I have a site which has been upgraded from EV 7, to EV 8 to EV 9.
We have some 30TB of non SIS data in historical Vault Stores, in the Upgrade Group.
Can I apply SIS to this historical data?
I have reserached the docs, and there is sort of a hint that you can, but no defnitive statement.
The key to this seems to be Moving Archives, about which the admin guide states :-
Moving a vault store to a different vault store group In most cases you cannot move a vault store to a different vault store group. You can move a vault store to a different vault store group only if all of the following circumstances apply: ■ You previously upgraded to Enterprise Vault 8.0. ■ The vault store is one that Enterprise Vault upgraded to Enterprise Vault 8.0, or one that you created in the Default Upgrade Group. ■ The vault store's sharing level is "No sharing" and has never been changed. Note that when you move a vault store, it retains the sharing level "No sharing".
So I read this as offering a "One Time" opportunity after an upgrade, to create a new vault store, with Sharing Enabled, and move the upgraded Vault stores into the new group, and then enable sharing.
What is not clear is whether EV will now somehow re-process these vault stores to implement the SIS, and populate the fingerprint databaser for ALL the existing data, or ONLY for new data added after enabling Sharing.
If it does re-process, how intensive a process is this, how long might it take per TB of data, is the process manageable (eg can one have it run only during certain window time periods)
Other posts in this forum seem to suggest that this has been done.
I would appreciate any feedback on this. Has anyone successfully applied SIS retrospectively to existing, pre upgrade data.
