When running the PST Processor, you see that the AOnePolPstProc.exe process starts up briefly but the process immediately shuts down and terminates. Examining the PST processor log you see:

08 15:21:19 181489 PSTProc about to call configuration webservice at 'http://SERVER01/AOnePSTManagement/AOnePSTManagement.asmx' passing FQDN ''

08 15:21:19 311692 Configuration website connnection failed, pause and retry

When the PST Processor starts up, it will attempt to connect to the webservice specified on the command line to download its configuration information. If the connection to the PST Management website fails, the PST Processor will terminate.


The URL and the returned HTTP error will be specified in the trace file in the SOAP URL and SOAP GetStatusCode lines, e.g.:

08 15:21:21 315585 SOAP GetClientError:10 (see

08 15:21:21 315834 SOAP GetStatusCode:403 (see

1. This implies you are trying to access a website that requires SSL without using HTTPS. If SSL is configured in IIS Manager for this website and you have a valid SSL certificate, then you should specify HTTPS on the URL. If you do not have a valid SSL certificate for this address, then you should remove the requirement for SSL from the website in IIS Manager.

1. HTTP 404: Not found

You should confirm in IIS Manager that the ArchiveOne application pool is running and the website is accessible on the local server.It may assist you to copy the URL into a web browser as you will be able to see any authentication prompts, page not found, or SSL certificate errors. The URL must be accessible without user intervention.
