Which version of Exchange?
If it's 2003 Standard you can only have one mailstore per storage group and you can only have one storage group.

Hi,

OK, but which edition of Exchange? If your Excahnge 2003 edition is Standard then you can't create another storage group, you can only have One storage group with one mailbox store, and if you have exhcnage 2003 Enterprise then you can have Up to four storage groups.

See this for more clarification: http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-6089015.html

Thanks a lot guys!!

Now I got my first storage group with my mailbox store in it, but the space is overload.
How can I increase the space for my First storage group and the mailbox store?

Thanks!

Hi,

What do you mean by increasing the store space? If you are talking about physical H.D space is not enough then move your store to another H.D or partition where you have space available. This will help you how to move: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/821915

Hi,

First of all make sure you have all latest service packs 2 of Exchange and other updates installed. Then follow this method to increase the limit of mailbox store, The limit can be increased to as much as 75 GB by using a registry key: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912375
