Enterprise Vault File System and Sharepoint Archiving

Scenario: -
We implemented EV for Exchange Archiving and are pretty happy with it so far. We have a File Server for which the backup window is huge and hence we are thinking of implementing EV for FS also.
Ultimately, we have also thought of migrating the files to the sharepoint server.

I have a few queries in this regard: -
1. What should i perform first? 
a. Migration to Sharepoint and Archive sharepoint; or
b. Archive File Server first and then migration
2. In the second scenario, i have a couple of more questions: - 
a. Once we have archived the File server, is there a procedure to migrate the shortcuts to sharepoint.? If yes, HOW?
b. Do I need to have Licenses for both FS and SPS in this case?

Please HELP !

I would go with the migration to sharepoint and then archive sharepoint. I'm not aware of a solution to transfer shortcuts from FSA to Sharepoint Cheers Michel

Management wants to archive first

I agree with you and morevover, we are planning to use a 3rd party tool to migrate the server which will keep the security settings of the files intact.

But the management is not agreeing to this and is not willing to migrate first. They are more willing to reduce the backup window for the file server and then ones the UAT is complete, will migrate...

It will be EV 8.0

I also heard that there are internal tools in EV that can make a FS Shortcut be migrated / pointed to an SPS...

Please advise as your caluable inputs will make our lives a lot simpler...

Thanks in advance

There are no internal tools

There are no internal tools in EV that can point FSA shortcuts to SPS - where did you hear this that there was?

As the above, migrate to SPS, then archive from there.


What if File Server is archived first?

 Hello All,

Thanks a lot for you valuable time that you spared for to rely / post to this thread...

I just have this last query. 

What if we go by the file server archiving first and then later decide to migrate to SPS?

What is it that we need to be prepare with or what are the tasks to be performed?

Again, thanks in advance...

You would need to un-archive

You would need to un-archive (recall) the files you want to archive into sharepoint. Cheers

What is the procedure to recall

Hello All,

And what is the procedure to recall and do we have any option like: -

a. Leave a copy on the archive
b. Delete the copy from Archive
c. Keep on both the server and the archive...

Thanks and Regards,

Gauravaditya

a) and c) will work,

a) and c) will work, respectively are the same. b) won't work, as delete on recall is no longer supported for EV8, and is depreciated in 2007. You can recall the files either by FSAUtility (see Utilities.pdf Documentation), or by using an "old" virusscanner which recalls the files, or by using file copy, which recalls the files. Cheers

 So, does it mean that the

 So, does it mean that the space will be occupied in the storage until we delete that archive manually / the Vault completely?

Yes, I think so

Yes, I think so

I would also recommend if you could start another forum for this.
