Just want some feedback on a plan for fixing a storage issue in our environment.
Currently, we have Exchange 2007sp3 installed, handling all of our mail flow. Two of the databases, are on an external eSata drive hanging off of the Exchange server (I inherited this setup). I don't feel comfortable with this setup, and so I want to move the databases to a real server with proper storage.
I am planning on creating a new VM (Hyper-V) Server 2012 and installing Exchange 2013 on it. Only installing the mailbox role, and moving the databases to it. Leaving the bulk of the Exchange roles and services on our current, 2007sp3 box. I have done Exchange upgrades and changes a few times, so I am fairly comfortable with this, however I wanted some feedback on my plan.
Anyone have any thoughts on this, or has anyone had a similar setup? Any issues?
