Quota based Archiving blended with Age based using EVPM, Is It Possible ?
EDIT: Thread Title changed to more accurately reflect thread content.
As an interesting challenge we have been looking at potential best practices for advanced Archiving policies. Potentially combining Quota based policy ( i.e. archive until mailbox's have 40% free ) with periodic date based archive run to ensure an even spread of items in all the mailbox's.
Symantec PS and a number of advanced EV customers have apparently been looking at this and I thought i would ask if anyone has any views on the best way to achieve this ? There is no mention of this in the documentation and I have searched on this and other forums but so for it looks like uncharted territory.....
To implement a solution like this most likely requires EVPM and the documentation here is perhaps not as comprehensive as one would like. ( for example do optional settings like "ALargeItemThresholdPeriod" take priority or get affected by inactivity period settings ? )
More importantly when using quota based archiving are the settings mailbox based/folder based or site based ?
Is anyone aware of any sites running this way and I would be especially interested in any of your ideas about the potential to effectively utilize a combination of date based and Quota based policies, what are your suggestions for how regularly and at what level should the policy be swapped ?
FYI. Environment is EV6 SP1
