Metalogix Archive Manager for Files 8.3 - Auditing Guide


Auditing server – installed as a feature of Archive Manager for Exchange / Files – allows administrator to log all actions made in the Enterprise Manager console.

In case of Archive Manager for Exchange it logs also user actions in the email archive, i.e. administrator has an overview of user actions as archiving, retrieving, restoring and even performing fulltext searches (in Outlook and ArchiveWeb).

This manual describes step-by-step all actions you have to take to set up the Auditing correctly. The steps are as follows:

1.If installed with a light setup (not a package), it is necessary to manually create a separate database for Auditing.

NOTE: Archive Manager installation package creates the database automatically.


2.Install the Auditing component.

3.Configure Auditing in the Configuration tool.

4.Enable auditing in the Enterprise Manager. Ensure that the computer name and port, where the auditing service can be found, are correct.

5.Specify Audit users.

6.For version 4.2 and higher – check the Auditing service configuration file

<Common Files>\PAM\Services\PAMAuditing\PAMAuditingSv.exe.config

Ensure that the service is using secure channels:


             <channel ref="tcp" name="PamAuditing" port="7783" secure="true" />



7.Start the Auditing service if not running. If you have made changes to its configuration in the previous step, you will have to restart it.

8.In case of Archive Manager for Exchange: Ensure that the ExchangePamWS has anonymous access turned off and Windows integrated authentication turned on.

The above listed points are describe in detail further in this manual.


In case that Auditing is installed with the light Archive Manager for Exchange/Files setup (and NOT with the installation package), a separate  database for Auditing must be available before installation of the Auditing feature. Supported databases:

oSQL Server 2012 or higher

oOracle 12c or higher

The database will be configured after the installation using the Configuration tool (as described later).

At the package installation, Auditing database is created automatically.


Auditing feature is installed when you select Auditing during the installation of Archive Manager for Exchange. In case of Files Archive Manager for Files Auditing feature is installed automatically.

Auditing can be installed on the Archive Manager server or on a separate machine.





Auditing is configured in these steps:

1.Database and log targets configuration (in Configuration tool)

2.Enabling auditing (in Enterprise Manager)

3.Specifying audit users

4.Auditing service configuration (version 4.2 and higher)

5.Starting the auditing service

6.Configuring ExchangePamWS (only for Archive Manager for Exchange)
