Information in this solution applies to CCSMSE Data Collection.

For more information, see "Control Compliance Suite for Microsoft Exchange (CCSMSE) System Requirements" at 



Part 1: Initial Configuration
After installing CCSMSE, the CCSMSE snap-in must be configured before use. The bv-Control for Microsoft Exchange Configuration Wizard guides you through the process of configuring the product.

    Part 1A: Invoke the configuration wizard
    1. Right-click the Configuration container under bv-Control for Microsoft Exchange in the Console tree.
    2. Select Configuration Wizard.
    3. On the Welcome panel, click Next.

    Part 1B: Create a credential database if necessary
    1. In the Credential Database panel, click Click and edit here to add new credential database.
    2. In the Create New Database dialog box, enter the password.
    3. Click OK.
    4. In the Add Credential Database dialog box, click Next.
    5. In the Select Credentials panel, select the resource object that you want to add credentials to. Move it in the Credentials section by using >>.
    6. In the Additional Setting dialog box, specify the domain of the user account that is used to access Microsoft Exchange.
    7. Specify a valid Windows account that has administrative rights for Exchange in the User Name field.
    8. Type the password and click OK.
    9. Click Next in the Select Credentials panel.

    Part 1C: Assign a credential database to each user
    1. In the Assign Credential Database to Each User panel, click in the User Name field.
    2. Select a credential database to assign to the selected user.
    3. Click Next.

    Part 1D: Specify the Exchange organization details
    1. In the Exchange Software Support Checks panel, select the check box next to the verifications you want to perform and click Perform Checks.
    2. Click Next after the verification is completed.
    3. On the Connecting to Exchange 2000/2003 and Active Directory panel, type the name of the Global Catalog in the GC Server field.
    4. Click Validate. The organization name is then obtained from the specified GC server.
    5. On the Specify a Default Exchange Server panel, specify a default Exchange server in the Default Server field.
    6. Type the name of a valid mailbox that resides on the Exchange organization in the Mailbox field.
    7. Click Resolve to validate the mailbox name.
    8. Click Next.
    9. Review the summary information on the bv-Control for Microsoft Exchange Summary panel and click Finish.
    Note: The tracking log database node cannot be seen and all the scheduled tasks about the tracking logs are disabled in the following scenario: bv-Control for Microsoft Exchange is initially configured to an organization containing Exchange
    2000 / 2003 server and an Exchange 2007 server is added. The organization cache is rebuilt and the bv-Control for Microsoft Exchange node is refreshed. This happens because bv-Control for Microsoft Exchange 8.60 does not support the
    tracking log database functionality.

Part 2: Setting up the installation configurations
The Installation configuration for bv-Control for Microsoft Exchange dialog box appears when you right-click the Configuration container under the bv-Control for Microsoft Exchange container. This dialog opens with the Exchange Settings
tab selected by default.

    Part 2A: Use the Exchange Settings tab
    1. In the Organization field, enter the name of your Exchange organization.
    2. Click Select GC.
    3. Enter the name of the GC server in the Connect to Windows 2000/2003 Global Catalog Server dialog box. The full distinguished name for the Global Catalog server can be used. The configured server must be a Global Catalog Server in the Windows 2000/2003 forest in which the configured Exchange organization resides.
    4. Select the Global Catalog Server nearest to the Information Server.
    5. Click Select Default Server.
    6. Select a server from the Choose Exchange Server dialog box.
    7. In the Mailbox field, enter the name of a valid mailbox. BV-Control for Microsoft Exchange requires the MAPI/Exchange mailbox account that is configured with the userfs logon account. Otherwise, grant the "Windows administrator" rights to all the mailboxes in the organization by changing the permissions on the organization object.
    NOTE: By default, Enterprise administrators are denied rights to access all mailboxes. The denial of the Receive As and Send As rights sets the explicit denial of rights to administrators on the organization object. You can clear these denial rights
    for the accounts that you want to have full access to.
    8. Click Check Name.
    9. Click Clear All if you want to specify the settings again or click Verify All to verify all the details.

    Part 2B: Use the Move Mailbox Options tab
    Do one of the following on the Move Mailbox Options tab:
    Click Log File Location to select the location of the file to log the information that is related to the mailbox moves.
    Click Batch Input Location to select the location where the batch input file should be stored.

    Part 2C: Use the Message Deletion tab
    Do one of the following on the Move Mailbox Options tab:
      • Choose Hard delete of messages to permanently delete messages without moving them to the Deleted Items folder.
      • Choose Soft delete of messages to mark the message for deletion until it is permanently deleted from the Information Store.

    Part 2D: Use the Mail Enabled Groups tab
    Click Exclude hidden recipients while adding to Mail Enabled Groups to exclude the hidden recipients while copying or moving the recipient objects such as mailboxes.

    Part 2E: Use the Organization Options tab
    Do one of the following on the Organization Options tab:
      • Choose Load Organization Cache at startup to load the organization information from cache at startup.
      • Click Rebuild Organization Cache to automatically update the organization cache information.
      • Choose Display EDB totals for server in the admin group browser if you want to display the Exchange database totals for objects in the Exchange organization.
