I installed a pair of 160GB drives on my Exchange server (called Sun) only to find out that Exchange _needs_ IIS to fundtion correctly. Lovely. So now I can't stream from that machine.


But if I run DVArchive on another machine (called Bedrock) and point its storage path to Bedrock, will there be a big perofrmance hit serving shows from Bedrock that actually physically reside on Sun?

NO- you should be able to stream just fine. I have DVA setup to store shows in 2 locations on my network. DVA will automatically shift to the second location after the first is full. Unless I look, I have no idea which computer my shows are stored on-- and they all stream fine.


You might want to browse the DVA FAQ here:

I use DVA on a PC with all the files (shows) on a networked file server. Streaming always works fine. (This is with 100Mb wired net, BTW.)


Dunno about other 'performance hits', but the actual show feeds show no problems.

The problem is that you named your Exchange box "Sun". Here's a snippet of code that runs when Exchange starts up:


if machine_name in ("Sun", "Oracle", "IBM", "Apple", "Red Hat") then

DieAHorribleDeath();

else

RunNormally();



You're the victim of an unfortunate choice of names.
