Skype for Business Archiving components
Table: Overview of Skype for Business Archiving components provides an overview of the main components of Skype for Business archiving. You can configure Skype for Business archiving using the Enterprise Vault Administration Console or Enterprise Vault PowerShell cmdlets.
Table: Overview of Skype for Business Archiving components
The SMTP Archiving task processes the .eml conversation files in the holding folder as follows:
The SMTP holding folder is a local folder that is assigned to the SMTP Archiving task. The folder location is in the SMTP Archiving task properties. Conversation files are placed in the folder for the archiving task to process.
Conversations that the archiving task fails to archive are not deleted automatically from the holding folder. The conversations are placed in a Failed subfolder.
Skype for Business Archiving does not require an SMTP policy.
Retention categories and retention plans
Retention categories are assigned to conversations when they are archived. This categorization makes it easier to retrieve conversations because it is possible to search by retention category.
Users can select retention categories and assign them to Skype for Business conversations. When Enterprise Vault archives a conversation, it is stored with the appropriate retention category.
With a retention plan, you can associate a retention category with a number of other settings, such as a classification policy and the criteria for discarding expired conversations. All these settings can be applied to one or more archives.
For more information, see "Working with retention categories and retention plans" in the Administrator's guide.
The target Skype for Business server from which conversations are archived. The target properties contain the following settings:
The Skype for Business targets are displayed in the Administration Console, under Targets > Skype for Business. They can also be listed out using the Get-EVSkypeForBusinessTarget PowerShell cmdlet.
Only one Skype for Business target per Enterprise Vault server is supported.
Skype for Business conversations can be stored in an existing archive, or you can create new archives to hold the conversations. Although you can use any archive type, the archive types that are typically used for Skype for Business Journaling are SMTP, Shared, Exchange Journal, or Domino Journal archives. These archive types support sampling. We recommend that you do not use Exchange Mailbox or Internet Mail archives for Skype for Business Journaling.
