Move Indexes

Greetings all. 

I am running EV 11 CHF5.  I have eleven EV servers in the site and one server for DA.  We have been using EV since 6.x I believe.  All EV servers have the storage and index services running.  I recently created a new archive (for SMTP archiving) in an existing vault store.  The existing vault store now has two archives, the journal archive and the new SMTP archive.  I would like to move the indexes for the new SMTP archive to the server with the SMTP archiving task.  Is there a way to move the indexes without creating an index group? 

Thanks!

Re: Move Indexes

Select the specific archive, go to Index Volumes, select Manage Indexes and there you will find the wizard to "Change Location".  Essentially you need to put it in back-up mode, copy to the new location and then change the pointers in SQL to look for the new location.  See the below excerpt.

About the Change Location wizard

The Change Location wizard lets you move an archive's index volumes from one physical location to another.

Change location tasks do not copy the index volumes from the source location to the target. You must copy the files manually, and use the Change Location wizard to make the necessary changes in Enterprise Vault.

When you run the Change Location wizard, you must indicate whether or not you have already copied the archive's index volumes from the source location to the target location.

If you choose to copy the index volumes before you run the wizard, you must first set the index volumes offline, then copy the files. When you run the wizard and indicate that you have already copied the files, it creates a change location task which checks the index volumes are offline then completes the configuration of the new location.

If you choose to copy the index volumes after you run the Change Location wizard, it creates a change location task which sets the index volumes offline then pauses while you copy the files. When you have copied the files, you can use the Monitor Indexing Tasks page to indicate that you have copied the files for the relevant change location task. The task then completes the configuration of the new location.
