  • Hello,

    Exchange 2019 uses the new search engine called "Big Funnel", using Bing technology to make the search even faster and provide better results. Search indexes are not longer stored on disk per Mailbox database, but search indexes are now stored inside the Mailbox database on a per Mailbox basis. So the context index for the database shows NotApplicable in Exchange 2019, and the unhealthy index state will become a thing of the past.

  • Hi Majigougo,

    It is an expected behavior.

    Exchange 2019 doesn't use index folder to search items. The index folder%\ExchangeServer\V15\Mailbox\DatabaseName\****.Single) isn't suitable for Exchange 2019 and doesn't exist on Exchange 2019. Exchange 2019 use a new search engine which call Big Funnel, it is more stable than the old one:
