Domino Archive problem

Hi Experts.

I have an Archive policy in place configured to archive all documents  from the mail DBs older than 180 days to a Domino Archive server. Then, a server Program document is scheduled to perform the actual archive process from a compact -a /mail
The problem I am experiencing is that after starting from the first DB in alphabetical order, the compact -a gets stuck and hungs while trying to archive some specific DBs. These DBs are normally huge ones (9, 10 GBs), and the task starts consuming more resources from the server, until I have to reboot the server. As a consequence of this, the restof the DBs in the server don´t get archived at all.

I have tried to archive those problematic DBs manually (load compact -a mail/DB.nsf) from the server, but the result is the same.

This is avoiding the correct maintenance of my users DBs, any clue about how to proceed?

Thanks a lot guys.

Add more server resources 9 RAM CPU ) or move these DBs o another more powerful server or replicate just the newer stuff to a local or Server DB and backup the server DB's once and archive on tape.

This will leave only the newer stuff to worry about.

I hope this helps !

So it looks like there is no way to workaround this using the regular DB maintenance processes...

I have just two Domino servers configured as a Cluster, and the Archive Domino server, and basically all of them have basically the same resources, not really impressive, but Enterprise XEON CPU HP servers, 2 GB RAM, etc....

Anyway, some questions from your comment:

a) how can I replicate just the newer stuff to a different DB without impacting the user? would not this create some issue for the user accessing his DBs as regularly?
b) if I move the DB to a different, more powerful server, could I still run the load compact -a mail\DB.nsf on that target server and expect the archive to work, keeping in mind that the archive policy is configured to use the source server as the archive source?
c) in the same way, but considering that I have a cluster, and since the other node (the archive happens in one of them) was more powerful, could I execute the "load -a mail\DB.nsf and expect to work?

Thanks again.
