I am looking to gain some insight into actively managing an Exchange Store (VM Only). We currently have Unity Voicemail only with Exchange on box system which has not been managed for a long time. I am wondering what a standard mailbox size should be? Also, can anyone comment on using the "Cisco Unity Message Store Manager" for some of these maintenance tasks? Any other tasks I should be running on a regular basis? The only thing we currently do is run daily full backups. Any info would be great.
Typically, I would treat this as you would any backup type of task. I would do once a week depending what you are needing to do for maintenance. I would also schedule it overnight and/or on weekends when the servers is at a low level of activity. If your server is not utilized that much, then obviously schedule it for once a month if needed. Use your discretion.
