Do Database Storage Limits in Exchange 2010 SP1 affect Archive mailboxes?

Exchange 2010 SP1 allows you to use any DB to store users" Archive Mailboxes. This is good because it allows me to use a different backup policy for Archive mailboxes than for users' Primary mailboxes.

QUESTION: When I set storage limits at DB level, do these limits affect the size of User Archive Mailboxes that may be hosted in the DB? For example if I set the DB storage limit to 2GB on a DB that I am exclusively using to store Archive mailboxes, will users still have their Archive mailboxes set to the default of 50 GB?

archive limits are a seperate command, if you want to set a hard limit on an archive mailbox you ahve to do it via the management shell (unless they added it with sp1 to gui, i havent checked)

In short, setting a db limit should not impact archive mailboxes, use the set-mailbox " name" -archivewarningquota -archivequota command to set that limit

Thanks for the quick response. Now I can plan my storage requirements with more confidence!

Hi Pantherfan, is there a way to set default archive quotas so that they also automatically apply to future mailboxes, not just those that currently exist?

I hope this helps
Get-Mailbox | where {$_.RecipientTypeDetails -eq " UserMailbox" } | Set-Mailbox -ArchiveQuota 2GB -ArchiveWarningQuota 1000MB

You may be able to utilize cmdlet extensions to perform this action.
