Administrator roles required to manage PST Locate and Migrate
If you want an account other than the Vault Service account to manage PST migration objects in the Administration Console, the account must have either the PST Administrator role or the Power Administrator role. The Vault Service account has access to all objects and functions in the Administration Console.
The accounts under which the PST Locator, PST Collector, and PST Migrator tasks run must have appropriate access to the computers to be searched, and the PST files to be processed. The PST Migrator task requires access to the computers and original PST files for post-migration operations.
All the tasks also need appropriate access to the PST holding folder.
The PST Migrator task account must have full access to its temporary files folder.
Depending on the type of search that has been configured for the PST Locator task, the account must either be able to scan remotely the registry on each computer or have access to the drives on each computer.
To ensure that the tasks have adequate access to all the computers in the domain, you can run the tasks under the accounts that are members of the domain administrators' group. Use the settings on thepage of the task properties to specify the account.
For details of the permissions that the account needs, see the online Help for thepage. In addition, the account must have either the PST Administrator role or the Power Administrator role.
It is not advisable to add the Vault Service account to the domain administrators' group.
