Decommission GFI MailArchiver
Posted on 2012-09-12
Can anyone help me decommission GFI Mail Archiver completely from Exchange?
Currently on Exchange 2003 Standard and will be migrating to 2010 standard shortly. The storage limits on 2003 are no longer an issue and with 4 stores (in 2010) and under 200GB email in total, I would rather have it all in Exchange 2010. I need to know how to safely remove GFI without losing email, what is involved? Is this a really bad idea (older version of GFI) or should we just stop archiving but keep the archives available? I dont particularly want to have to reinstall GFI on the new 2008 r2 platform if possible, I suppose we can keep the 2003 server with GFI just for this if required (all in VMWare anyway with no resource constraints)
