Hi, I'm using EV10 SP3. Before we roll out EV to all users, I am looking at ways to ease the load on the EV servers. One item on my list is Virtual Vault which could cause delays (as 2000 mailboxes wanting to sync at the same time, even with threshholds could take ages). Someone mentioned enabling users for Virtual Vault to take advantage of preemptive caching, so when they get enabled for archiving the VC does not have to build off the server as the data is already there, but I can see how this can work.
In my mind, the process is: Users join a provision group which has archiving disabled. They have a policy applied which sets archive items older than X days and enable VC and VV. At this stage nothing happens, it's only when they get enabled that they get the hidden messages, policy info, preemptive cache details, etc downloaded to their Outlook and an archive created. At that stage, archiving will then run during the next window, and preemptive can then work. So if someone is in a provisiong group for days, nothing will happen until they are actually enabled. And say you enable someone in the morning, they could get a few hours worth or preemptive caching before the archiving run happens at night.
Is that correct? Does that make sense?
