Sounds strange doesn't it? Exchange Journaling, the process used by thousands of Exchange customers all over the world to ensure that have a defensible and reliable eDiscovery position, has been called into question by... Microsoft!

So why would Microsoft state that Journaling is insecure?

Microsoft consider that any data that leaves Exchange is inherently insecure as it no longer resides in the Exchange store. On this basis, that’s any data not in the store: mailboxes in Outlook cached mode, messages viewed on many common mobile devices, OWA 2013 when it caches messages, PST files (yes we all know about PST's). The reality is that "insecure" really boils down to your security practices and perimeters, and your comfort with data extending beyond it.

The other side to this is handling the volumes of messages generated as a result of enabling Exchange Journaling; it can be substantial. Enterprise Vault has customers generating in excess...

A common perception about IT professionals and lawyers is that they do not work together cooperatively.  Ask an IT professional about lawyers and you may get a puzzled or even a dirty look.  Indeed, you may not even get an answer as the IT professional silently walks away.

That in fact happened to me a few times while attending Gartner Data Center in Las Vegas this past week.  My colleagues invited me – a lawyer – to attend this IT-focused event.  The purpose for doing so was to better understand the most pressing demands IT professionals face with respect to eDiscovery.

Happily, most of the attendees I spoke with did not walk away silently once they understood that I was an attorney.  Many were intrigued that I would attend the conference and opened up to discuss their eDiscovery concerns.  I was fascinated by what they shared.  Two of the most common concerns were:

  1. Legal’s refusal to involve IT on...

In case you had not seen the new best practice guides posted in the 'articles' section of Connect, I wanted to make you aware of two new best practice guides which we have just published for File System Archiving and for SharePoint archiving. The content has been gathered through many individuals both within Symantec and directly from our partners and customers. If you are running FSA or SharePoint archiving, or considering deploying either, I would definitely recommend giving these a read. The guides can be located here:

We have had a hole in our Enterprise Vault training catalogue to date by not having a dedicated File System Archiving course. FSA is touched on in the standard Exchange course but it does not give you the knowledge you need to know to install, configure, manage and troubleshoot.

We have now developed a specific 4-day instructor led course dedicated to FSA. The first public teach will be in the Symantec, Reading, UK offices March 15th-18th. Registration is now open here.

The course is aimed at customers, consultants, support engineers, SE's or generally anyone that has a vested interest in File System Archiving. The full course description can be found ...

Well, it's been too long since the last blog entry. I hope to make amends with that in the coming weeks and hope to be able to complete my series of blogs detailing the new FSA features that we delivered in Enterprise Vault v9.

In this blog, I want to focus on the second new FSAUtility option - bulk recall. Like with the placeholder migration blog I wrote here , you may be thinking that FSAUtility already had this functionality. You would be partially correct.

Existing versions of FSAUtility have the -t bulk restore option. We have introduced a new -b bulk recall option. Restore? Recall? What's the difference you may be asking. Let me explain.

Bulk restore will use the Enterprise Vault databases to work out what is needed to be restored to the file server. If you gave it a path of...

I’m very pleased to announce that we will very shortly be making available a production Enterprise Vault client for Outlook 2010.

The EV 9.0.1 client will be made available earlier than the full 9.0.1 release (which is scheduled for release later in the year) and will be released on the 22ndOctober 2010. On this date the EV 9.0.1 client will be uploaded to Symantec FileConnect and will be available to download from Monday 25thOctober onwards.

The early release 9.0.1 client will be fully supported for production use and will offer support for Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010 (32bit and 64bit). It will be supported against EV Server versions 8.0.4 and 9.0. It will also offer English language support only (full internationalisation will only occur in time for the full 9.0.1 kit release later in the year). More information, including full documentation, will be included in the client kit.

Over the coming weeks I'm going to be writing a series of blogs detailing the enhancements to Enterprise Vault File System Archiving in v9. While these may not be big headline grabbing features, I think our existing customers will find them extremely valuable and beneficial. After all, the enhancements that we have delivered for FSA in v9 have all been directly driven by customer requests and feedback.

I'm going to start off by talking about placeholder migration. Once you have deployed FSA, the ability to easily manage the archived content and to be able to move placeholders around (without recall) for things like hardware refreshes or share re-organisations is key. Now some of you may be thinking that doesn't FSAUtility already have the ability to move placeholders? The answer is yes it does, but it has specific use cases associated with it, which are not appropriate for some of the more common migration tasks.

Let me explain...
