EV 8/9 Compliance and Discovery Accelerator question

Created: 11 Sep 2012 • Updated: 11 Sep 2012 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am new here and hope I have the right forum. My question is, coming from 7.5 (SP6) to version 8 or 9, are the compliance and discovery accelerators required as part of the installation and running of EV? I initially do not want to add features until I know my environment is stable. Thanks all.

The issue you will find is that the version of CA and DA must be equal to or higher than the version of EV.

You can refer to the following for more information:

Supported upgrade paths for Enterprise Vault (EV), Compliance Accelerator (CA), Discovery Accelerator (DA) and Discovery Collector (DC).

If you do not currently use either Accelerator software, then no, they are NOT required as part of the installation and running of EV.
