You just use the Indexing Tools in EV 10... that allows you to do them in bulk, right?

Hello DKumar,

In Enterprise Vault 10, you can select several index volumes and perform a upgrade to 64 bits. Normally, you can perform these tasks from the Enterprise Vault Admin Console, right click over Indexing > Manage Indexes. Here is a technote with more details:

I hope this helps.

Yes, but using the indexing tool if i select more then , the index engine is getting overloaded , so is there any other way where we can do it?

DKumar,

The Enterprise Vault indexing engine has a maxium number of concurrent operations setting. By default is 30; thus, if you add 200 index volumes for the upgrade (i.e. 200 subtasks), only 30 will be running at the time, so the Enterprise Vault server will not be overloaded. Just make sure you have the best practices in place (virtual memory, tunning, network settings etc):

Also, the only way to upgrade indexes to 64 bits is using the indexing tool.

You could consider scheduling them for out of hours...

can i use "indexcheck" ? Even if this does not have upgrade option, can i use rebuilt option? Even rebuilt will convert the index from 32 to 64-bit

Rebuilding the index will add more load in the Enterprise Vault server, since it would pull every single item from the storage to index it again. Index Check is not an option to upgrade indexes.
