Moving PST files to 2nd server
Posted on 2011-02-18
In a Win 2003 domain with two Win 2003 servers, the main 2003 server runs exchange 2003 and is overloaded and has too much traffic. The exchange system git the 16 Gig limit a few years ago and I had to update the registry to expany the exchaneg db to 60 gig. It has worked fine since.
The Exchange DB is now at 50 gig and we don't have funds to upgrade exchange, so in the last few mionths I've had users move old email to their own PST files I added on the server.
The main server is filling up and I want to move those PST files to a 2nd server. Do I just move the PST files and reconenct each one into Outlook 2003/2007 seperately or is there a safer method of moving and reconnecting so no pst data is lost?
