I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To move log files
Start Exchange System Manager.
Click Administrative Groups.

Right-click Exchange Organization in Exchange System Manager, and then click Properties. Click to select the Display Administrative Groups check box. Locate the storage group where you want to change log file paths, right-click the storage group, and then click Properties. Click the General tab, click the Browse button next to the Transaction log location box, and then specify the new drive or folder location for the log files.

Hope that helps

You do it in the Exchange Shell Console:

Move-DatabasePath –Identity “First Storage Group\Mailbox Database”
 –EdbFilePath “F:\SG1\Mailbox Database.edb”
