MessageStats 7.6 - Deployment Guide

MessageStats Architecture Overview Planning for Deployment Deployment Recommendations and Solutions

1. Establish the Trust Relationship

In order to use an alternate account for connecting to the Exchange organization, at a minimum a one-way Trust must be established.

2. Create the MessageStats Service Account

To connect to the Exchange organization within Domain B, you must create an account within Domain B and grant the account the proper permissions.

3. Configure Permissions, Set Credentials, and Create Gathering

Since the MessageStats is to be installed in Domain A (HP ECS), you must configure MessageStats to use alternate credentials for connecting to the Exchange organization in Domain B.

2
Select Connect.
5
Select Specify Explicit Credentials and enter the domain\username of the alternate account (such as DomainB\QMSTATS) and the password.

To run a gathering using the new connection to the Exchange organization in Domain B, perform the following steps:

2
Click Next through the wizard to display the Task Credentials page.
3
Clear the Use Default Configuration check box at the bottom and specify the alternate account that you created to connect to the Exchange organization in Domain B (DomainB\QMSTATS)

Manually Creating the MessageStats Database in a Distributed Installation

In some distributed installation scenarios, due to security considerations, you might be unable to run the MessageStats installation wizard on the SQL server. In this case, you can use the MessageStats database creation script (MessageStatsDatabase.sql) to manually create the SQL database.

You must also manually create the necessary security groups to allow access to the MessageStats database.

5
Right-click Databases and select New Database.
11
Select the Query Menu and select Execute.

This will create all the MessageStats database tables and views.

Security groups are needed to assign rights to the database. You can use either local or global groups. The groups must be named MessageStats Admin and MessageStats Web.

If the MessageStats database resides on a SQL cluster, you must create the groups in Active Directory.

2
Right-click Logins and choose New Login.
3
Click Search and locate the MessageStats Admin group. Click OK.
4
Select Windows Authentication.
5
For the Default Database, select MessageStats from the drop-down list.

2
Right-click Logins and select New Login.
3
Click Search and find the MessageStats Web group. Click OK.
4
Select Windows Authentication.
5
For the Default Database, select MessageStats from the drop-down list.
