Ok so I installed Exchange 2010 into my new VM (Server 2008 R2), I had the ISCSI initiator pointing to our SAN and put everything on that drive (exchange, databases). I would like to use Veeam backup software but they do not support the use of ISCSI initiator through windows, I would have to connect the LUN to ESXi and use the drive in that fashion.
So I am looking for a solution to move everything (exchange install/databases) to the local drive, removed the ISCSI initiator, attach the ISCSI to ESXi, create a new hard drive then move it back. Or at least move the databases on it. What would you guys recommend for the move and also, what recommendation would you have for exchange, keep exchange install on the root with database on a seperate drive or all together.
