    I have exchange installed on Drive C: and the databases on Drive D:, when i
    reboot the server or restart exchange I have to manually mount the stores.
    Is this normal?

    stores, make sure the tick is checked to mount on startup

  3. Hi Danny,

    Thanks for your post and thank Grey for the answer.

    Just as Grey mentioned, please check if you have checked on the option ¡°Do
    not mount this store at start-up¡±. To check this, open the ESM, expand
    servers -> first storage group. Right click the on the mailbox store or
    public folder store, select properties, on the database tab, make sure the
    option ¡°Do not mount this store at start-up¡± is not checked.

    If this is not your case, please help me collect the following information:

    1. Which store do you cannot mount? The mailbox store or public folder

    2. Are there any event logs related to this issue? If you do not mind,
    please save the application event logs in .evt format and send it to me. My
    email address is .

    3. Disable any anti-virus software on the SBS server, are there any changes?
    Moreover, to avoid any affect from third party software, please perform a
    clean boot, and then check if there is any change.

    To perform a clean boot, follow the steps below:

    A. Click Start, click Run, type "msconfig" (without the quotation marks) and
    click OK.
    B. Select "Selective Startup" and remove the check box for "Load Startup
    C. On the "Services" tab, click Enable All.
    D. Check "Hide all Microsoft Services", click Disable All and clear "Hide
    all Microsoft Services".
    E. Click the OK button and then Click Yes to restart your computer.
    F. Try again.

    4. If you manually mount the store, will you get success? If not, what is
    the exact error message?

    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to let me know. I am glad
    to be of assistance.

    Best regards,

    Jerry Zhao (MSFT)
