Is there a way to increase the database storage size for mail flow central without re installing it? I cut down the # of months to store data, but this didn't do anything. Can you increase the storage capacity of the database without re-installing it? We are using 85% of the database right now.
I realize this thread is a bit dated now, but in case anyone else needs this answer...
Yes, you can increase it by changing the config file using these instructions:
1. Stop the Mail Flow Central service. 2. Stop the MySQL service. 3. Make a backup copy of your my.cnf file — my.cnf.bak. 4. Use a text editor of your choice (one that will not imbed any formatting or RTF information into a plain text document) to edit the c:/my.cnf file. 5. Change the maximum database size from the current value (this size is set to 10GB by default in Mail Flow Central version 1.2) to your new desired value. You must never reduce the value in the file. Find the following line in your file: innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10G:autoextend:max:10G Increase the value indicated after the string “max:” For example, to change the maximum database size from 10GB to 90GB, the modified line would look like this: innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10G:autoextend:max:90G 6. Save the c:/my.cnf file and exit the editor. 7. Start the MySQL service. 8. Once the MySQL service has started, start the Mail Flow Central service.
I still have Mailflow Central and I want to increase the database size, I follow your method but as soon as I start the Mail Flow Central Service the size of the database comes back to 10... I need to do something else?
Also, I find 2 my.cnf files, one inside \Program Files\IronPort Systems\Mail Flow Central\db\data and another one inside \Program Files\IronPort Systems\Mail Flow Central\mailFC\sql; Which one did you modify?
We have configured the outside and inside Interface with official ipv6 adresses, set a default route on outside Interface to our router, we also have definied a rule , which also gets hits, to permit tcp from inside Interface to any6.
In Syslog I also se...
