How many archive databases can I have in Exchange 2010 Standard?

Hello,

We have a two-member DAG with 5 databases on Exchange 2010 Standard. We also have a separate Exchange 2010 Standard server dedicated to archiving which currently has 2 databases.

In order to improve the efficiency of our backups, we want to add more archive databases.

Does the Exchange 2010 Standard limit of 5 database apply to archiving as well?

Thanks,

Scott

There is no such thing as archive databases. They are just regular databases that have archive mailboxes in them. Therefore the usual limits apply - five on standard edition without public folders.
