    Ex 2000 Installation

    Hi,

    Can anyone give me some straight forward advice on the installation of Exchange 2000 on W2K server (SP4) - particularly the size of partition I should install Exchange's working files into?

    I have a 36GB mirror available for the database and transaction logs and want to place the actual Exchange installation on a separate volume within my 36GB Raid 5 structure.

    TIA,

    There are many things to consider. I doubt that anyone can give you a canned answer with so little detail. You ought to start here: Exchange 2000 Server. There's lots of reading material.

    Hi Joe and thanks for replying...

    I've think I've just about read all the articles on Exchange that Microsoft have ever published (inc the one you've suggested), but none of them can give a definitive answer on the disk space required for the actual installation of the Exchange program software (i.e. not the databases or Transactions Logs).

    Any historical experience you, or anyone else, have on this matter would be appreciated?

    Cheers,

    Hi Ade,
    Look here: System Requirements for Exchange 2000 Server in the disk space section. It seems pretty definitive.

    Thanks for that - I should have looked in the obvious place first!

    Cheers,
