When utilizing a PEA file with a Centera Configuration, it is important that the PEA file is accessible by each component that requires access to it. The Archive Manager components that will access the Centera, and therefore require access to the PEA file, are:
As a result, the group ArchiveManagerServiceUsers should have permissions to access the PEA file location. The PEA file should also be present on all servers with the above Archive Manager components. (This is important if you have NLB WebServers, and/or a clustered Archive Manager installation).
The Caringo CAStor/Dell DX storage cluster is supported for the storage of attachments and compliance messages. The Caringo HTTP interface is used to store and retrieve items. Archive Manager considers the storage cluster to be an online blind storage system; we present an item, and receive a "ticket". To get the item back, we present the ticket and get the item. Note that performing a full text index reindex can overload the storage cluster with restore requests. Please consult Quest before doing this.
The Bridgehead HDR system is supported for the storage of attachments and compliance messages. The native HDR API’s are used to store attachments in a HDR system. Archive Manager considers the HDR to be a "usually-online blind storage system." Archive Manager presents an attachment, and then receives a “ticket”. To get the attachment back, Archive Manager presents the ticket and gets the attachment. If the HDR tells Archive Manager that the attachment is to be retrieved from slow storage (tape, DVD etc.), Archive Manager presents this to the user or handles it in the appropriate way.
Archive Manager considers the IBM DR550 to be a usually-online blind storage system; we present an attachment, and receive a “ticket”. To get the attachment back, we present the ticket and get the attachment. If the IBM DR550 tells us the attachment is to be retrieved from slow storage (tape, DVD etc.), we present this to the user or handle it in an appropriate way.
