Moving Exchange 2007 Mailboxes to a new Storage Group/database
Posted on 2011-10-13
My scenario is this. For some reason after disabling the LCR on my Staff StorageGroup/database I no longer have the option to turn it back on. Hav subsequently applied SP3 and Ropllup5 SP3.
I need to get the LCR happening again for security.
I have another Storage Group that has LCR available and have created a new database in it with no problems.
Have been reading on-line and it seems that there should be no issues in moving the staff mailboxes from the existing database to the new one - other than the deleted folder being left behind (a GOOD thing) and maybe a loss of connectivity for each user as their mailbox is moved.
So just want to confirm their are no other 'gotchas'.
Always nervous around the Exchnage server, since spending a long Easter when I demoted the Exchange Server from being a DC - found out that in MS talk 'Unsupported" = "Do Not do this" :-(
