Politics: where absolutely anything is OK as long as the right team does it.

Why I like Windows stuff...

So I'm running an Exchange Server at home for various reasons. Ran out of space on the disk I was keeping the Exchange database on.

Did a bit of research, found out that moving the location of the data stores consists of:

Right-click, Properties
Database tab.
Set the new location with a "Browse" button
Click "Apply"

Exchange asks if you're sure, Dave, then dismounts the database, copies the files, and remounts it. Done. Took two minutes.

(Setting up Outlook Web Access, including generating the certificate, took fifteen minutes)

I know - I'm buried in WindowsWorld, so that's what I know. Maybe that's the state of the art across the board. All I know is I'm happy it's not like it was (everywhere) five years ago. :)
