I am running Exchange 2010.
I am going through a dry run of my DR plan, and I need to recover databases from one Exchange server, onto another. Here is where I'm at:
I have a Server2, also running exchange 2010.
What I need to do, is mount my databases from server1, onto server2, but in a different absolute path.
Example, if I go through the MS procedure, but keep the absolute path the same, meaning the db is located on \\server2\d\exch\db01\ then it works fine.
The issue is I need to mount it to a different absolute path. I need to mount it in say \\server2\e\exch\db01
When I try to do this, i get errors. I wonder if there is metadata in the database file itself that looks for that absolute path, and if so, is there an eseutil command to change that information prior to mounting the db?
This must be possible, all the database portability features in ex2007/2010 makes me think this should be fairly easy, once you know the procedure.
so the question is, has anyone recovered a database to a different server, using a different absolute path, and if so, how did you do it? MSKB article with the procedure would be great.
I started here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd876926.aspx
but this doesn't account for different absolute paths.
