Moving Vault Store Partitions to free up space on EV Server 7.5 SP3...
Ladies and Gents,
this is probably an old chestnut. Enterprise Vault 7.5 SP3.
I'm about to run out of disk storage space, despite best efforts to avoid the situation...
I've read through this article:
...which is nicely written, but wanting to be certain that I've both understood the article and that the move I'm considering is actually feasable, I need advice.
I need some options. My EV Servers disk drive arrays are almost full. When they fill up in a few days, my Exchange environment will then run out of space and there'll wailing and despair all around, not to mention an EV admin (me) being kicked.
We will be replacing the current EV server and going to a more powerful server with some SAN storage, very soon. However, that won't happen soon enough to get me out of the current mess. We'll also be upgrading through the versions from 7.5 SP3 to Version 10.x
The current EV Servers' directly attached drive arrays are about to become completely full. I've read the aforementioned article and hope that I can move the partitions to another server (not an Enterprise Vault Server), yet keep them 'available via EV for the users' untill we can effect a migration to the planned new server.
Can this work ? Does anyone have a better idea? I desperately need to make some room to keep the current box running until its replacement is ready.
All suggestions valued and appreciated.
Thanks in advance
