What are pros and cons Can we add single physical DFS jumphost as a target on two different EV servers? This is to distribute workload Can we add single file server with Multiple EV Servers? (either single directory or different directory database)

Hi mbm1,


you want to have 2 sites when you want to logically seperate the offices.

Otherwise activate Archiving for specific paths and write to a nearby partition (activate dedup within Vault Store, not across all)

The EV databases are normally located only on one resource (or SQL Cluster), if you want to have it seperatly on two SQL Servers which are not in a cluster you might consider to create a site for it. Remember there are no connections between the EV servers in this case. They are seperate systems. You will have to maintain both.

Dont use mutliple EV servers for the same path this will most likely not turn out that good.

I did not try EV together with DFS so I cannot tell you alot about this.

I hope this helped
