‘WMI exception occurred on server’

By | April 14, 2019

When running Move-DatabasePath in Exchange the following error shows up ‘WMI exception occurred on server’. This is caused when the database has too many log files. The fix is to run a backup, time permitting. If time is limited:

  1. Enable circular logging on the database to be moved
  2. Dismount and Mount the database (this will start the log file cleanup)
