I know how to move all INDEX data and change SQL entries for EV organization to point to new INDEX server. My question is, which roles, components must (are necessary) I install when I do a new installation. Shall I prepare a new EV server as for usual (including Outlook and MAPI profile) and just not configure archiving tasks?
Thanks' for answers...
Mailbox archiving, PST import, PF archiving
Win2008R2 STD on vSphere 5.5., 8vCPU, 16GB RAM, index disk as RAW mapping on Clariion CX4, EMC Centera GE edition
2 x 2007 SP3 CCR
approx 7000, not all curently enabled for archiving.
If I add another EV server, only remaning users will be indexed with new one.
I have same tought... But:
1. manually moving about a half of users indexes one by one is painful and slow
2. it happens regulary that users are moved between SG and of course servers. I will have a mess in no time.
3. think on future, upgradnig to Exch 2013 and DAGs... There will be even greater mess with DAG archiving.
So the best way for me is to separate indexes to dedicated server... Only question now I have is either I prepare a new server for indexing and move all indexes to it or simply use a new server for archiving and provisioning tasks and the old one just downgrade for indexing. Since I use aliases for EV site and EV organization I think that there will be no significant impact if I use a new server for archiving and retriving. Should I also use it for searching?
