where did you tell it to use the D drive?

if the databases are not on the D drive, you can use the exchange management GUI to right-click the mailbox store, properties, and move it to wherever you want - it'll move it by itself after you do that

from the exchange management shell you can run
get-mailboxdatabase "Mail box Database 067269" | fl Edb*

this will display the current location of the datase
to move the database you can run
Move-DatabasePath "Mail box Database 067269" -EdbFilePath d:\Folder

i have run the following shell command and endup with no such a objest on the AD server .i got 3 ad server AD1,AD2 and ADstandby (win2003). this one is saying that ther is no such a object in the AD standy . why is this refering to the ADstandby one without checking AD1. i have run the  get-mailboxdatabase and got the out put .  plase give your comment on this

there shouldn't be a space in it
get-mailboxdatabase "Mailbox Database 067269" | fl Edb*

run a dcdiag and look for any errors

the exchange server will use any domain controller within its ad site

the "Mailbox Database 0672696352.edb" file size is only 454MB?
as long as the file resides where you expect it you are good. it will grow (believe me) once users start using those mailboxes
