Required and optional tasks when upgrading SMTP Archiving
The SMTP Archiving feature was introduced at Enterprise Vault 11.0.1. Subsequent releases have improved and expanded the feature considerably. Enterprise Vault applies some of these improvements automatically to your configuration during the upgrade procedure.
After you upgrade the SMTP Archiving components, we recommend that you perform the tasks listed in Table: Checks and tasks to perform after you upgrade Enterprise Vault. The sections listed under the column heading, More information, provide detailed information about each task.
Table: Optional checks and tasks to perform after you upgrade Enterprise Vault lists some optional changes that you may want to make to take advantage of improved functionality.
"Legacy SMTP archiving" refers to the SMTP archiving solution in Enterprise Vault 11.0.0 and earlier. SMTP Archiving was completely redesigned in Enterprise Vault 11.0.1. Although the legacy SMTP archiving components are still supported at this release, we strongly recommend that you use the current SMTP Archiving feature instead.
Table: Checks and tasks to perform after you upgrade Enterprise Vault
Check that the type of SMTP journaling assigned to existing targets is correct.
Check that only supported archive types are assigned to existing targets.
Check the permissions of the SMTP Archiving task account, if the Vault Service account is not used.
Check the configuration setting for Journal reports.
Check the value of thesite setting.
If you use the legacy SMTP archiving solution, re-configure the legacy SMTP archiving components.
If you want to continue running the legacy SMTP archiving components, then you need to rerun the legacy SMTP archiving configuration process.
