Move Exchange 2016 database to another drive

0 999

After renaming the Exchange 2016 database, we like to move Exchange 2016 database to another drive. We can only move Exchange 2016 database path to another drive with PowerShell. It’s not possible to do it in the Exchange Admin Center. In this article, you will learn how to move Exchange 2016 database to another drive.

Use Get-MailboxDatase to check DB

Get-MailboxDatabase | Format-List Name, EdbFilePath, LogFolderPath
[PS] C:\>Get-MailboxDatabase | Format-List Name, EdbFilePath, LogFolderPath
Creating a new session for implicit remoting of "Get-MailboxDatabase" command...


Name          : MBDBSYS
EdbFilePath   : C:\MBX\MBSYS\MBSYS.EDB
LogFolderPath : C:\MBX\MBSYS\Logs

Name          : MBDB01
EdbFilePath   : C:\MBX\MBDB01\MBDB01.edb
LogFolderPath : C:\MBX\MBDB01\LOGS

Name          : MBDB02
EdbFilePath   : C:\MBX\MBDB02\MBDB02.EDB
LogFolderPath : C:\MBX\MBDB02\LOGS

Name          : MBDBSYS02
EdbFilePath   : C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Mailbox\Mailbox Database 0554156675\Mailbox Database
                0554156675.edb
LogFolderPath : C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Mailbox\Mailbox Database 0554156675

Name          : MBDB03
EdbFilePath   : C:\MBX\MBDB03\MBDB03.edb
LogFolderPath : C:\MBX\MBDB03\LOGS

Name          : MBDBDEMO
EdbFilePath   : C:\MBX\MBDBDEMO\MBDBDEMO.edb
LogFolderPath : C:\MBX\MBDBDEMO\LOGS

According to the above image has changed the name but the physical path is still not and the name is still the same.

The name of the database has been changed to MBDBSYS02. Read the article on how to rename an Exchange 2016 database. The .edb file (database) and the log folder still have a unique generated name. I will configure the name when moving both the database and the log folder to another drive. Example D:\MBX\MBDBSYS02

Move Exchange 2016 Database To Another Drive

Example C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Mailbox\Mailbox Database 0554156675

We are going to make use of the Move-DatabasePath cmdlet. The EdbFilePath parameter specifies a new file path for the database. All current database files are moved to this location. The LogFolderPath parameter specifies the folder where log files are stored. After running the command, confirm both times with Y and press Enter.

Move-DatabasePath "MBDBSYS02" -EdbFilePath "D:\MBX\MBDBSYS02\MBDBSYS02.edb" -LogFolderPath "D:\MBX\MBDBSYS02\LOGS"
[PS] C:\>Move-DatabasePath "MBDBSYS02" -EdbFilePath "D:\MBX\MBDBSYS02\MBDBSYS02.edb" -LogFolderPath "D:\MBX\MBDBSYS02\LO
GS"
