Split one Post OFfice in two parts

Hi there!

I have problems with my Poa, because I'm having problems with I/O. Despite of all,
my POA is about 250 GB and I think that it's pretty big. So I have a lot of "batch users"
that are receiving a lot of emails with low priority, and I am thinking in split my post office
in two parts:

1) personal/phyisical users (humans): my actual post office. With SAN storage (expensive)
and priority backups.

2) non humans: batch users, iScsi storage , cheap and only a backup in saturday.

The question is: I saw that there is a procedure to move an user from one post office
to another, but these users have a lot of proxy accesses and rules. These options
are saved in the move? I mean, there are rules for forward emails to users in post office 1).
Does the system relocalize these users from post office 2) in post office 1) ?

I know that the best test would test with one test user... but just in case.

Thank you all!

Hi,

Firstly, here's the official documentation on user moves: https://www.novell.com/documentation/groupwise2014/gw2014_guide_admin/data/adm_user_mgt_move.html

It is important that you run the necessary GWChecks before attempting any move.

Proxy Access is moved.
Address books are updated.
And, as far as I am aware, rules are moved too as they are stored in the user.db. If there are any invalid rules, then you may run into issues!

As part of the move process, I do recommend creating a Nickname on the source post office.

Ensure that nightly user upkeep is running each night to ensure that personal address books get updated.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

No, it's not. 250GB is nothing. Fits on a single 100$ SSD if you really
have I/O issues.

instead of putting a lot of effort into splitting this little
PostOffice into two, how about looking at the I/O challenges as fixing
them might be much more effective. Might even help you elsewhere as
well.

What plateform are you running on? Hypervisor? What is the storage
access type?
What are the particular I/O challenges you are hitting?
