Exporting EV archive to .PST for large Exchange mailbox user ?

Hi All,

I'm in the process of exporting around 18+ TB of archived email to .PST files from my Enterprise Vault Version: 11.0.1.3683 so I've got some question that I need to clarify:

  1. Does it consumes the EV server CPU/RAM/Storage or the SQL Server CPU/RAM/Storage or both ?
  2. Does the large archived mailbox that is larger than 20 GB in size can be exported as single .PST? or it will failed given there is a note The size of new PST files will be limited to 20480 MB during the export process.

That's all that I can think of so far in my export process.

Thanks,

JS

@CConsult Thanks for the reply,

However, this server is already big enough in terms of the VM: 4x vCPU & 16 GB vRAM

But there are about 100-200 of archived Exchange mailboxes that is already larger than 25 GB in my Exchange server as well as the EV server.

What do I do about them ?

there is an option to split PST

"maximum PST size" when you start the Export Wizard

I wouldn't go over 2 Gb personally.

@Rob_Wilcox1, Yes, but somehow if there is a mailbox with 57 GB archived size, do I just split them into 29x 2 GB .PST files ?

John, you can of course, do whatever you and the users want.

 

But, a 57 Gb PST file is far more likely to get corrupted.. will take a long time to re-export (when it gets corrupted, or lost).. will actually be a lot more than 57 Gb...

 

and so on.
