Hi,

is this Exchange part of some cluster or standalone?
Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus -Identity:<Server\StorageGroupName> should give you some info about it.

Other use full commands like:
Service Health – Test-ServiceHealth –Server “Name of the Server”
Mailbox DB Status - Get-MailboxDatabase –Server “Name of the Server” –Status

As I recall, migrating SG to new drive should not be difficult process.

Regards,
Ivan.

pramod1,

Here it is the script that you can try:

Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus -Server (Name of your mailbox)| Select Identity, CCRTargetNode, SummaryCopyStatus, CopyQueueLength, ReplayQueueLength, Suspend, Seeding, LatestFullBackupTime, ServiceDown, FailedMessage | ft -AutoSize

Open in new window


Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | Select Name, Mounted, EdbFilePath, LastFullBackup, LastCopyBackup, BackupInProgress, OriginatingServer| sort Name | ft -Wrap -AutoSize

Open in new window
