Exchange Mailbox Archiving tasks
In the Administration Console, on the required Enterprise Vault server under Enterprise Vault Servers, you create an Exchange Mailbox Archiving task for each Exchange Server with user mailboxes to be archived. These tasks are controlled by the Task Controller Service.
Enabling mailboxes that have been processed by the Exchange Provisioning task. The Exchange Mailbox Archiving task creates an archive for the mailbox and enables the mailbox for archiving.
Accessing each mailbox and archiving items according to the policy set for the mailbox. The task works in cooperation with the Indexing Service, which converts and indexes items, and the Storage Service, which compresses and stores the items in the associated archive.
The mailbox folders are replicated in the associated mailbox archive, as are the permissions set on the folders. The archiving task synchronizes folder permissions in Outlook with folder permissions in the archive. This means that if other users have been given access to an Outlook folder, they will also have access to that folder in the mailbox archive.
If required, you can set up shared archives that several users can access. For example, the mailboxes of legal staff could all be set up to have a folder for a case and, in each mailbox, the folder configured to be archived to a shared archive. Unlike mailbox archives, shared archives do not contain folders.
To obtain an estimate of the number of items that will be archived, without actually archiving anything, you can run the task in Report Mode.
Exchange Mailbox Archiving tasks run automatically according to the schedule defined for the Enterprise Vault site.
