MBS - running out of space and syncs failing RRS feed

  • Question

  • We've just come across a annoyance with DPM 2016 and MBS.

    We now no longer have the ability to specify how much space to allocate to a data source - MBS decides how much storage to allocate itself.

    We are now in the situation were we are migrating Exchange users from 2013 to 2016.  As the mailbox databases are growing quickly the sync jobs are running out of space and being cancelled.  MBS is growing the storage, but not quickly enough and we are continually having to start manual syncs that inevitably fail, just so MBS grows the storage fast enough.

    We either need to be able to specify the amount of storage MBS allocates, or for MBS to handle this without failing the sync jobs.
