This document provides important information about Discovery Collector, which you should read before you install or upgrade the software. For the most up-to-date version of this document, see the following article on the Symantec Enterprise Support site: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH141422
The documentation that accompanies Discovery Collector provides extensive information on installation and configuration processes.
To migrate Discovery Collector 9.0 to Discovery Collector 10.0, you must first export the database from the Discovery Collector 9.0 virtual appliance to an NFS share. Then you must import the database from the share into a Discovery Collector 10.0 virtual appliance.
IMPORTANT: If you are running Discovery Collector 9.0, you must upgrade to Discovery Collector 9.0.2 before you upgrade to Discovery Collector 10.0.
If possible, upgrade to Discovery Collector 9.0.2 by using a remote repository. For procedural information, see the "Updating Software" section on page 226 of the Discovery Collector User Guide 9.0. To obtain the URL that you require for this process, see the Enterprise_Vault_Discovery_Collector_9_0_2-Download_instructions.htm document on the Discovery Collector 9.0 page of the Symantec FileConnect site.
See also the Discovery Collector 9.0.2 ReadMeFirst file.
To export the database from Discovery Collector 9.0.2, follow these steps:
The manifest is written to the export directory and contains an entry for each data set written to the export directory, including a content-based hash.
To install Discovery Collector 10.0, follow the instructions in the Discovery Collector Installation and Planning Guide 10.0.
For guidelines on how to import the database into Discovery Collector 10.0, see "Importing a Database," which is on page 282 of the Discovery Collector User Guide 10.0.
The Review pane of the Discovery Accelerator client includes a filter option called Temporary Assignment, which lets users reserve a specified number of items in the review set. When a user selects this option, other reviewers cannot see the reserved items until the user has finished work on them.
Note that selecting the Temporary Assignment option can cause delays in Discovery Collector export runs. If Discovery Accelerator users want to browse review items without marking or tagging them or adding comments to them, we recommend that they select the All Items filter option instead.
SharePoint metadata is not available for email sourced from SharePoint in Discovery Accelerator Review.
SharePoint items with no file extension will have the extension .eml appended to its file name when exported. The exception is items with a MIME type of Outlook/MAPI on SharePoint without a file extension. These objects will be exported with the .msg file extension.
Based on the data source, the file location field in Discovery Accelerator Review will have the following format for objects archived by Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector:
|Exchange 2003, 2007, 2010||server[:port]/mailbox/folder/ ...|
|SharePoint 2003, 2007, 2010||http://server/[site path]/folder/ ...|
