Can any one help me with the steps on how to purge old data to minimize the DB size ? in symantec Enterprise Vault 11.0
currently performing in test environment.
Thanks for help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I don't think you have EV 11... maybe 10?
You can ...
a/ delete items manually, or using search.asp, and add them to a basket then delete the items
b/ set a low retention category period on them, and then use storage expiry
They're just a few options.
I assume you have Enterprise Vault 10. As far as I know, EV11 is not available (yet).
There is an extensive technote on SQL maintenance for EV databases. Check this: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH74666
In addition, you do NOT purge data from EV databases. The only TABLE I know can be purged (to be recreated by provisioning) is the ExchangeMailboxEntry table in the Directory database. The remaining databases will be maintained using the above mentioned document. If you configure Enterprise Vault to do (for instance) storage expiry on archived items, EV will take care of removing entries from the databases affected. When that is done during normal business, your maintenance plan will take care of managing the databases.
You can do some housekeeping on the monitoring database (http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH72170) and the audit database (if auditing is enabled) (document to be found.... )
If this does not answer your question, can you be more specific in what you see, want, and expect?
If you are satisfied with one of the answers, can you mark that as solution? This way, others know where to look for answers, and people will not open the question to provide an answer.....
Thanks, and good luck!
