Archive Manager 5.7 - Installation and Configuration Guide for GroupWise

Deployment considerations for GroupWise System requirements Hardware recommendations Pre-installation preparations Installing and configuring Archive Manager Upgrading/Uninstalling Archive Manager Post-installation tasks Appendix A: Attachment store types Appendix B: Process overview checklist

Dedicated IIS Server

Dedicated IIS Server*: The IIS Server can host multiple instances of the Archive Manager website. The website also supports Network Load Balancing (NLB) with IP-based affinity. Multiple web servers can be configured to host multiple Archive Manager website instances.
CPU (Total Cores)**: Total cores required will vary based on message policies. If stubbing is used, consider your environment moderate access or heavy access and plan accordingly.
OS Disk***: The OS disk will store attachments temporarily while users are downloading them. Disk speeds are typically not a bottleneck.

Sizing the Microsoft SQL database and Archive Manager attachment store

Archive Manager’s storage recommendations must be considered when planning storage, whether the data is to be stored on the same hardware as the software or stored on a separate high-speed disk. Specifically, there needs be either capacity for growth of archive data when Archive Manager is installed or the ability to increase capacity as the archive grows, or both.

The Archive Manager database must always be stored on high performance disks, such as a local SCSI RAID 5 disk (with as many physical spindles as possible), or a fast high-speed attached disk.

The Archive Manager attachment store may be stored on a slower attached disk to reduce cost, as archived attachment retrieval is not as speed-sensitive as a database.

IMPORTANT: For best performance, it is recommended that the full-text index files not reside on the same physical disk as other Archive Manager data repositories—neither the SQL database nor an attachment store.
