Archive search and Archive Explorer in standalone browser

Users can access Enterprise Vault archives using Archive Explorer or archive search in a standalone browser session. The Enterprise Vault Add-In is not required on desktop computers, but you will need to inform users of the URLs to enter in their browser for Archive Explorer and archive search. These will typically take the following format:

  • Archive Explorer URL:


  • Integrated search URL:


  • Browser search URL:


where web_server_name is the name of your web server.

To use Enterprise Vault browser search or Archive Explorer in a browser session, Internet Explorer 7.0 or later, with JavaScripting enabled, must be installed on each user's desktop computer.


With Exchange Server Journal archiving, shortcuts are not created in the mailbox. The associated archives can be accessed using archive search, but not Archive Explorer.
