Starting the Storage service on all servers

The first time an Enterprise Vault 8.0 SP4 Storage service starts, it upgrades the storage databases.

You must start the Storage service on every server that has a Storage service. You must then wait for the Storage service to complete the upgrade. The Storage service logs appropriate entries in the event log.

To start the Storage services, do the following on every server that has a Storage service

  1. Use Windows Services to start the Enterprise Vault Storage service. When the Storage service starts, it automatically upgrades the fingerprint databases. Event 6959 is logged for each vault store database that is upgraded.

  2. Wait for event 6221 to be logged in the Enterprise Vault event log:

    Storage Service started.

When you have started every Storage service and waited for the completion event, you can continue to the next section to start the other Enterprise Vault services.
