How to configure the PST Collector task
. Properties on this page let you configure how often the task should retry a failed operation, and the number of report files to keep.
. On this page you can configure what happens to the PST files after the task has copied them to the PST holding folder.
You can set the maximum number of PST files that this task is allowed to copy to the PST holding folder. This approach is one way of ensuring that the PST Migrator task empties the PST holding folder during its daily scheduled run.
If you intend to back up the PST files before migrating them, selectand then select the appropriate option, as follows:
. Select this option to make the PST Migrator task wait until PST files have a migration status of . If you choose this option, you must set this status manually on each PST file.
. Select this option to make the PST Migrator task wait until PST files have the Ready For Archiving attribute reset. Backup applications typically perform this action.
. It is advisable to schedule the PST Collector task to run during normal office hours, so that it can access as many computers and PST files as possible when users' computers are switched on and connected to the internal network. If the site schedule is set to run tasks during non-office hours, you may want to override the site settings by specifying the schedule for this task.
. The account under which the PST Collector task runs must have appropriate access to the computers and PST files to be migrated. To ensure that the task has adequate access to all the computers in the domain, you can run the task under an account that is a member of the domain administrators' group. Use the settings on the page of the task properties to specify the account.
