Enterprise Vault partition rollover is something that many people setup, but with small lab environments it isn't something that is always that easy to test. So, the question I sometimes hear is:

"What events are logged for partition rollover"?

Well the answer is as follows:

Firstly if there are no ready partitions, Storage File Watch will log:

Log Name: Symantec Enterprise Vault
Source: Enterprise Vault
Date: 5/6/2013 13:46:17 PM
Event ID: 7027
Task Category: Storage File Watch
Level: Warning
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: EV1A.EV.LOCAL
Description:
Partition rollover could not find any ready partitions for VaultStore Email of Storage service 1CFE6FC145153B74B8DEF36D35524084E1e10230evsite.

Note
All Partitions in of vaultStore Email will be closed. Use VAC to create a new open partition or open an existing partition.

The nicer one though is the one which is logged when rollover happens, it's the one you want to see!
