About classification test mode
By running classification in test mode, you can identify and resolve any issues with your Veritas Information Classifier policies before you put them into effect. Classification does still occur in test mode, but in the following ways:
When Enterprise Vault indexes items, it does so without applying the classification properties, their values, and any resulting retention changes to the archived items. However, the classification information is stored, and you can review it in a test mode report.
When a user manually deletes an archived item, or Enterprise Vault automatically deletes an item whose retention period has expired, the item is deleted as normal. However, the test mode report indicates whether the action would have been blocked as the result of classification. For example, this might be the case if classification were to apply a retention category that extends the item's retention period or blocks manual deletion or automatic expiry.
The test mode report may help you to identify any Veritas Information Classifier policies that do not work as you expect. Where this is the case, you can amend the policies and rerun the tests until you are satisfied with the outcome.
