Hello All,

We have installed server 2008 and exchange on a dell power edge R510. We now have installed a Dell MD1000 storage device, and I would like to move the database and log files from the exchange server to the dell MD1000 which is the E:\ drive because our C:\ drive on the Exchange server is get very small now.

Can someone please help me with this ASAP!

you need to use the move-databasepath cmdlet


something like move-databasepath DBName -EdbFilePath x:\folder\name.edb -logfilepath y:\folder
