exchange 2010 log files move

I'm going to move my log files to a new location, but wanted to double check, during the move will my mailstore still be mounted, and will the users on that mailstore that the logs are being moved, still have access to their email.

thanks you

Yes, mailbox stores will be dismounted during log file move. The time required to move log files depend on the size of log files. It would be good to do a log file move after a full/Incremental backup. Because backup will purge log files and there will be very less log files to move. You could use EMC or following Exchange Management Shell command to move log files.

Move-DatabasePath –Identity “First Storage Group\Mailbox Database”   –LogFolderPath G:\SG1

Yeh you need to arrange an email outage. If you are just moving logs it shouldn't take too long.

as you were already told the database will be dismounted, however a common way to do it to minimize the downtime is to enable circular logging first on the database you want to me

so 1. enable circular logging and give it some time (a couple of hours usually) when you see that all the log files are deleted and you are just left with a few logs then initiate the move.

this will reduce the down time to a few minutes (probably 2 or 3 not more)

once the logs are moved don't forget to disable the circular logging again

good luck
