Introducing this guide

This book gives an introduction to Veritas Enterprise Vault and associated products and explains how to plan your installation.

The book is designed to be read serially. The first part introduces the features and architecture of the various Enterprise Vault components. This gives you the background information you need to plan and set up your Enterprise Vault system. The second part describes the planning decisions that you need to make to set up Enterprise Vault.

To set up Enterprise Vault, you need a working knowledge of the following products:

  • Microsoft Windows Server

  • Microsoft SQL Server

  • Microsoft Message Queue Server

  • Microsoft Outlook

  • Internet Information Services (IIS)

If you use Enterprise Vault with Microsoft Exchange Server or Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server, you need a working knowledge of those products.

Introducing this guide

This book gives an introduction to Veritas Enterprise Vault and associated products and explains how to plan your installation.

The book is designed to be read serially. The first part introduces the features and architecture of the various Enterprise Vault components. This gives you the background information you need to plan and set up your Enterprise Vault system. The second part describes the planning decisions that you need to make to set up Enterprise Vault.

To set up Enterprise Vault, you need a working knowledge of the following products:

  • Microsoft Windows Server

  • Microsoft SQL Server

  • Microsoft Message Queue Server

  • Microsoft Outlook

  • Internet Information Services (IIS)

If you use Enterprise Vault with Microsoft Exchange Server or Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server, you need a working knowledge of those products.
