    Default Move archive mailboxs to a dedicated disk

    Dear forum

    We have a Zimbra server network addition 7.2.0 .

    I have notices our archive mailboxes have become very big . is there a way to move the archive mailboxes to a different location (hard drive) ?

    Thanks

    Default

    Not sure how Network Edition backups work but you could always mount a drive and its partition to the directory where backups are going. If zimbra won't let you choose the directory. I have a hard drive mounted in /opt so my whole installation is on a separate drive.

    Default

    HSM or another server.

    I have a separate server for my archive mailboxes. I limit the servers available for normal and archive mailboxes.
    IE:
    * mail.server.com is main email server with all the normal mailboxes on it
    * archive.server.com is archive email server with all the archive mailboxes on it.

    Originally everything was all on mail.server.com and when I created archive.server.com I did a bunch of CLI mailbox migrations to get them all moved over.
    The default COS for my @server.com email domain limits accounts to mail.server.com server.
    The default COS for @archive.server.com email domain limits accounts to archive.server.com server.
    This ensures that accounts are created on the right server by default.
    If you make use of the 'default' COS then you will NEED to check the servers available every time you update zimbra as it changes the available servers.
