About Domino mailbox archiving and Enterprise Vault
Domino mail files hold many types of information, for example, messages, documents, spreadsheets, and graphics. You can specify the default types of items that Enterprise Vault archives (according to the Domino forms they use) in the properties of the Directory (Domino Forms tab). The list can be tailored in individual Domino Mailbox Policies.
Domino mailbox archiving does not automatically archive content held in NSF files stored on users' computers. However, you can use NSF migrator to archive the content from NSF files.
Enterprise Vault for Domino mailbox archiving comprises an Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway and an Enterprise Vault server. These can be on the same computer, but typically will be on separate computers to support larger Domino environments.
Figure: Overview of Domino mailbox archiving provides an overview of Domino mailbox archiving.
Domino mailbox archiving requires at least one Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway for each Domino domain. This is a computer with Domino Server, Notes and Enterprise Vault installed. If this is on a separate computer from the Enterprise Vault server, then only Enterprise Vault Admin Service and Directory Service are required. The Domino Server installed on the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway computer is used by Enterprise Vault to access the Domino Directory and target Domino mail servers.
Enterprise Vault servers that are archiving Domino mail servers must have Notes installed.
On the Enterprise Vault server, using the Administration Console, you create a Domino Mailbox Archiving task to archive items from user mail files. You define as archiving targets the target Domino mail servers and user mail files that the task is to archive. Enterprise Vault automatically creates an archive for each user mail file to be archived.
Enterprise Vault can archive from mail-in databases. This feature enables you to archive mail items that several users share. Vault Cache is not available for the mail that is archived from mail-in databases.
Domino mailbox policies define how mail files are to be archived. Domino desktop policies define the features available in Notes and control how the client functions.
If required, there can be several Enterprise Vault servers to one Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway. Each Enterprise Vault server can have a maximum of one Domino Mailbox Archiving task that archives to a local vault store.
If you use secondary Domino servers to keep replicas of users' mail files, it is possible to archive from those secondary servers instead of from the mail servers. When there are many mail servers and only a few secondary servers this approach can simplify the configuration.
Enterprise Vault supports clustered Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway servers. These servers are clustered using IBM Domino server clustering.
