Dismount databases

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Data Protection Manager

When a database that belongs to a protected storage group is dismounted, protection jobs for that database only will fail. Logs for that storage group will not be truncated. However, the longer that the database remains dismounted, the more likely it is that the log space on the Microsoft Exchange server will overflow, which will result in the dismount of the storage group on the Exchange server. If the database will not be needed, you should delete it.
