I understand the command to create an RSG in 2007 is:
New-StorageGroup –Server E2K7S04 –LogFolderPath “E:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\First Storage Group\RSG" –Name “Recovery Storage Group” –SystemFolderPath “E:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\First Storage Group\RSG” –Recovery
Can someone tell me what the difference between the LogFolderPath and SystemFolderPath is? What files actually go in there?
I guess the LogPath is for the transaction logs and restore.env file, what about the SystemFolderPath, is this for the actual restored database and checkpoint file path? Could someone confirm this? Should these both point to the same location or different?
What confuses me is that the next step is to create the EDB file:
New-MailboxDatabase –MailboxDatabaseToRecover “Mailbox Database” –StorageGroup “E2K7S04\Recovery Storage Group” –EDBFilePath “E:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\First Storage Group\RSG\Mailbox Database.edb”
But why can't we just use the EDB file that gets restored by the backup?
