Microsoft NAS 2003 Feature Pack, A01

The Windows Storage Server 2003 Feature Pack for Dell PowerVault NAS
Systems enables Network Attached Storage support for Exchange Server
2003 systems.

=====================


Feature Pack Overview


=====================



The Feature Pack allows Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 databases and
transaction logs to be stored on a network attached storage (NAS)
device running Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003. A single Windows
Storage Server computer running the Feature Pack can host the
databases and transaction logs of up to two Exchange servers and up to
fifteen hundred Exchange mailboxes.

The Feature Pack installs new components on both the Windows Storage
Server computer and Exchange Server 2003. These components provide
tools and services that allow Exchange databases and transaction logs
to be moved to a Windows Storage Server computer. They perform the
necessary configuration updates to give Exchange Server 2003 access to
the remotely stored files.



Exchange database tools and applications that are currently being used
by an organization can still be used in conjunction with the Feature
Pack within the limitations of the Feature Pack.



The Feature Pack will only run on NAS systems running the Microsoft
Windows Storage Server 2003 operating system.
