Synchronizing several archives at once (EV Powershell, SQL flag)?

Hello.

We are running EV11.0.1 on an environment of  26 EV servers.

With a number of more than 80.000 archives we are in need of some "automatism" for several tasks.

One thing is that many Mailboxarchives have more than 4000 missing items in their indexes (on a daily report). This can be easily fixed by synchronize them via the VAC. But doing this one-by-one for several hundreds of archives is becoming a little impractical and our office-monkey is on annual leave.Smiley Wink

I can get a list of all affected archives easily with SQL, but is there a way (EV Powershell?) to start a rebuild for all archives mentioned e.g. in a textfile ?

Maybe this can be done via SQL as well (setting a flag on an specific archive) ?

Like to see your suggestions.

 

rgds,

SK

Re: Synchronizing several archives at once (EV Powershell, SQL flag)?

There is not a way to rebuild via PowerShell from a text file, but you don't need to do them one-by-one either. You can follow these steps:

1) In the VAC, right-click Indexing node and choose "Manage indexes..."
2) Choose Rebuild option and click Next past the intro page
3) Click "Add" > "Index Volume..."
4) In the left pane, you can edit the attributes to show only index volumes with missing items.
5) You can use normal Windows multi-select actions (CTRL-click, Shift-click, CTRL-A) to add index volumes to the Rebuild job.
6) Click "Next" through the rest of the wizard and create the Rebuild task, which will process all the index volumes you selected.

This is not as nice as automating the whole thing would be, but it's a lot better than the one-by-one approach you describe. Your office monkey should be able to complete these steps in under two minutes.
