I'm very very happy to tell you of a great new feature we are delivering in Enterprise Vault 10.0.2. 

In this release we are delivering Exchange Archiving Reports which are generated whenever Exchange Mailbox archiving takes place. The reports are available during and at the end of the run. 3 reports are generated, brief, full and .csv.  Each report will detail every mailbox on the Exchange server, and what archiving(if any) took place.  Below is screenshot of a brief report and attached is examples of brief, full and .csv. The full report has many more columns, the .csv is a close representation of full but means you could put the data into excel if you wish and process it accordingly. 

In addition to these reports, a new event log entry is generated at the end of the run giving you a summary of what took place.  The summary is also available from the properties of the archiving task and you can access these reports via that or on disk as well.  If you take a look at the attach files you'll see that the fields all have "hover over" text explaining what they mean, in addition to this the report will link to a tech note giving further details.

We are making final tweaks and would love to hear your feedback as soon as possible.  Do you like it? does it have the content you want?  do you understand the content, what questions might you have that we need to explain in a tech note?  Please reply to this post with your thoughts.

This was one of many requests I worked alongside Engineering with and I'm really happy to see the comments so far. Believe me you wouldn't realise how much time we discussed over the content! I think this will help all EV customers and help demystify EV, and finally people get to know when archiving is finished. Sometimes it's the little things in life :)

I think I'll got in the last four years nearby 50 request from different customer about reporting the scheduled archiving task.

Sounds Great! Thanks!

Would you be able to let us know a rough guestimation when 10.0.2 will be released?

Thanks for this great feature. This ist EXACTLY and MORE as we expected to see.

Looking forward the the release.

There is nothing which could not be enhanced, but currently I have no idea to add

Mike as far as improved functionality is concerned it would be great if the enhancements could bring me breakfast in bed, on the weekend only of course.

Apart from the convenience I know this is nothing your various competitors have?

Hi Mike and Bruce,

What competitors? cheeky

Would this report also be available in SQL reporting?

Thank you, Gertjan, MCSE, MCITP,MCTS, SCS, STS

Hi Gertjan,

No the report won't be available via SQL reporting.  I'm not an expert in SQL reporting to know whether it might be possible to simply link from SQL reporting to these reports?

In terms of dates for 10.0.2 I'll get back to you on what we can officially say at this time.
