Enterprise Vault Users exchange Mail box - Users who leave and return regularly A simple Process
Hi Guys Newbie Ev user here,
OK i have searched the forums for the alst hr finding some great information about on both importing and exporting variations from exchnage and EV admin console. I believe i have hit a point where i am jsut overloaded with information and am unsure on how to apply the procedures to my unique problem. Iw as wondering if i could get some assistance with mapping out teh following senario.
We have users that come and go regualary and we want to use a method for short returning users withint 6-12months (users who will not be returning at all or lets say over a year we will be archiving all email that i seem to have som grasp on).
So we use Active directory accounts in link mode for our mail (log story short for fail over ot parent compnay overseas etc) now all we want to be able to is ;
Disable users account in our AD and move to a leavers group
Users linked ad account (that is a memebr of the EV group policy) move to leavers group
*** (the part im struggling with***) now the Active directory account that has the EV policy do i need to jsut remove them form that group so no mail is being archive ?
Export exchange mail to .pst (understanding that archive EV mail with leave pointers or shortcut and will be inaccessable) Remove mail box in exchange through the power shell.
Then delete users mail box.
Dont know why my boss wants to do it this way as i feel its double space as there is part of archive on Ev and the unbarchived in pst file... Anyhoooo :)
The problem i ahve above is mainly around the Active direcotry account that has the EV policy applied do i jsut remove them from the group have i missed any steps out ?
in regards to restoring the returing users mailbox - I'm not certain what to do after re-enabling account and creating a new mailbox do i then jsut add hem back into the EV group thye were in and it willo start acrhiving again and also give access againt old archived information on EV store ?
