Exchange 2016: Installation and Configuration

Configuration: move the default database

Now that the database is renamed, let’s see how to move it. By default, the database is created in the Exchange installation folder. At the beginning of this tutorial, in the prerequisites, the server has been configured with 3 disks / partitions, one for the databases and the other for the logs.

1. On the disks, create at the root a folder MBX01 (base name).

2. Open the Exchange Management Shell and enter the following command to adapt based on your configuration:

Move-Databasepath MBX01 -EdbFilePath D:\MBX01\MBX01.edb -LogFolderPath L:\MBX01

6. In the ECP, it is also possible to check the path 1 to the base in the properties.
