Already a customer have the right layout for SME (databaases and logs in separately luns)
Environment is Exchange 2010 with DAG and circular logging
I install SME and need run configuration wizard.
Although DB and log are in right place, exists a dismount and mount operation for all DB?
Circular logging is also disabled?
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

If I have a 2 Server DAG, should i put both Server Database LUNs in one volume, and the Log LUNs in another volume, for best Dedup without running into a potential 'busy' snapshot copy problem (discribed in section 5.2 on TR-3824). How is your Lun to Volume layout, if you dont mind me asking?
For SQL I have only 1:1 volume to LUN ratio (user database, system database, snapinfo, logs, & temp) per Server.
NetApp recommends separating database and transaction logs from different servers into separate volumes to prevent a potential "busy" Snapshot copy problem. Because there are separate volumes for each server, there is no need for concern regarding Snapshot schedules overlapping each other for different servers.
