Editing PST file properties
The normal status of a PST file that has been found is "Do not migrate". When you are ready for the PST Collector task to copy the file to the PST holding folder, edit the PST file properties in the Administration Console and change the status to "Ready to copy".
If you have used message sampling to identify PST file owners, then depending on how you have configured ownership identification Enterprise Vault automatically changes the state to.
If the PST Locator task cannot determine the ownership of the PST file, the associated mailbox, and its corresponding archive, then the PST file status is displayed as "Not ready". You need to edit the properties of the PST file to provide the required information, and change the status to "Ready to copy".
If required, you can use the Settings tab in the PST file properties to specify the password for a password-protected file.
To edit the properties of a PST file
- In the Administration Console listing, double-click the PST file name to display the PST file properties.
On the General page, do one of the following:
Next to Mailbox, click Browse, and then select the mailbox of the user who owns the PST file. The corresponding archive is automatically chosen.
Next to Destination archive, click Browse, and then select the mailbox archive of the user who owns the PST file. The corresponding mailbox is automatically chosen.
- On the Settings page you can configure the following, if required:
Specify a retention category to be used for this PST file.
Select the Windows code page to be used when creating folders for this PST file.
Specify the migration priority as Critical, Important, High, Medium, Low, or Lowest. The default priority is Medium.
Specify a password for PST file if it is password-protected.
- When you have completed the required details, change the migration status on the General page to Ready to copy.
