Extending Storage Partition for Exchange 2010
Posted on 2014-11-26
I have an Exchange 2010 server running on an SBS2011 server and the Exchange Store has become too large for the partition. Mail is stuck in the queue and I am getting an error "The remote pipeline has stopped....."
There is capacity on the virtual disk on the RAID to extend the partition or create a new partition and use the SBS Console to move the Exchange Store to the larger storage. It I try to extend the partition is tells me I need to convert from a basic to a dynamic disk.
What is the best way out of this problem? Create a new partition or extend the existing? Is it OK to have Exchange on a dynamic disk?
