Archive Manager 5.4 - Installation and Configuration Guide for Exchange

Deployment considerations for Exchange System requirements Hardware recommendations Pre-installation preparations Installing and configuring Archive Manager Upgrading/Uninstalling Archive Manager Post-installation tasks Appendix A: Attachment store types Appendix B: Installing the Archive Retrieve tool for BlackBerry users

Distributed model

The Archive Manager distributed model is best used when an organization has connected sites with more than 100 users at each, or low bandwidth connections with potentially fewer users.

To estimate the requirements of different site configurations, see the Hardware recommendations chapter of this guide.

Mixed model

Archive Manager can also be run as a combination of the preceding models. This is useful, for example, when the distributed model is not applicable, as with a satellite site of 50 users with no email server, which does not require a dedicated Archive Manager server.

Archive Manager can be considered a "thin client" solution because it uses a web browser for access.

By choosing not to use the installable Microsoft Exchange ’organizational form,’ the bandwidth requirements for Archive Manager’s "clientless" stubbing of message content can also be reduced considerably over the default installation, making Archive Manager highly effective in low-bandwidth environments.

Exchange journaling

Microsoft Exchange includes optional journaling features that can help an organization meet compliance standards, but that are not installed by default. The Pre-installation preparations chapter in this Guide suggests that you enable Exchange Journaling, and you can refer to Microsoft’s documentation for installation and configuration information.

Archive Manager lets you configure MAPI data loaders to offload messages from Exchange Journal mailboxes into Archive Manager. The installation procedures in this Guide include steps to configure MAPI data loaders for use with Exchange Journal folders, or you can later refer to the Data Loaders chapter of the Archive Manager Administration Guide for the procedure.
