The next screen is where the fun begin. We are going to be prompted for the storage group where we want to store our mailbox-enabled recipients Exchange data. Depending on your version of Exchange, you might not have multiple storage groups to choose from. Only Exchange Enterprise edition supports creating multiple storage groups (you can create four storage groups per server) with each server capable of storing five stores (databases) per storage group. Exchange Standard edition only supports one storage group with five stores as well. Look for an upcoming article in this series where we will go into detail on Storage Groups and stores and the issues involved in planning, creating, and managing them in Exchange 2000.
