SBS 2008 Exchange move log files and OS swap file

I found the wizards for moving the exchange data file and other things like WSUS, but I can't find where to change the exchange log file location and also the page swap for the OS.

Any idea's where I can do this?

Ok...I was assuming that you had previously made page/swap file changes to other systems such as a workstation or laptop or other server...Changing it for SBS is no different

Simply right click on the Computer Icon, click on Properties > Advanced Tab > Performance Section > Click on Settings button.  Click on the "Change" Button in the virtual memory section
I'm not infront of my server right now but the above should get you close to where you need to be.

As for log files

There are no wizards for those two.  Pagefile gets moved just like on any other system

Ok... like I asked before , I found the wizards for other things...
But telling me it gets move like on any other system is no answer.
How about details for where it's at for exchange logs and page swap file locations.

I checked out the page swap area and in the virtual memory section there is nothing about location change, just size and whether its managed by the system or not.

In the upper section does it list your C: Drive?  (probably shows the current page file there), does it list other drives (D:  E:  F:, etc)   If any of those are mapped drives...don't use those

emumasterAuthor Commented:
Yes it lists C: and it lists other mapped drives.
I have a drive mapped just for where I want the swap file.
But you say don't use other mapped drives.
Others have said when using sbs 2008 to allocate a separate partition for the swap file and relocate it.

How many physical hard drives do you have in your SBS 2008 Server and how are they configured?
Raid 0 (no raid)
Raid 1 (Mirroring)
Raid 5 (3 or more drives configured as one volume)

emumasterAuthor Commented:
there are 4 physical drives in the system.

(2) 250 Gig drives in raid 1
(2) 1 Terrabyte drives in raid 1

Cris HannaCommented:
And how are these drives partitioned/drive letters assigned?

emumasterAuthor Commented:
On the 250 gig raid 1 is:

C: the Os  137 gig
P: 25 Gig swap file partition (unused)
L: 70 gig  Exchange Logs(they reside here)

On the 1 Terrabyte Raid 1
F:  770 gig for Data (unused)
X:  98 gig Exchange Database (resides here)
W: 40 Gig WSUS (resides here)
s:  15 gig SharePoint (resides here)

this is all a new install and I only have one user put on the system  and no pc's hooked up yet.

how much RAM in the server?
your pagefile should be two times the amount of RAM
so go back to the area where you were before, in the upper section, click on P:
Then below set the min and max to the same number...again should be two times the amount of RAM
Then click the set button
Then click on C: in the upper area, then click the radio button next to no page file...then press the set button
REBOOT

8 gig ram on the server

should the page file be on a different spindle?
My P: is on the first set of drives where the os is

Ideally it should be on a different spindle
