Creation of user's mailbox in specific database RRS feed

  • Question

  • After Exchange 2010 installation, default mailbox database is created.

    I created new one on a different drive.

    How can I specify which mailboxes will be using which databases?

  • You tell Exchange which database to use during the creation of the user.

    If you don't tell Exchange which database to use, then it has a load balancing aglorithm which it uses to balance the mailboxes across the databases.
