Message tracking logs - mailbox server being decomm - Exchange 2013
Posted on 2016-10-18
Currently got 4 mailbox servers - call them A, B, C, and D.
All mailbox databases have been moved off A. All transport rules have been disabled on A,.
However, if you run message tracking query, obviously, there are log files on A pertaining to previous emails processed by A.
We now need to decommision server A. Problem is if we do this then surely we're losing all the message tracking logs off A? Admitedly, we're not getting any new messages processed by A but if we need to search tracking logs we're losing info if we turn off A.
Is there any way around this? Copying logs to one of the remainign servers etc?
