Exchange 2010 Database Location and future DAG
Posted on 2010-01-05
I just installed my first Exchange 2010 Mailbox Server and noticed something interesting about the installation routine: Setup did not ask me where it wanted me to store the Database and Log files.
Is this something new for Microsoft? Do they no longer recommend that logs and databases be on different partitions from the OS?
Would that recommendation change if you were to implement Database Availability Groups (DAG)? Would you want them to all be in the same place in order to enable failover?
