I have two exchange 2010 standard servers in a DAG. I have 4 databases on one that replicate to the other. I have one database on each that does not replicate. So I have 5 databases on each server.
I need to create new databases and move email accounts to free up tons of white space due to archiving and a handful of users leaving. I can't mount any newly created db because I am on standard and 5 is the limit. I have 3 databases around 200 GB each and one around 40 GB. I don't have much room left on the drive the databases are on.
I need help with a strategy to move mailboxes and then delete databases to free up room, preferably without adding much space to the drives.
Thanks for any help
