Make sure your archive server and source servers meet the following prerequisites and guidelines:
The Archive server can be the same or different server as the source server.
The Archive server and the Client workstation system clocks must be synchronized.
One archive server can have only one job defined for any one volume.
A single archive server can archive many volumes with only one job defined per volume.
A given volume can have only one job defined for it.
The archive server and the source server can be the same machine or different machines.
The archive server and primary server both should be in the same eDirectory tree.
The archive data volume must reside on the archive server.
Make sure your server meets the system and software requirements for OES 2 Linux. For information, see the OES 2 SP3: Linux Installation Guide
Determine how much storage space you need for the archive database, given the following criteria:
How much data needs to be stored immediately by the versioning job
How much data there is to version (the physical storage requirements by versioning job)
How frequently the data must be versioned (the length of time in an epoch by versioning job)
How long you need to store the versions (maximum keep time and maximum versions to keep by versioning job)
