Creating a mailbox for the Vault Service account

During the preinstallation tasks for Exchange 2013 and 2010, you must run a PowerShell script to configure the Exchange throttling policy on the Vault Service account.

Note:

The following information describes the configuration of the Vault Service account. If you run Exchange archiving tasks under a service account other than the Vault Service account, the information applies to this other account.

See Configuring the Exchange throttling policy on the Vault Service account.

You must create a mailbox for the Vault Service account before you can run the throttling policy script.

If you run Exchange 2013 or 2010 in a cross-forest environment, the Vault Service account must have a linked mailbox in the resource forest.

For example, Exchange might reside in a resource forest called "Resources", and user accounts in a user forest called "Users". In this case, the Vault Service account is in the Users forest, and you must ensure it has a linked mailbox in the Resources forest.

In a cross-forest environment such as this, run the PowerShell script against the disabled user account that owns the linked mailbox.
