Move logs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!​​,

    Exchange 2003 SP2.
    I move the logs to another drive, as I do?, I create the directory with the same permissions or create your own Exchange?

    any recommendations before moving the logs?
    Thanks

  • 1. It's in that KB above.

    "You can move the log files and database files to any folder that you want to create. When you move logs and database files, you may want to create the Exchsrvr\Mdbdata file structure for consistency reasons, but you are not obligated to do so.

    You must grant the following default permissions to the new Mdbdata folder that contains the log files and database files:

    • Administrators: Full Control
    • Authenticated Users: Read and Execute, List Folder Contents, Read
    • Creator Owner: None
    • Server Operators: Modify, Read and Execute, List Folder Contents, Read, Write
    • System: Full Control"

    2. It would be nice to backup Exchange before, always a good idea.

  • When moving, you share the directory and set the permissions or should I perform that function.
