Exchange server migration and Logical Drive setup
Posted on 2014-03-14
Hello All -
I'm going to be migrating over from Exchange server enterprise 2003 to Exchange server enterprise 2010.
I looking at how to best setup my Logical drives and what is the best configuration for OS, Page file, Log files and Exchange Data.
I purchased a HP DL380p gen8 server with 8 300gb 15k rpm hard drives. So please let me know what Raid and how I should seperate the logical drives for the following items above (os, page file, log files, etc..)
On our current server I have 22gb for OS which 4.8 is still free, 8GB for pagefile which 5.8 is still free, 40gb for IIS Logs which gets flushed so its always around 38gb free and I have 420GB of Exchange data which only 173gb of free space remains.
I hope that gives you a better understanding of my enviroment also any documentation you can share about how to perform the migration would be great too once I get the proper setup configured. I will also be running the OWA on a different server as well.
Thank you for all your help and if you need any more info from me I will be happy to share it.
