Incorrect Information About Maximum Number Of Storage Groups Allowed Pages 50 and 147 state that "Each Exchange server can have up to 16 storage groups, and each storage group can have up to 6 databases." Although the Extensible Storage Engine (ESE) code allows 16 storage groups, Exchange 2000 Server only allows a maximum of 4 storage groups containing a maximum of 5 databases for each storage group. This limit is enforced inside the Exchange System Manager snap-in, so administrators cannot create more storage groups than the system allows. For more information, please read the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:Q251123: Maximum Number of Storage Groups in Exchange 2000 for Database Capacity Planning

Backing Up Exchange Server M Drive Not Recommended On page 213, the first bulleted item in step 4 reads: "To back up Exchange and Windows 2000 settings, select all hard disk drives where Windows 2000 and Exchange 2000 Server are installed. Normally, this means backing up the root drive C: and the special partition for Exchange Server, M:Exchange." Microsoft does not recommend backing up drive M with file-level backup software.Microsoft Press is committed to providing informative and accurate books.
