Any way to synch all mailboxes under multiple exchange mailbox tasks at once?

Created: 21 Aug 2012 • Updated: 24 Aug 2012 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have 16 Exchange servers and 16 archiving tasks, if we want to sync everything it is a bit of pain to go to every single task properties and sync mailboxes.

Any way to synch all mailboxes under multiple exchange mailbox tasks at once? May be any script?

EV Version: 10.0.1

Many Thanks

I don't know of anyway to script it but you could use the Common Task Launch Pad to make it a little easier.

Click the SiteName in the Vault Admin console and then look under the Mailbox Management section for Synchronize Exchange Mailboxes.  It still isn't the easiest thing but its a bit better than expanding all the servers.

Not sure if it's a good idea to synch all (thousands) of your mailboxes at once? Your MAPI connections will go mental on the EV servers. This will also have a knock on affect with a workload on your CAS/MBX servers, concurrent connections issues etc.

Ideally you should schedule them to run at separate time for each EV/exchange server.

Just my two cents :-)

Hmmm tried that but doesn't allow us to select multiple Exchange tasks, have to do it one by one. We would prefer to find a way to synch all tasks on one go.

Sorry, didn't mean to imply you could do them all at once, you just have access to all the task in one place.
