Configure pass-through recall for a Windows file server as follows.
Some additional instructions apply for clustered file servers.
To configure pass-through recall for a Windows file server
Ensure that the FSA Agent is installed on the file server.
In the Administration Console, expand the Enterprise Vault site until the Targets container is visible.
Expand the Targets container, and then expand the File Servers container
Right-click the Windows file server for which you want to configure pass-through recall and then, on the shortcut menu, click Properties.
The settings for pass-through recall are on the file server properties General tab.
Select Configure pass-through recall.
Enter a location on the file server for the disk cache that Enterprise Vault uses when it recalls files. We recommend that you specify a location on a high-performance disk. The Vault Service account must have write permission on the folder.
Select a disk cache size. Typically there is little benefit in increasing the cache size from its default setting.
Click OK to save the changes to the file server's properties.
Enable pass-through recall for each existing volume on the file server on which you want to use this feature. Select Enable pass-through recall on the General tab of the volume's properties.
If you add new volumes for archiving on the file server, Enterprise Vault does not enable them for pass-through recall. You must enable new volumes for pass-through recall manually, if required.
Enterprise Vault trims the pass-through recall disk cache automatically when the disk cache becomes full. If you want to trim the cache manually, you must first stop the Enterprise Vault Placeholder service on the Windows file server. Remember to restart the Placeholder service when you have finished deleting files from the cache.
You can use registry values to set a pass-through recall rate, or to prohibit programs from receiving files by pass-through recall.
