  • if you want quick resolution

    dismount the database

    check the health of the database

    if it is in clean shutdown, move the log files  (E00.log, E00xxxxxxx.log,res1.log and res2.log) and check point file (E00.chk) to another location

    mount the database and u will see the log file generation from e0000001.log.

  • the easiest way doing this task is

    dismounting all the databaes in the storage group

    then navigate to log folder directory

    rename the old logs folder to  something like   "SG4logs.old" then mount all databases. you can moved the old logs later

    this way you will avoid downtime while logs are beeing moved.

     

    NOw as you have already started the process with the assistant i would recomend you to wait. unless the process is not responding

    open the corrosponding process in taskmgr and see I/O if the bytes are constant.
