Drive letters not matching for Exchange 2010 DAG

Hi

2 Servers in a DAG, trying to add first mailbox database copy and I get an error that the logfilepath is not on a fixed drive (it is). Seems this is becuase the 2 servers do not have the same drive letters assigned.

Problem:

Exchange 1 has the Exchange 2010 program files and mailboxes on the E drive.
Exchange 2 has the Exchange 2010 program files and mailboxes on the D drive.

Obviously I can just go changing the drive letters around without completely destroying Exchange so what do I do?

If it helps, Exchange 2 is not being used in production yet so downtime is not an issue if I need it.

I would remove Exchange from the second server, wipe the server and rebuild it. MAKE SURE THAT YOU REMOVE EXCHANGE BEFORE WIPING.

All members of the DAG should be identical - same drive letters, same drive sizes etc.

I wouldn't remove Exchange and change the drive letters, as I have seen odd things happen where the old letter name still exists.

Simon.
