I think we will eventually move all users psts from local c: and mapped network drive (server) to a raid 5 nas of some sort (only for psts), we are also archiving in the cloud, but users still rely on psts.

Is there a simple process for removing psts from outlook onto another location without having to kick users out of outlook and causing errors in outlook when they re-open outlook (lost link to pst path)?

btw - outlook/exchange 2010

Thanks

No. Pst's must be local. Only use network locations for backing them up.

Microsoft does not support PST files on network storage.  While it does work most of the time, you put yourself/end users at greater risk of corruption and loss of data by doing so.  There is definitely no supported (and I'm not aware of any unsupported) way of moving PSTs without ensuring the users have outlook closed first.
