How do I switch to the LCR copy of a database?

A. If you need to switch to the LCR copy of an Exchange 2007 database and logs, make sure the Store is dismounted, then switch to the LCR via the command below, then mount the Store, which will now point to the LCR location.

Restore-StorageGroupCopy -Identity “First Storage Group” -ReplaceLocations

Here's a sample execution:

Restore-StorageGroupCopy -Identity "first storage group" -ReplaceLocations
