Mixed Exchange environment - Information Store Size limits?
Posted on 2006-05-23
Good afternoon gang -
We are currently running both Exchange 2000 Standard and an Exchange 2003 Enterprise two node active passive cluster. (We did a gradual migration over to the new environment.)
We plan on removing the old 2000 Exchange server in a week.
Right now, all our incoming mail gets passed through the old server first - (same routing group.)
I know there are no limits to the size of the information store in 2003 Enterprise but there is in 2000 Standard (16GB).
If we happen to reach that 16GB limit on the old server within the next week - (not Likely) - will this in any way impact mail coming to our new Enterprise cluster?
In other words, if the old server hits 16GB and its information store shuts down - no big deal because no one is on that server - but will this impact any of our other new Exchange boxes?
