Lots of times I refer back to the EV manuals to see whether something that I “discover” is actually documented.  I have a copy locally on my machine in the office of many of the manuals, from many of the different versions.  I had often wondered about an externalised version of them, and whether they were easy to find.

With the power of Google, I found :

http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/277782.htm

That goes back as far as V6, which is the beginning of time (almost) as far as I am concerned

I wanted to post this article from storagemagazine because I was suprised that 63 of the respondents to this survey are not using an age or quota based policy.....

Growing need for email archiving

Hello All,

In our field many of the times we need to migrate the data from volume-to-volume or may be folder-to-folder. In these cases simple copy paste won't help us.

Recently I had ended up in the same remedy of moving B2D data from one storage LUN to another with data size crossing TB. Copy paste was giving errors, stopping in between, blah blah...

Then I used these tools from Microsoft to copy the data and it worked very well.

That is why I am sharing these tools to you. These are free utilities from Microsoft.


RichCopy -

This utility is written by a Microsoft engineer named Derk Benisch. This is nothing but the GUI version of the very popular Robocopy command-line utility.

For more information and to download RichCopy refer to below mentioned link.

Within our organisation we are solely concerned with email archiving. We have six Exchange 2000 active/passive clusters, with a dedicated EV server attached to each split equally across two data centres.

Before our virtualisation adventure took place we were running our EV email archiving servers on end of life hardware (End of life when the project implemented EV), which with ever increasing frequency of hardware failures took place. Typically mirrored disks would go down, raid card battery failures, RSA cards not functioning, the list goes on. It was just one big headache; and that was only the hardware.

For the software we were running on 2007 7.5 SP1, which seemed to give us no end of users complaining about their emails not completely archiving and their mailboxes not decreasing in size. We were also running on Windows 2003 SP1; which Symantec had advised us several times has serious shortcomings with MSMQs. Essentially the outgoing queues did not get processed...

Hello fellow EV-admins, users, supporters,

My name is Gertjan. I am Dutch. (it ain't much if it ain't dutch!)

I am working for a contracting firm called T2. I've been placed at one of the largest EV implementations in the Netherlands. Due to the nature of the environment (as pointed out by someone..) I will not post too much about it.

It is big. Over 95000 mailboxes, over 75000 active archives

Besides managing Enterprise Vault, I also manage a little the Exchange environment.

Current version is EV2007SP2, planning to go to 8.0SP2 (august?)

I cannot promise to post regularly, but will try to do so.

I'm getting used to the new forum-layout, but this Blog is definitely an addition to it.

I'm an MCSE+Messaging2003, MCTS, Symantec Certified Specialist EV2007 for Exchange Administrator (yep, proud of it.)

 oh, forgot... Running the EV-servers as VM's... The index and storagedisks are SAN based. (EVA)

Hopefully you are all aware of sp5 being released for EV 2007 (aka EV 7.5)  If you are not I highly encourage you to sign up for notifications.  See a blog posted by EV Guys linked here:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/navi...

 

Whilst reading through the updates this feature caught my eye.  It is the ability for the user to easily send the log via email.  Now this might seem like a small thing but recalling my support days and having to walk folks through locating this file and then the EV Admin have to walk the end user through getting the email are little things that add delays to the support process.  Now all they have to do is click a button, how cool is that! 

Here are the details from the updates.htm

Option to create a mail message...
