Assigning permissions on Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 and 2000

The Vault Service account needs to be able to access mailboxes on the Exchange servers that Enterprise Vault is to archive. You need to assign permissions explicitly on each Exchange server. If you later add another Exchange server, you need to repeat the procedure on the new server to enable mailbox access for the Vault Service account.


If you have Exchange Server 2010 or 2007 in your environment, you should already have assigned permissions using the PowerShell script called SetEVExchangePermissions.ps1 . In this case you do not need to complete the procedures in this section.

See Assigning Exchange Server permissions to the Vault Service account.
