IM Manager is exporting IM conversations to EV using direct-EV export job. EV CA has been set up to sample IM conversations. However no IM conversations are returned by the EV CA sampling functions.



  • Export job is created as an integrated EV export job.
    1. Open the IM Manager Administration Console.
    2. Click on Administration tab.
    3. Click on Configuration > Export.
    4. Click the Edit control for the EV export job.

    If there is an EV Directory DNS Alias textbox then the export job is an integrated EV export job.



The CA sampling function does not work with messages inserted using the EV API.
