For Exchange Server 2013, 2010, and 2007, Enterprise Vault includes a PowerShell script which assigns the necessary permissions to the Vault Service account.
Although you must run this script on Exchange Server 2013, 2010, or 2007, the script also assigns the permissions required by the earlier Exchange versions that can co-exist in your environment. However, if your environment contains Exchange servers no later than Exchange Server 2003, you must assign permissions manually.
To assign Exchange Server permissions to the Vault Service account
Log in to the Exchange Server using an account that is assigned the following management roles:
Active Directory Permissions
By default, members of the "Organization Management" role group are assigned these roles.
On the Enterprise Vault server, locate the script called
SetEVExchangePermissions.ps1and copy it to the Exchange Server.
The Exchange PowerShell scripts are in the
PowerShellScriptssubfolder of the Enterprise Vault installation folder (for example
C:\Program Files (x86)\Enterprise Vault).
On the Exchange Server, open the Exchange Management Shell.
The syntax for this script is:
.\SetEVExchangePermissions.ps1 -user domain\user_name
domain is the Active Directory domain that the Vault Service account belongs to.
user_name is the Vault Service account. If user_name contains spaces, enclose it in quotation marks.
If you want to force these changes to take effect immediately, restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service on each Exchange mailbox server.
