Hi,

We've got a virtual (hyper-v) exchange 2016 server.

The host hyper-v has 2 vhdx files on it, serving as the 2 hard-drives of the exchange machine; one is for the exchange's OS & the other contains the DB only.

These 2 vhdx files are sitting on the same physical hard-drive back at the hyper-v host server, which is starting to fill up.

Can I simply move the Mail-DB.vhdx file (the Exchange's hard-drive on which we only keep the Exchange DB) from one drive to the other on the host machine, and simply point to the virtual hard disk's new location?

Is there anything I'm missing? any specific guidelines? something to keep in mind or to be aware of?

Thank!
