Additional Information

·Archive Manager for Files must be installed on the Windows file server where archiving is planned.

·For remote archiving (Windows shares, NetApp or VNX), we recommend installing the software on a dedicated server.

·Installations on Domain Controllers are not supported

·The software installs web applications into the Default Web Site by default. This can cause conflict with other applications like Microsoft CRM or SharePoint. To change the installation website, manual changes are required after the installation. Please contact support in such cases.

·The application, log files and cache folders require 10 GB of HDD space. The space for the database and the file store must be calculated from the amount of the archived messages.

·Metalogix Archive Manager is fully supported in a virtualized environment.
