Attention

Starting May 1st, 2018, we will no longer offer the ArchiveOne family of products. This includes all editions of ArchiveOne, ArchiveOne for Files, Max Compression, and Access Security Manager. If you currently hold a maintenance and support contract, you will continue to receive our award-winning support until your contract expires, or until May 1st, 2019, whichever occurs first. The license for ArchiveOne is perpetual; therefore the software may continue to be used independently without any updates or support indefinitely.

Verify the following before configuring ArchiveOne:

  • You have installed ArchiveOne Service, ArchiveOne Admin, and the Search and Retrieval Website on a suitable server;

  • If necessary, you have installed a third-party storage manager;

  • You have calculated the correct sizing and disk locations on your ArchiveOne Service system, or fast connected storage, for the Index Base Directory and either Archive Cache Directory or Archive Base Directory.

Step 1. Configure ArchiveOne Admin

You can select to configure ArchiveOne Admin either using the Quick Start or Advanced configuration processes.

Quick Start Configuration Using Mailbox Archiving Wizard

The Mailbox Archiving Wizard allows you to quickly configure a set of repositories and policies by answering a few simple questions. The advantage of this approach is that you can let the system build and configure the various items instead of having to do it manually.

Use the following steps to configure ArchiveOne Admin using the Quick Start configuration process:

  1. From the Start menu, launch ArchiveOne Admin.
  2. Expand ArchiveOne Admin, right-click Status, and click Choose server.
  3. When prompted for an Exchange server, choose the Exchange server name and click OK.

    If no on-premise Exchange servers are found, Exchange Online displays.

  4. Select Quick Start; the Mailbox Archiving Wizard displays.
  5. In the Repositories page, specify the number of years of back data for which you want to create a repository. You can also specify how many years of future archiving:

    Note: You can rerun the wizard to extend these settings, while preserving previously archived data. To do so, launch ArchiveOne Admin from the Start menu, expand ArchiveOne Policy, right-click Status, and click Run Mailbox Archiving Wizard.

  2. Expand ArchiveOne Policy, right-click Status, and click Choose server.

      3. If Centera has supplied you with a Pool Entry Authorization file access profile, specify the file location on the ArchiveOne Service server. 
      4. For Centera, the Archive Cache Directory and Archive Cache Size can be specified on the next page.
    5. If you are using PoINT (PowerFile or other hardware), enter the path to your PoINT system's repository drive including the name of the volume set in the location path, for example, I:\archive06.
    6. If you are using BridgeHead HT Data Repository, enter the name of your HT Data Repository (not to be confused with the name of your ArchiveOne Repository).
    7. If you are using a drive-mapped storage manager, enter the path to your storage manager drive or UNC. For example, \\mystorage\share.
    8. If you are using a storage manager provided by a Storage Controller Module, click Configure to configure the storage manager; consult the documentation provided with the Storage Controller Module for configuration details.

  13. In the License page, if you have a full license, click Review or change license key, then enter the license key and click Test. If you do not have one, then an evaluation license is created for you. You may get a warning at this point since your configuration may not be correct for the license you are using, but you can correct this later in the wizard. Click Next.

  14. In the Retrieval folder page, for the base public folder for retrievals, if you want to retrieve messages to public folders, click Browse and navigate to and select the public folder you want to use. If you do not select a public folder then when you later click to retrieve messages from the archive, you will be asked for details of a PST or mailbox to use. Click Next. 

  15. In the Search URL page, enter the URL you want to use for the Search and Retrieval Website. Click Next.

  16. You can configure the remaining pages, or leave these until later if you prefer.

  17. When you reach the final page, Click Finish.

  18. In ArchiveOne Admin, right-click Mailbox Manager, and click Add mailbox.
  19. Select a mailbox to archive, click add, and then click OK. The configuration page for the mailbox displays. Verify it has used the repository name Standard and initially configured only the mailbox owner as being allowed to search the mailbox archive.

    Note that the administrator is able to run an administrative search into any mailbox.

     

  20. Click OK, and repeat step 19 for any other mailboxes you want to archive.

    If you are using an evaluation license, you are limited to five enabled mailboxes.

     

  21. If you are experimenting with search into mailbox archives using the Search and Retrieval Website as a user, configure your currently logged in user to be allowed to search into the archive of the mailboxes using the following step:
    1. In Mailbox Manager, select a mailbox, and view properties.
    2. Click Add and add the currently logged in user.
    3. Repeat steps a and b for each user.

      You do not need to perform these steps in order to perform an administrative search into mailboxes.

Configuration is now complete. To view the configured properties, in ArchiveOne Admin, expand Repositories, and click Standard, or right-click Status, and then click Properties.

To re-run the wizards, right click Status, and click Run Mailbox Archiving Wizard.

Once you begin archiving content, changing core configuration options, such as the storage type, may result in your archive becoming inaccessible.
