Changing the order of the SMTP provisioning groups
The order in which the provisioning groups are listed is significant. Provisioning processes the groups from the top of the list down. This section explains how you can change the order in which Enterprise Vault processes the provisioning groups.
You can use ordering of provisioning groups to exclude or include Windows users in provisioning:
Excluding certain users in a selected Windows group.
Multiple provisioning groups can include the same users, but Enterprise Vault provisions users only once; using the first group that includes them. This feature is useful if you want to provision users in a particular Windows security group, but exclude a subset of these users.
You can do this by creating a provisioning group that targets the users that you want to exclude. Configure this provisioning group so that archiving is not enabled. If you give this provisioning group the highest priority, it prevents any other provisioning group from enabling archiving for the targeted users.
Provisioning previously excluded users in the same way as the rest of the selected Windows group.
You can remove a provisioning group, or remove target users from a provisioning group. If a lower priority provisioning group also targets these users, the next run of the SMTP Provisioning task creates targets for the users.
The list of SMTP provisioning groups includes both SMTP Group and Mailbox Journaling provisioning groups. If users are included in multiple provisioning groups, provisioning processes them as members of the topmost group only. Provisioning then ignores these users when it processes lower priority provisioning groups that contain the users. This means that a target user cannot be provisioned for both SMTP Group Journaling and SMTP Mailbox Journaling.
To change the order in which Enterprise Vault processes the SMTP provisioning groups
- In Administration Console tree, right-click the Provisioning Groups node and select Properties.
- In the Domain list, select a domain to view the provisioning groups that it contains.
- Use Move Up and Move Down buttons to rearrange the groups.
Ensure that the most specific group is at the top of the list, and the least specific is at the bottom.
The changes take effect the next time the SMTP Provisioning task runs.
