moving databases

when i use the "optomizer" program and agree to the 
recomendations, the program fails to move the databases. 
It will attempt to, and then after awhile it just stops 

When i try to move the databases manually and then change 
the data paths, i get an error that says the data is 
already moved and it fails to change the paths...

any suggestions??

Hi Tim,

Do the databases themselves actually move?  Does the server hang trying to
stop services?  Look in the registry at
ParametersPrivate\DB Path
ParametersPublic\DB Path
ParametersSystem\Working Directory and DB Log Path

This tells you where the databases, logfiles, and .chk file are supposed to
be located.  I've never tried it but I think you can move them manually and
then modify these registry keys to reflect the changes

Exchange 5.5 database is becoming too large
Hi, we have a server with Windows NT 4.0 SBS and Exchange Server 5.5. The server has a 3 Disks Raid 5 array. The array is divided in 6 partitions of about 6 GB (exept drive C that is 2 GB) Exchange is installed in drive D. Our exchange Database is now growed and is, at the moment about 5 GB.

It could be safe to work with partition magic in order to join some drives? Any other ideas? Please help us!!!! M...

can I make a empty priv1.edb database in Ech 2003 ??
need help new can I make a empty priv1.edb database in Ech 2003 ?? THANKS Sure you "can", but the question is why? If you want to create a new empty database, then you would dismount the Mailbox store, then delete, move or rename the existing files. Next, simply re-mount the Mailbox store and you will be presented with a message box indicating that new blank databases will be created and do you want to proceed. That's really all there is to it. If you have any mail in the old databases, I'd seriously recommend that you either rename or move them instead of dele...

Database Query #4
I have created a data table in a worksheet and named it “data”. Then I created a separate worksheet, in the same workbook, and created a database query of the data table, by using Data…Import External Data…New Database Query…Excel Files* and defining the database name by browsing to the same workbook. The query worked fine. However, when I moved the workbook (which included the data source) to a different folder and tried to refresh the database query, I got the following error message: “[Microsoft] [ODBC Excel Driver] The Microsoft Jet database engine could not find the object ‘data’...

Resolution to CRM 1.2 database export failed error during 1.2 to 3.0 upgrade
After struggling with this error working with MS Support and receiving no resolution, we were able to solve the problem through KB article 916924 (see below). Why MS Support did not point us to this in the first place is quite frustrating, so hopefully this will help others! CAUSE Cause 1 This problem occurs because there are saved queries in the Microsoft CRM 1.2 databases that are malformed. This problem usually occurs because a third-party product is not completely removed from the Microsoft CRM databases before you upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0. Cause 2 This problem occurs if th...
