Exchange 2013 – Why Information Store needs Restarting after Adding a New Database

May 18, 2013

On previous versions of Exchange, the Information Store service (store.exe) takes up pretty much all of the RAM available by default on the server. However in Exchange 2013 its much better with memory management in the fact that it only allocates the amount of RAM needed for the databases that exist on the server. The downside of this is that when you add a new database to the server, it doesn’t have enough RAM to make that database work. Therefore to mount the new database the Information Store needs to be rebooted.

This was present in RTM however you were not notified. In Cumulative Update 1 (CU1) you are.
