We are re-organizing our mailstores to more reasonable sizes and I have a few questions. Main question being once I create my secondary storage group and add the additional mailstores is the only thing I need to do from the MPS side is add these new stores
in resource manager?
Also if I move users to these other mailstores is there any work needed on the MPS side.

HI yes once you add the mailstores you need to add them into the resource manager and MPS will start using it depending on your config it will fill the other stores first though.
IF you start moving mailbox's around it depends on how you do it but basically if you don't move the mailbox's with MPS and you use exchange then you will need to probably restamp the attributes of the user and also update the resourcemanagement database
to reflect the new location and usage etc.
There are different methods you can use so depends how you choose to do it,

How would you go about moving the mailboxes with MPS? Or what is the most efficient way to do this if Im moving large amounts of users?
I see you can use scripts to move users. Is this what you mean by using MPS?

Hi Yes using scripts like that one is what i mean, so you can try using the mps scripts or you write your own powershell ones to do the exchange move, the write a script to update the resource tables in SQL to reflects the resource changes and then get MPS
to restamp the users with all required attributes.
That is why MPS methods are preferred and easier. Really depneds on your coding ability, time and knowledge of MPS and respourcemanagement.
