Hi All,

In Exchange Server 2010 mailbox server with no DAG configured, where can I find the Exchange mailbox logs directory?

I've traverse through directory structure below: G:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox but no transaction log can be found except CatalogData-02209152-5b34-42df-8dc0-64c7da56410f-77ae93eb-5e4b-49f2-a63c-4cd3e7574c7a directory in each of the mailbox database folder and the big .EDB file only.

Because in my previous experience in Exchange Server 2007 with CCR configured, the log files can be found in the mailbox server on separate drives or directories.

Thanks.

If you go to the properties of the DBs in exchange management console the path will be listed. It can also be moved if the DB is offline.

Mike, I still cannot see it from my Exchange Management console.

When I go to Organization Configuration | Mailbox | Database Management tab and right click Properties on the mailbox DB, I cannot see any Log file path in any tabs ?

Try Organization Configuration > Mailbox > Database Management Tab right click a database and select "move database path" it should give you the current location of the DB and log file.

You can also run this from the Exchange Management Shell to list all DBs and paths

Get-MailboxDatabase -status | ft name,edbfilepath,logfolderpath
