The Retention Folder feature enables you to create a single folder or a hierarchy of folders automatically in users' mail files. Enterprise Vault archives these folders according to policies that you assign. If a user deletes any folders in the retention folder hierarchy, Enterprise Vault automatically recreates them.
You specify the retention folders and their retention categories in retention plans. You can create as many retention plans as you require.
You use Enterprise Vault provisioning groups to apply retention plans to mail files. Thus, different users can have different retention folders with the appropriate retention categories. You can also define a default retention plan that Enterprise Vault applies to all users for whom a specific plan is not defined.
You create an XML file in which you define the retention plans and assign retention plans to provisioning groups. You then use the EVDominoRetentionPlans.exe command line tool to upload the XML file to Enterprise Vault.
The process to create and apply a retention plan is as follows:
If you have existing retention plans you can use the EVDominoRetentionPlans.exe command line tool to extract the definition of the existing plans from Enterprise Vault. You extract the plans as a single XML file.
Edit the existing XML file or create new XML file as required to create the new retention plan.
Use EVDominoRetentionPlans.exe to load the XML file into Enterprise Vault. Enterprise Vault automatically validates the XML and does not accept an invalid file.
Enterprise Vault applies the plan on the next run of the provisioning task or the mailbox archiving task.
