Step 4. Global Configuration

Review the Global Configuration settings, in particular setting the desired Ownership determination and applying the receive connector permissions for the PST Enterprise service account so it can send the System Health report.

Step 5. PST Enterprise Client Deployment

The PST Enterprise Client must be run in order for PST files to be processed. Follow How to Deploy the PST Enterprise Client to start discovering PST files.

Step 7. Policy Definitions

Create suitable policies to assign to the PST files on the Policy Definitions.

Step 8. Review Discovered PST Files

Once the PST Enterprise Client is deployed, discovered PST files are reported in the Assigned PSTs and Unassigned PSTs tabs. You can then assign a policy to these PST files to process the data.
