Hello,

How do I change the path of the log of an Exchange 2010 database from EMC?

Will I need to dismount the database first?

Thanks.

Hi Nav,

Yes, you can do it from the EMC or Powershell, but it is requiring you to dismount the database in either way.

EMC:

  1. Start the Exchange Management Console on the server on which the storage group is located.
  2. In the console tree, expand Server Configuration, and then click Mailbox.
  3. In the result pane, click the Mailbox server that contains the storage group for which you want to change the log file location.
  4. In the work pane, click the storage group for which you want to change the log file location.
  5. In the action pane, click Move Storage Group Path. The Move Storage Group Path wizard appears.
  6. On the Introduction page, the Log files path box displays the location where your log files are currently stored. Click Browse to specify a location to which to move these files.
  7. Click Move. A warning appears that all databases in the storage group must be temporarily dismounted, which will make them inaccessible to any user. To continue, click Yes.
  8. On the Completion page, confirm whether the log file path was changed successfully. A status of Completed indicates that the wizard completed the task successfully. A status of Failed indicates that the task was not completed. If the task fails, review the summary for an explanation, and then click Back to make any configuration changes. Click Finish to complete the Move Storage Group Path wizard.

EMS:
You will need to dismount your DB before running this command below
Move-DatabasePath –Identity “Your Storage Group\Mailbox Database”   –LogFolderPath L:\Logs

Open in new window


If you are using DAG, then you can use the steps described in: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd979782(v=exchg.141).aspx

Isn't I need to go to organization configuration instead of server configuration?

Please check if the below is ok:
1. dismount mymailboxdatabase
2. EMC>Organization Configuration>database
3. select mymailboxdatabase, click "move database path"
4. change the new path of the log file.  database path remains unchanged
5. click move
6. mount database

Thanks.
