Hi Experts,

I have a virtulized EXCH 2007 cluster running on VMWARE 6.0
The storage is a NETAPP system and the LUN for ECH is connected via iSCSI.
What about DEDUPE, is it recommended ot not ?

You can run DeDupe on the volume, this will reduce your OS storage. (if you have like VMs in the volume/LUN)

We run DeDupe on a schedule every 24 hours.

ok thanks Andrew.
because we have a strange problem with our exchange. After the move to another location the management tasks are taking much longer time.
To create a mailbox this tales 10 minutes.

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

I cannot find any problem, when I check CPU, RAM,DISKS,STORAGE or LATENCY.

When creating a new mailbox, which server is in progress ? Mailbox Server or HUB-CAS ?

I would recommend a discussion with VMware and NetApp Support, especially with NetApp to check your Filer configuration.
