We are currently running Domino R5 on a Sun Solaris server. We now want to archive, conforming to legal requirements, onto a NAS device. What, if any, are the issues with this? Will R6 cope with this scenario without having to purchase a third-party archival/management product?
I guess it all depends on what you are going to do with those archives. If they are just for storage or very minimal access, NAS is acceptable. If the archives will be utilized heavily, NAS will slow access tremendously and cause latency for client access. It also depends on the logic you need for archiving. The archival agent is very cut and dry, with zero room for different people or scenarios. There is a reason people use the third-party tools. They offer flexibility that the basic archive agent does not.
