Migrating existing targets to provisioning groups
SMTP targets that you added in a previous release of Enterprise Vault will continue to work in Enterprise Vault 12.3. In the Administration Console, existing targets are located under> > .
To take advantage of the easier maintenance provided by the SMTP provisioning feature in Enterprise Vault 12.3 and later, you may decide to migrate some or all of your existing targets to SMTP provisioning groups. Before you migrate targets to provisioning groups, read the "Planning your configuration" topic and "Provisioning users for SMTP Group or SMTP Mailbox Journaling" chapter in the Setting up SMTP Archiving guide.
Points to note when you configure the provisioning groups for the target users:
In Enterprise Vault 12.3, you can assign multiple archives to a single SMTP Group Journaling provisioning group.
Only Internet Mail archives are supported in SMTP Mailbox Journaling provisioning groups. If your existing SMTP Mailbox Journaling targets use Exchange Mailbox archives for SMTP messages, these archives are no longer used under provisioning. Instead, provisioning creates new Internet Mail archives for each of these users. If a user already has an Internet Mail archive, then Enterprise Vault links that archive to the SMTP target.
To migrate existing targets to provisioning groups
- Create the required SMTP Group or Mailbox Journaling provisioning groups, and add the target users. Add Active Directory target users by selecting one of the menu options other than Email address.
Use the Email address option to add to the provisioning group the target SMTP address of a user who is not associated with an Active Directory account. For example, you can use this option to add to the group users who are external to your organization.
- Check that the target users are in the correct provisioning groups.
- Check that the provisioning groups are in the required order.
Enterprise Vault processes the groups from the top of the list down. If a user appears in more than one provisioning group, they are only provisioned in the first group in which they appear.
- We strongly recommend that you stop the SMTP Archiving task until the provisioning run below has finished. This ensures that messages that arrive during the period when the original targets are deleted and the users are provisioned are not lost.
- When you have checked that a user in the manual targets is included in a provisioning group, you can delete the manual target. Enterprise Vault does not provision the target user as a member of the group until you delete the existing target under Manual targets.
- Run the SMTP provisioning task, and then check the provisioning task reports.
