You want to troubleshoot or monitor an index change location task


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.


To troubleshoot or monitor the progress of a running Change Location task, use Dtrace to monitor the following processes:


  • EVIndexAdminService.exe
  • EVIndexVolumesProcessor.exe (for 64-bit volumes)
  • IndexBroker.exe (for 32-bit volumes)
  • IndexServer.exe (for 32-bit volumes)
