Today let’s discuss changing the Mailbox Database Path in Exchange Server 2007, 2010 & 2013
While creating a new mailbox database with the Exchange 2010 Management Console database and log paths are automatically populated.
This path comes from the value of the DataPath attribute on the Exchange Server object.
This attribute is not exposed to modification via the Set-ExchangeServer cmdlet.
However like all attributes it is stored in Active Directory. In this case it is the msExchDataPath attribute on the Exchange Server object, viewable in ADSIEdit.msc.
Start – Run – Adsiedit.msc – enter
In Adsieidt – Action – Connect to – in the below popup box high light Configuration as shown below
Expand the Configuration Container to Server as shown below – right click properties on the server and highlight msExchDataPath
And Click and Edit and Change the Path.
Note: Now we can check the path, recommended to verify pre changing and post changing the path.
The above steps are applicable for Changing the Log folder Path as well.
