Hi 

 

I have installed an Exchange Server - 2016, just wanted to know if I can create two databases in it and keep both of them mounted.... as of now I have to dismount one database to mount the other...

 

There is no DAG deployed as of now...

 

Thanks

Per articles, Exchange 2016 standard let’s you mount up to 5 databases whilst Enterprise let’s you mount up to 100.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/plan-and-deploy/deployment-ref/editions-and-versions?view=...

https://practical365.com/exchange-server/exchange-2016-server-editions-and-licenses/

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris

The issue that I am facing is that once I activate the other database named db02 it shows as mounted in the Gui however in powershell it shows it is dismounted....

 

As of now I am using trial version of Exchange .. am I supposed to assign a license first to create multiple database in Exchange 2016..?

 

Thanks

Solution
AFAIK, you should be able to do at least 5 as stated in this article -

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/plan-and-deploy/post-installation-tasks/enter-product-key?...

I would go through this article to see if it corresponds to why you are getting this -

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.stellarinfo.com/blog/top-10-exchange-database-mounting-issues/amp...

I would personally raise to support who would need to take a look into the issue further (I.e. look at the logs and run through steps)

Best, Chris

thanks for your help Chris.... the issue that I was facing was because of server performance.... I got it sorted ...
