Configuring message sampling to determine PST file ownership
You can use the Personal Store Management properties page to configure message sampling to determine the owners of PST files. Depending on how you configure the message sampling settings Enterprise Vault changes the state of the PST file to Ready to copy, or stores the PST file in a default archive.
To optimize performance, make sure that you turn off message sampling and run the PST Locator task to look for PST files. After the PST Locator task completes, turn message sampling on and run the task again to identify possible owners.
The performance of message sampling depends on the number of items in the PST file.
To use message sampling to determine ownership of PST files
- In the left pane of the Administration Console, expand the hierarchy until you see the Personal Store Management node.
- Right-click Personal Store Management. Then click Properties. The Personal Store Management properties are displayed.
- Click the PST Ownership Identification tab.
- Click Use message sampling and do one of the following:
Select Only if PST file marking fails, or the files are unmarked. In this case, Enterprise Vault uses message sampling only if it finds unmarked PST files.
Select Use message sampling first. In this case, Enterprise Vault uses message sampling to look for possible owners.
- In PST file sample size, specify the percentage of messages in the PST file you want Enterprise Vault to scan to look for possible owners.
- Select Assign ownership to users with this percentage of associated messages and specify the percentage of messages that are associated with a certain user within the sample size to assign ownership. You can specify a value in the range 1% through 100%. We recommend that you specify a value between 51% and 100%.
- In the When no owner is identified section, do one of the following:
Select Leave as unassigned. In this case, PST files for which no owner is found remain in the Not ready state.
Select Assign to archive and browse to select a default archive to store the PST files that have no owners identified. For such files, the state changes to Do not migrate.
- Click the Advanced tab.
- Click Change migration state percentage, and then click Modify. Enter a value between 80 - 100.
- Click Message type exclude list, and then click Modify. Enter the message classes you want Enterprise Vault to ignore when it scans the sample size for possible owners.
- Click Apply, and then click OK to save the settings.
