
