Failed to connect to target server "ExchangeServer". Error: WMI exception occurred on server 'ExchangeServer.domain.local': Quota violation
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (Mailbox Database 0529333988:DatabaseIdParameter) [Move-DatabasePath],
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : 7897D20B,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConfigurationTasks.MoveDatabasePath
After doing some research I discovered that this only occurs when attempting to move a ridiculously large quantity of log files.
To resolve this problem you must purge the transaction logs first before performing the operation. This can be done in 3 ways::
- Perform a Full Backup of the Server which in effect will purge the logs. This can be performed by using Windows Server Backup or another product.
- Enable Circular Logging, dismount/remount the database, then Re-enable Circular Logging.
- Manually delete the log files using windows explorer (SHIFT + DELETE). Do not perform this procedure without checking first that all log files have been played into the database, doing so could result in loss of data.
