Troubleshooter: Naming Exchange 2000 Databases

When naming Exchange 2000 database files, what are the restrictions?

Database names are limited to 64 characters, and they can't contain forward slashes (/) or backslashes (\), the equal sign, or semicolons; all other printable characters are legal. The same restrictions apply to storage group names.
