I'm running Exchange 2010 standard meaning I cannot do this via EMC.  I just want to move the log files not the database itself.  I'm looking for experts help.  Can I truncate the move-database cmdlet as follows to accomplish?

Move-DatabasePath -Identity 'dbname' -LogFolderPath 'y:\data\dbname\logs'

I understand the database will be dismounted and offline during the move.

I would ideally Dismount the Database clear everything to XYZ folder and then simply do a move using EMC .... will save time and new logs can always be generated

I do not have the EMC option to 'Move Database Path' it may have to do with the fact I'm running Standard and not Enterprise.  

By "Clear everything to XYX folder" do you mean manually move the log files to new location?  Also can you verify that the cmdlet above will move the log file path?  Last step would be to mount database.

That command is fine. If you have any doubt just pipe -whatif and you will see what will be done, later remove whatif and run the command again.
