    Is there a way to migrate the email that was archived by commvault from one commcell to another?

    We've restructured our environment so its easier to manage, and then decomission the old commserve. but lately we realized when we restore a user mailbox that was deleted before, we could restore it but some of the emails were archived. I have to rehydrate using the commvault tool and restore the archive from the old commserve

    Any ideas? what do people usually do in this scenario?

    Thanks in advance

    You may try a Commcell migration:

    Depends on the size of the archive, if there is enough space on the mail server than restore the mail and if needed construct a new archiving setup on the current commcell.

    If not you can try to migrate this, you might want to perform this with support as the mailbox proxy relation is sensitive for disruptions.

    Thanks guy,

    We have decided to rehydrate in place all the mailboxes since we will be moving the mailboxes to office365

    Thanks again.
