Journaling Database in DAG ENV RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are an exchange 2010 SP1 shop. Two servers (all roles) two sites with DAG. New compliance requirements are pointing to journaling the entire database, so avoid users deleting emails in between backup periods. 

    If we were to set up a journal mailbox in the environment, could we do this without impacting our current environment in terms of replicating production between the DAG? We have no need to implement the journaling mailbox into our DAG solution. Just to keep true email records for compliance. 

    Any ideas, suggestions? 

    thanks, SJMP

    Then, please put the journaling mailbox into a regular mailbox database that isn’t enabled for continuous replication

    But, as I know, the messages that have been deleted by users will be saved in the dumpster. Please see the article below for more details

  • is the dumpster part of the journaling? I assume from what you are saying we need to set up a jounraling only database on a separate exchange server (to not impact performance of production exchange servers) and the dumpster will keep all deleted items?

     

    Is both the journaling and the dumpster also searchable via e-discovery features?

     

    Thanks,

  • You can still put journaling database on the DAG member, just don’t add any database copy for it

    Without journaling, deleted messages will still exist in the dumpster during the retention period, and you can “discover” them
