Metalogix Archive Manager for Exchange 8.1.1 - Advanced Installation Guide (with Exchange 2010)

Introduction Getting started Pre-installation tasks Installing Archive Manager for Exchange Post-installation tasks Addendum

Granting super-user impersonation permissions in MS Exchange Server

 

Super-user must be granted impersonation permissions in Exchange Server just in case that you plan to access archived emails via OWA. Otherwise these permissions are not necessary.

NOTE: Archive Manager OWA support requires Exchange 2010 Server running the Windows Server 2008 (64-bit version). To install and configure the OWA extension of Archive Manager, the Archive Manager for Exchange_64bit_Extensions setup has to be downloaded and installed on Exchange Server (see the “Installation of optional features” manual).

Use the PowerShell to grand the super-user Impersonation permissions over all Exchange 2010 Servers in your environment:

1.Run the Exchange Management Shell from Start / Programs / Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 / Exchange Management Shell.

2.To grant the super-user Impersonation permissions, run the following command:

New-ManagementRoleAssignment -Name "Impersonation-MAM4Exchange" -Role "ApplicationImpersonation" -User "srv_exchange"

Assigning DCOM rights on Windows Server 2008 / 2012 / 2016 / 2019

 

When installing Archive Manager on a MS Windows Server 2008 (R2 SP1), 2012, 2016 or 2019, additional DCOM settings need to be taken into consideration.

 

To set DCOM rights on a MS Windows Server 2008 (R2 SP1), 2012, 2016 or 2019 follow these steps:

1.Right-click My Computer and in the context menu select Manage.

2.In the Computer Management window expand the Local Users and Groups node and then select the Groups node.

NOTE: If you are installing Archive Manager on a Domain Controller machine, please note that by managing your computer you will not find the Local Users and Groups node in the Computer Management window. Therefore to locate the Distributed COM Users group, use the Active Directory Users and Computers tool. To do so, click Start /Programs /Administrative Tools /Active Directory Users and Computers and simply search for the Distributed COM Users group (click on the Action menu and then click Find and search in Entire directory).

a-DCOM

3.Double-click the Distributed COM Users group in the right pane to open its Properties window and then add the super-user (srv_exchange account) to this group:

b-DCOM group

4.After adding the required account to the Distributed COM Users group you need to give this group both access and launch permissions on Component Services.

To do so, run Component Services (click Start /Settings /Control Panel /Administrative Tools /Component Services).

In the Component Services window expand the Component Services tree down to Component Services \Computers \My Computer and then right-click My Computer to open its Properties window.

c-open prop.

5.In the Properties window switch over to the COM Security tab.

In order to assign the Distributed COM Users group and NETWORK SERVICE the Access Permissions you need to click on the Edit Default button in the Access Permissions section.

d-properties1

6.In the Access Permission dialog add the Distributed COM Users group and the NETWORK SERVICE using the Add button. The Distributed COM Users group needs both local and remote Access permissions. The NETWORK SERVICE needs only local Access permissions. Then click OK.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When trying to Find Distributed COM Users and the computer is not a domain controller, change the location to local computer.

e-access perm.

7.Back in the Properties window on the COM Security tab you need to grant launch permissions. In order to grant the Distributed COM Users group and NETWORK SERVICE the Launch Permissions you need to click on the Edit Default button in the Launch and Activation Permissions section.

f-properties2

8.In the Launch and Activation Permissions dialog add the Distributed COM Users group and the NETWORK SERVICE using the Add button. The Distributed COM Users group needs both local and remote Launch and Activation Permissions. The NETWORK SERVICE needs only the local Launch and Activation Permissions:

g-launch perm.

Creating and mounting a Public Folder database

 

Before creating an Organizational Forms library, which is a system folder stored in public folders, you must create and mount a Public Folder database.

NOTE: You can skip this step if you already have the Public Folder database created. Check it in Exchange Management Console / Organization Configuration / Mailbox / Database Management. In case the Public Folder database exists, proceed with the chapter “Creating an Organizational Forms Library”.

 

To create and mount a Public Folder database:

1.Run the Exchange Management Console from Start / Programs / Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 / Exchange Management Console.

2.In the console tree, navigate to Organization Configuration > Mailbox. In the action pane, click New Public Folder Database.

a-new

 

3.On the Introduction page, complete the following fields:

oPublic folder database name  Use this box to type the name of the new public folder database.

oServer name  This box lets you specify where to create the public folder database. To specify a location click Browse to open the Select Mailbox Server dialog box. Use this dialog box to select the server where you want to create the public folder database, and then click OK.

b-name

4.On the Set Paths page, complete the following fields:

oDatabase file path  This box is automatically populated with the default path to the database file. To specify a different location or file name, type the location in the box.

oLog folder path  This box is automatically populated with the default path to the database log files. To specify a different location, type the location in the box.

oMount this database Select this check box to mount the database immediately after it is created.

c-path

 

5.On the New Public Folder Database page, review your configuration settings. Click New to create the public folder database. Click Back to make changes.

6.On the Completion page, review the following, and then click Finish to close the wizard:

oA status of Completed indicates that the wizard completed the task successfully.

oA status of Failed indicates that the task wasn't completed. If the task fails, review the summary for an explanation, and then click Back to make any configuration changes.

7.Click Finish to close the wizard.

NOTE: Provided that you have more Exchange 2010 servers, replicate the Public Folder Database to all of them.

Creating an Organizational Forms Library

 

You need to have an Organizational forms library (which is actually a system folder stored in public folders) on your MS Exchange Server, i.e. you need to have a folder under the EFORMS REGISTRY where you will publish all Archive Manager forms. If such a folder doesn’t exist yet, you have to create one.

NOTE: There can be several libraries created, one for each language.

Organizational forms library – if such exists – is located under the EFORMS REGISTRY. If the library exists under the EFORMS REGISTRY, you don’t need to create another one. In that case proceed with the chapter “Assigning owner rights to the super-user over the Organizational Forms library”.

 

To check whether an Organizational forms library exists:

1.Open Outlook.

2.On the menu bar select Tools / Forms / Choose Form. Choose Form window opens.

NOTE: In Outlook 2010/2013 click Home tab / New Items / More Items / Choose Form.

3.In the Look in down-drop box look for Organizational Forms Library, if it exists.

 

To create an Organizational forms library, follow these instructions:

1.Run the Exchange Management Shell from Start / Programs / Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 / Exchange Management Shell.

2.Create an Organizational forms library in Exchange Management Shell using the following command:

New-PublicFolder -Path "\NON_IPM_SUBTREE\EFORMS REGISTRY" -Name "Organizational Forms" -vb

Parameter “-vb” is optional; it gives the verbose output.

a-create

Check in Outlook (2007) that the public folder is shown in Tools / Forms / Choose Form / Look in down-drop box. In case of Outlook 2010/2013 check it under Home tab / New Items / More Items / Choose Form. Restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service if not (Start / Programs / Administrative Tools / Services).

Other way how to bring the Organizational Forms on Outlook 2010 (if it didn’t load up after creation), is just adding another PowerShell line Set-PublicFolder "\NON_IPM_SUBTREE\EFORMS REGISTRY\Organizational Forms" -EFormslocaleID EN-US.
