Manually move Exchange 2003 mailstore to different disk

JWSIT asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I wanted to move 1 of our 4 mailstores to a different disk using the EMC. Everything seems to go ok but after an hour or 2 in the process it halts on an error in the lines of not enough resources. I now want to manually copy the mailstore's EDB & STM to this new disk (e.g. using ESEUTIL /Y) but how do I update Exchange? As in: how do I make Exchange aware this specific mailstore is on a different disk.
Last thing I want to do is bring down all other mailstores just to make this change.
