Downloading the Offline Client

To download the Offline Client, go to the Download Tools page on the Administration Web Site and click the Offline Client link.

Enabling offline access to the archive

The Offline Client allows users to reconstruct stubbed messages with Microsoft Outlook while offline, using the Outlook Form. This requires that the Outlook Form is configured on each client. See the Reconstructing messages using the Archive Manager Outlook Form section in the Archive Manager User Guide.

The Offline Client also requires that you disable anonymous access and select Windows Authentication as the authentication mode. To change the authentication mode, see Authentication modes.

Adding administrative templates

In order to allow users reconstruct their stubbed messages offline, you must specify the Archive Manager Web Site address as described in the following section:

NOTE: Keep in mind that all policies are applied only after the time interval specified in the Group Policy refresh interval for computers policy. The policy is located in Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | Group Policy and User Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | Group Policy.
In the Run box, type mmc, then click OK.
From the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.
Click Finish/OK.
Browse to the ArchiveManagerOfflineClient.adm file, which can be found in your Archive Manager Installation directory under <archive_manager_home>\Website\Tools\OfflineClient.exe.
Select the file and click Open. The template will appear in the Add/Remove Templates dialog. Click Close.
Browse to POLICY_NAME | User Configuration | Policies | Administrative Templates | Classic Administrative Templates | Quest Archive Manager | Client Adjustments | Cached Mode Settings and select the Cached Mode Settings node.
In the right pane, double-click the Set the Archive Manager URL.
In the policy's Properties dialog, select the Enabled option and specify the Web URL in the following format: http://<archivemanager>/, which must be based on your archive manager settings.
Click OK to apply your changes.
Set the Archive Manager URL: In order to use the Archive Manager Offline Client, you must set the URL for the Archive Manager Web Site. Users will not be able to override settings specified by the policy.
Set automatic synchronization frequency: Users need to synchronize their cache to keep them up-to-date. This can be done automatically. Using the Set automatic synchronization frequency policy, you can specify how frequently the contents of cache will automatically be synchronized with the archive. Users will not be able to override settings specified by the policy.
Set the Offline Content Age: Local cache lets you set an age limit for messages to be cached so you can avoid caching outdated messages. The age limit can be specified automatically by the policy. Users will not be able to override settings specified by the policy.
Set synchronization batch size: To avoid the client computer overload, the Offline Client will uses batch processing so it does not synchronize too many messages or attachments at a time. Users will not be able to override settings specified by the policy.
In the Group Policy Object Editor, browse to User Configuration | Administrative Templates | Quest Archive Manager Settings | Client Adjustments | Cached Mode Settings.
Click OK to apply your changes.

Deploying the Archive Manager Offline Client

The Offline Client component must be deployed on each user's workstation to provide offline reconstruction of stubbed messages. You can use the Group Policy Software Installation Extension to deploy the Offline Client on workstations.

Note that software installation requires administrative rights on the workstation. If users are not allowed to install software on their workstations, assign the installation package to users using group policies.
