possible to assign certain Index Locations to certain Vault Stores?

Hello,

let's have the following configuration:

- 1 EV server, 2 Vault Stores

- VS01 is , for example, for SMTP archiving

- VS02 is for mailbox archiving

Is it possible to specify somehow that all archives in VS02 will automatically use only index locations index5 - index8, while archives in VS01 will be assigned to index1 - index4 locations?

The reason comes from different requirements/scheduling for backups of both vault stores and their corresponding index locations.

I see that I can always later move index volumes manually, I am curious about automatic assignment.

Regards

Michal

Hello Michal,

Indexing is server specific, not archive specific.

You can move indexes around, but any new index (because the first index is full. or for a newly created archive), will be autodistributed again accross the 8 locations.

It might be best to backup the full indexlocation during, or shortly after, vault store backup.

Nope. You can't control the distribution of index volumes within a given index location.
