Use the Move Database Path Wizard to move an Exchange Server 2007 mailbox database or public folder database (.edb) file. If the storage group that contains the database has local continuous replication (LCR) enabled, the copy of the database file is moved as well.
|To move a database file, the database must be temporarily dismounted and then remounted. This is done automatically by the wizard, but the database is inaccessible to all users during the process.|
|You can also use the Exchange Management Shell to move database files. For more information, see Move-DatabasePath.|
This wizard page contains the following settings.
- Storage group name
This box displays the name of the storage group in which the selected database file is stored.
- Database name
This box displays the name of the database file that you have selected to move.
- Database file path
This box displays the location to which the selected database file will be moved. Click Browse to select a new location for the database file.
- Local continuous replication database file path
This box displays the location of the backup copy of the database file. Click Browse to select a new location for the backup database file. This box appears only if LCR is enabled for the storage group that contains the database file.
