That’s it. I see that I’m at the limit of indexed items for a single node, and our indexed material continues to grow. Email in this case, but my file indexer will be full on it’s first node within the next few months.
How do I add another node?

You are currently on our old exchange mailbox agent and using the old way of content indexing the data using what we call Search Engine. Search engine has a limit of 30 millions emails per node. You can add new nodes to the current engine and keep continuing. But that is not going to be my recommendation.
We would like you to start using the new Exchange agent and the new way of indexing.
Here is the steps to follow do the transition.
Once you move, the index server which you will be used to store the emails moves from 30 million to 250 million based on the machine configuration. Details here
You have 30 million content indexed emails and they may have to be reindexed to get this bigger capacity. You will have plan for that.
Finally, index servers can run on VMs. Just make sure they have dedicated CPU and memory.
