I have a exchange server running as VM in Vcenter server with three drives. C has OS, E has Exchange installation and F has DB and log.
I have setup second Exchange with MB and CAS (I wont be using CAS for HA) with same amount drives. During the installation it automatically added DB to default drive which I need to move from E to F.
I have already configured and stage cluster computer account with required permission and disabled it.
Before I add any member and witness to DAG would like to clarify that last part of the DAG process, which is CONFIGURING DATABASE COPIES. Is it important to create to DB copies for successful replication or it should sync with secondary server without copy.
IF the DB copies are needed, would be copies be same size as mailbox database. Is it recommended to create and stage separate drive on both server for creating DB copies.
My existing drive for DB and log has 40% of space and do not want to use same drive for DB copies and I presume, if I use different drive letter for one server I have to use same on second one too.
