I inherited an Exchange 2010 server that has a bunch of dynamic disks. To make matters worse, some of the drives are spanned across multiple dynamic disks. I want to clean it up since it's just a mess and I can't get a proper backup.
Not sure if this helps or hinders, but it is a VM on Hyper-V.
I started by setting up a couple of new VHDs and going to be moving the stores and logs to those. One of the spanned dynamic drives has the Exchange install.
Here's the mess:
Would it be easier to set up a new box with the same name with the /disaster recovery switch? Or since I have the space set up a new Exchange server and move everything to that?
The saving grace is that this is not production. It is purely a historical archive.
