Storage vMotion does not rename files?

A while back I posted that 5.0 U2 re-introduced the renaming behavior for VM file names. I was just informed by our excellent Support Team that unfortunately the release notes missed something crucial and Storage vMotion does not rename files by default. In order to get the renaming behavior you will have to set an advanced setting within vCenter.. This is how you do it: Go to “Administration” Click on “vCenter Server Settings” Click “Advanced Settings” Add the key “provisioning.relocate.enableRename” with value “true” and click...

Mailbox Move In Exchange 2013

The mailbox move process has been fine tuned in Exchange 2013 with the concept of “Batch Move”.   Similar to Exchange 2010, a single or multiple mailboxes can be moved using EAC. Mailbox move can be initiated from the move mailbox option next to a mailbox or by using the “Migration” tab in the “Recipients” node.  --> Please see the rest on the blog : http://www.howexchangeworks.com/2012/09/mailbox-move-in-exchange-2013.html

Un outil pour déplacer une Machine Virtuelle Hyper-V sans l'exporter

Hyper-V est un magnifique outil, avec lequel la performance et la stabilité sont au rendez-vous. Mais coté administration, les outils laissent un peu à désirer, et malgré qu'une bonne partie des opérations courantes que l'on pourrait espérer avoir sont disponibles, elles n'en sont pas moins difficiles d'usage. On peut espérer que tout cela sera amélioré avec Windows Server 2008 R2.Mais en attendant, les outils d'administration d'Hyper-V ne permettent que l'import d'une VM qui a au préalable déjà été exportée. Bien entendu, cela ne... [Lire la suite]

Mailbox Moves From Legacy Exchange To 2010 SP1 Is Very Slow…

 was running mailbox moves from Exchange 2003 SP2 to Exchange 2010 SP1 servers and noticed that the process was taking much longer than previous migrations. I have migrated from legacy Exchange to 2010 RTM and the time taken was much lesser. Looking more into it, I found that only 2 mailboxes are moved simultaneously to a 2010 SP1 database, though there were hundreds of mailbox move requests queued. This happens because of a change that has been made in 2010 SP1 to the Mailbox Replication Service (MRS) configuration file in the... [Lire la suite]

Obviating Outlook Client Restarts after Mailbox Moves

The History Historically, when an administrator moved an Exchange 2010 mailbox from one database to another, the user's Outlook client would present them with a message stating: The Exchange administrator has made a change that requires you quit and restart Outlook. Only after restarting Outlook would the user have access to their mailbox. To understand this behavior, it's helpful to understand what generates the dialog in Outlook and why Exchange 2010 triggers the message. Outlook caches three items about each Exchange...

Moving a Virtual Machine Between Hyper-V Hosts

A virtual machine (or VM) is an entity that is stored on one virtualization host, and that runs an instance of an operating system and uses resources that are presented to it by the virtualization software on that host. In Hyper-V, a VM uses a set of configuration files, and one or more virtual disks (in the format of VHD files). There may come a time when there is a need to move a VM or more between virtualization hosts. I will not go into a debate of why this needs to be done, however, I will just mention that the most common... [Lire la suite]

Mailbox Moves – 2003, 2007 & 2010 Exchange Servers…

I  have seen a number of questions in discussion forums regarding the tools to move mailboxes from different versions of Exchange to 2010 and what the pros & cons are. Below is a snapshot of the points to be considered while thinking about moving mailboxes. Exchange 2003 to 2010 You need to use “move request” cmdlets in 2010 shell to move the mailboxes. You can’t use 2003 System Manager. The mailbox move is offline, which means that the users can’t access the emails while it is moved. You can't move... [Lire la suite]

Transition From Exchange 2003 To 2010, Part 1 & 2…

As many organizations are thinking of skipping Exchange 2007 & moving directly to Exchange 2010 from 2003, I thought it is a good time to go through the process. The entire topic will be covered through multi part posts. I will base the entire series on my environment. Details of my network is listed below. Domain HEW.LOCAL (How Exchange Works) Domain Controller - 2003DC, running Windows 2003 R2 SP2 Exch 2003 Back End - 2003BE, Exchange 2003 SP2 running on Windows 2003 R2 SP2 Exch 2003 Front End - 2003FE, Exchange...
