Question about Archive task after mailbox move

Created: 04 Mar 2013 • Updated: 04 Mar 2013 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We currently are using Exchange 2007 and Enterprise Vault 9.0.3.  We are using Virtual Vault for users to drag and drop items into their archive but we also have an age based policy to archive messages older than 360 days.  We also Journal all mailboxes to a seperate vault store group.

We are building out a new Exchange 2010 environment and plan to use Enterprise Vault in the same manner.  My question is this, do I need to worry about mailbox mapping back to the coorect vault store when I move a mailbox from server to server.  For example, user 1 is on mailbox server 5 (Exchange 2007) and EV server 5 has an archive task for mbx server 5 and points to vault store 5.  If I move user 1 to DAG 1 and EV server 1 has an Archive Task for DAG 1, will the system know how to get to Vault Store 5 from EV server 1?  I'm assuming the msm queues would take care of this process but I want to be sure.

We're going from 10 Exchange 2007 CCR servers down to 5 Exchange 2010 DAG's and users are going to end up all over the place from their original neat and tidy 1:1 relationship Exchange to EV server and tasks.  I do have the syncinmigration mode reg key and it is set to 1.

Hopefully I haven't been too confusing with my example.

I found the answer to my question in this article.

Any long term issues with leaving things this way or should we use the EV move utility to get things back to a 1:1 relationship?
