EXCHANGE 2007, STORAGE , DRIVE LETTERS
Posted on 2016-09-18
we have exchange 2007 enterprise on windows server 2008 standard
I am trying to move storage groups and its associated mailbox database and logs to new drives created by storage admin guy
I want to reuse some drive letters once I have already migrated 1 storage group to new drive.
let say for ex. I migrated accounting storage group from G drive to N drive. so now G drive has nothing in it .
I want to use G drive now for finance storage group. there is already unallocated drive disk created but it is not assigned to any drive letter.
so here are my steps, please correct me if I am mistaking anywhere
1) rename the present G drive as old and format it ( DO I NEED TO FORMAT ON THE DRIVE WHICH I AM GOING TO USE FOR ANOTHER STORAGE GROUP)
2) once formatting is done I will go to disk management and use the disk drive which has same space as present finance storage group is mapped to let us say finance storage group is mapped to P drive which has 150gb so I will make sure that unallocated disk drive has 150 GB and then create simple volume
anything I missed
