I am currently doing email archiving to a server called cvm2 via
a 32 bit mapi agent. cvm2 is too old and needs to be replaced.
I have setup a server called cvm3 which will do archiving
after cutover.cmv3 is preinstalled with the correct software and configured
the same as cvm2.
These are the steps I am planning to do:
1. Shutdown cvm2
2. Deconfigure the email archive agent on cvm2 via the Commcell console
3. cmv3 is preinstalled so I will simply "enable" and "schedule" the agent
The questions are:
1. Is this plan OK? If plan is not OK should the new server also be called cvm2?
2. If email restores need to be made, the restore process needs to use
the cvm2 backups if the email was archived prior to the cutover and use
cvm3 backups if the email was archived after the cutover. Is the email
archive agent smart enough to do this?
The reason that I have presinstalled cvm3 (to take the place of cvm2) is
to reduce the outage time of the cutover.
Thanks for any help
