Exchange 2003: DB on different LUN has disapeared
Posted on 2011-03-17
I created a temp db on my Exchange 2003 server in order to move users temporarily out of a massive DB that needs to be reinitialized. The DB is on a different LUN than my other db's (all on separate drives, NAS).
Upon creating a dummy user and setting its mailbox to reside on this new db, the DB has just up and disapeared out of Exchange server manager. The two db files were created on the server but the DB does not appear.
I have not rebooted this server as it is a considered a high-availability box but I have an upcoming maintenance window coming up that I would like to troubleshoot this issue.
Any advice or suggestions are welcomed.
