    Table 5-2 Parameters of a Microsoft Exchange application

    Parameter

    Description

    Value

    Exchange Version

    Version of the Microsoft Exchange software.

    [Value range]

    The value can be Exchange 2007, Exchange 2007 LCR, Exchange 2007 local LCR, Exchange 2007 remote LCR, Exchange 2010, or Exchange 2010 with DAG. The default value is Exchange 2010.

    [Example]

    Exchange 2010

    Mailbox Quota

    Maximum capacity of a Microsoft Exchange email box. The unit of the parameter value can be MB or GB.

    [Value range]

    The value ranges from 512 MB to 5 GB. The default value is 2 GB.

    [Example]

    512 MB

    Number of Emails Per Day

    Maximum number of emails that a Microsoft Exchange email box can send and receive per day.

    [Value range]

    The value ranges from 5 to 500. The default value is 25.

    [Example]

    25

    Log Retention Period (days)

    Retention period of logs generated by the Microsoft Exchange email server.

    [Value range]

    The value ranges from 1 to 30 days. The default value is 14.

    [Example]

    14

    Number of Mailboxes

    Maximum number of email boxes supported by the Microsoft Exchange email server.

    [Value range]

    The value of this parameter is subject to the number of emails per day, log retention period (days), and remaining capacities of storage pools. The value dynamically changes.

    [Example]

    152

  6. Optional: Set advanced Microsoft Exchange properties.

    1. Click Advanced.

      The Advanced dialog box is displayed.

    2. Set advanced properties for Microsoft Exchange.

      Table 5-3 describes related parameters.

      Table 5-3 Parameters in advanced properties of a Microsoft Exchange application

      Parameter

      Description

      Value

      Allocate public folders

      When Exchange Version is Exchange 2007 or related versions, this parameter is available.

      If Allocate public folders is enabled, the system will allocate one more LUN to Microsoft Exchange instances. This parameter is designed for the share access function. This parameter provides an easy and effective way for you to share information. If Outlook 2003 or earlier versions or Microsoft Entourage are installed on clients, those clients can connect to the Exchange server using this public folder only.

      [Example]

      Allocate public folders

      Capacity

      Storage capacity of the public folder. After Allocate public folders is enabled, this parameter is available.

      [Example]

      15 GB

      Enable SmartThin

      After this option is selected, the system creates thin LUNs. A thin LUN is allocated an initial capacity (30% of the total capacity) when created and is dynamically allocated required storage resources when its available capacity is insufficient.

      [Example]

      Enable SmartThin

      Reserve snapshot space

      After this option is selected, the system automatically selects a storage pool whose capacity is 130% of the required capacity. When you use the storage pool to create storage resources for applications, reserve sufficient space to create snapshots for applications.

      [Example]

      -

    1. Click OK.

      You are returned to the Set Exchange Application Parameters page.

  7. Click Next and set storage resource parameters for Microsoft Exchange.

    The system will allocate optimal storage resources based on preset Microsoft Exchange parameters.

    Table 5-4 describes storage resource parameters.

    Table 5-4 Exchange storage resource parameters

    Parameter

    Description

    Value

    LUN Capacity

    LUN storage space allocated to store emails or logs.

    [Example]

    300 GB

    LUN Quantity

    Number of LUNs allocated to store emails, folders, or logs.

    [Example]

    7 (log)

    Storage Pool Policy

    The system sets storage pool allocation policies based on preset Microsoft Exchange application parameters. The value can be High performance, Performance/Cost balance, Low cost, or Manual selection. The four values are described as follows:

    • High performance: The system automatically selects a RAID 6 storage pool containing SAS disks only. If such a storage pool does not exist in the system, create one.
    • Performance/Cost balance: The system automatically selects a RAID 6 storage pool containing SAS and NL-SAS disks only. If such a storage pool does not exist in the system, create one.
    • Low cost: The system automatically selects a RAID 6 storage pool containing NL-SAS disks only. If such a storage pool does not exist in the system, create one.
    • Manual selection: Users define storage pools that meet the Microsoft Exchange service requirements.

    [Example]

    Performance/Cost balance

    Selected Storage Pool

    Name of the storage pool automatically allocated by the system to a Microsoft Exchange instance.

    [Example]

    StoragePool001

  8. Optional: If the desired storage pool type does not exist or is unavailable, click and modify Storage Pool Policy in the displayed dialog box, or click Create Storage Pool to create one.

    Table 5-4 describes related parameters.

  9. Optional: Select a host to which you want to map the instance.

    NOTE:
    • If a mapped host is selected, the system automatically creates a LUN group, a host group, and a mapping view, and adds the LUN group and host group to the mapping view.
    • If no mapped host is selected, the system automatically creates a LUN group only. You need to manually create a host group and a mapping view for a mapped host and add the host to the mapping view. After being added to the mapping view, the host can access storage resources.

      The LUN group must contain all LUNs in the application instance.

    1. Click Next.

      The Select Mapping Hosts page is displayed.

    2. In the Available Hosts list, select the host that is used to access storage resources.
    3. Click to add the host to Selected Hosts.

  10. Confirm your settings.

    1. Click Next.

      The Summary page is displayed.

    1. Verify that the information about the Microsoft Exchange instance to be created is correct and click Finish.

      The Execution Result dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation succeeded.

    1. Click Close.
