Quadrotech Archive Shuttle 10.3 - Installation Guide

Configuring Access to Office 365 Through a Proxy Server

If the migration environment needs to use a web proxy to access HTTP or HTTPS sites on the internet, then the Office 365 module needs to be configured to also route traffic that way.

1.Log in to the server or workstation where the Office 365 Module is currently deployed using the account that is used to run the Archive ShuttleOffice 365 Service.

2.Browse to the folder where the module is installed, and locate the file ‘ArchiveShuttle.Module.Office365.exe.config’ and open it in a text edit.

3.Remove the <!—and –> from the line containing the ‘defaultProxy’ and set the value to be one of:





4.Save and close the file.

Restart the Office 365 Module service using Windows Service Control Manager.

Configuring Modules to Use HOTS

HOTS is a feature with Archive Shuttle which allows for less bandwidth usage for migrations to Office 365 by combining a highly-optimised transfer system with storage of extracted data taking place in Microsoft Azure. The following diagram presents an overview of HOTS:



For migrations from legacy archives to Office 365 using HOTS the following needs to be considered:

·Using HOTS is supported for all currently supported sources, when migrating to Office 365 mailboxes or Personal Archives.

·More CPU uses might be needed on the source environment in order to create the HOTS-format data

·An Azure Storage Account must be configured and used for storing the extracted data

·All export and import modules must have been configured with the connection string to the Azure Storage Account

·A bridgehead server running the ingest and shortcut processing module should be deployed in Azure to facilitate the ingestion of the data from the Azure Storage Account.

Bridgehead Server

The bridgehead server in Azure should consist of a virtual machine with the following specification:


NOTE: Microsoft Azure machine classes change frequently so a specific machine class is not specified here.



Processors (cores)

Minimum 4, Recommended 8

CPU Speed

2 GHz


Minimum 16 GB, Recommended 32 GB

Hard disk

Minimum 2 GB of free space

PowerShell Execution Module

This module is responsible for executing PowerShell commands in the Stage 2 Workflow for a mapping. It is recommended to have one of these installed in the environment.

It is not necessary to associate this module with a particular link, that process is done automatically, and is controlled by the Core.


NOTE: This module requires .Net Framework 4.5.2.
