Migrating data from Archive Manager or to the Archive Manager instance

Management Shell > Usage scenarios > Migrating data from Archive Manager or to the Archive Manager instance

The following examples demonstrate how to migrate mailboxes from/to Archive Manager instance:

Table 42: Scenario: Migrating data

Operation Command Description
Migrating data from one Archive Manager instance to another

$target = Attach-RMEArchiveManager -ServerName AMserver1.mycompany.corp -Port 5555 -Authentication Forms -UserName AM1admin -Password P@ssw0rd1 -ExportDirectory "C:\AMLoadDir"

Attach-RMEArchiveManager -ServerName AMserver2.mycompany.corp -Port 5555 -Authentication Forms -UserName AM2admin -Password P@ssw0rd2 | Get-RMEMailbox "Administrator" | Restore-RMEMailbox -TargetFolder $target

In the first line of this example, the Attach-RMEArchiveManager cmdlet connects to the target Archive Manager server. The -ExportDirectory parameter specifies the folder from which Archive Manager can load data (C:\AMLoadDir).

In the second line of this example, the Attach-RMEArchiveManager cmdlet connects to the source Archive Manager server, and then pipes the server object to the Get-RMEMailbox cmdlet.

The Get-RMEMailbox retrieves the Administrator mailbox from AMserver2, and then pipes the mailbox to the Restore-RMEMailbox cmdlet, which restores the mailbox to the Archive Manager server saved in the $target variable.

Migrating data from the source Archive Manager server to .pst on the target Archive Manager server

$AMSourceStorage = Attach-RMEArchiveManager -ServerName <ArchiveManagerServer name> -Port 80 -TargetDomain $AMdomain -UserName $AMUser -Password $AMPassword -Authentication Windows –LoadAllMailboxes

$AMSourceStorage | Get-RMEMailbox | Restore-RMEMailbox -TargetPath "C:\Exported\PST"

The Attach-RMEArchiveManager cmdlet connects to the source Archive Manager server.

In the second line of this example, Get-RMEMailbox cmdlet retrieves all the mailboxes from the source server. Then, the Restore-RMEMailbox cmdlet restores each of the mailboxes to an individual .pst file in the specified folder on the target Archive Manager server.

Migrating data from Archive Manager to on-premises Exchange

$AMSourceStorage = Attach-RMEArchiveManager -ServerName <ArchiveManagerServer> -Port 80 -TargetDomain $AMdomain -UserName AMUser -Password $AMPassword -Authentication Windows –LoadAllMailboxes

$AMSourceStorage | Get-RMEMailbox | % { Restore-RMEMailbox $_ -TargetFolder (Attach-RMEExchangeMailbox -ConnectionMethod Auto -MailboxName $_.DisplayName) }

The Attach-RMEArchiveManager cmdlet connects to the source Archive Manager server.

In the second line, Get-RMEMailbox cmdlet retrieves all the mailboxes from the source. Then, the Restore-RMEMailbox cmdlet restores each of the mailboxes to corresponding live Exchange Server mailbox.

Attach-RMEExchangeMailbox establishes a connection to the live Exchange Server mailbox you specify. In this example, mailboxes are matched by DispalyName.

Migrating data from Archive Manager to Office 365

$AMSourceStorage = Attach-RMEArchiveManager -ServerName <ArchiveManagerServer> -Port 80 -TargetDomain $AMdomain -UserName $AMUser -Password $AMPassword -Authentication Windows –LoadAllMailboxes

$O365Storage = Attach-RMEExchangeOnline -MicrosoftOnlineServicesID $O365UserName -Password $O365Password -ConnectionMethod Auto

$AMSourceStorage | Get-RMEMailbox | % {$O365Mailbox = $O365Storage | Get-RMEMailbox $_.DisplayName

Restore-RMEMailbox $_ -TargetFolder $O365Mailbox}

The Attach-RMEArchiveManager cmdlet connects to the source Archive Manager server.

In the second line, Attach-RMEExchangeOnline connects to the target Office 365.

The Get-RMEMailbox cmdlet retrieves all the mailboxes from the source. Then, the Restore-RMEMailbox cmdlet restores each of the mailboxes to corresponding Office 365 mailbox. In this example, mailboxes are matched by DispalyName.

Migrating data from Archive Manager to Office 365 with the CSV mapping file

$Source_To_Target_Map = Import-Csv $sourceCsvFile | ? {$_.SrcMailbox}

$AMSourceStorage = Attach-RMEArchiveManager -ServerName $AMServer -Port 80 -Authentication Windows

$O365Storage = Attach-RMEExchangeOnline -MicrosoftOnlineServicesID $O365UserName -Password $O365Password -ConnectionMethod Auto

foreach($obj in $Source_To_Target_Map) { $AMailbox = $AMSourceStorage | Get-RMEMailbox $obj.SrcMailbox $O365Mailbox = $O365Storage | Get-RMEMailbox $obj.TrgMailbox $AMailbox | Restore-RMEMailbox -TargetFolder $O365Mailbox }

 

Example of CSV file:

SrcMailbox,TrgMailbox

“Erika.Robinson”, “E_Robinson”

“Gregory.Anderson” , “G_Anderson”

In the first line of this example, you import the specified CSV file.

In the second line of this example, the Attach-RMEArchiveManager cmdlet connects to the source Archive Manager server.

The Attach-RMEExchangeOnline connects to the target Office 365.

Then, Get-RMEMailbox cmdlet retrieves all the mailboxes from the source and from the target. In this example, mailboxes are matched according to the specified the specified CSV file.

Then, the Restore-RMEMailbox cmdlet restores each of the mailboxes to corresponding Office 365 mailbox.

Migrating PST contents to the target Archive Manager server (Attach-RMEPersonalFolders 'c:\ExportArchive\PST\AmeliaSpringdee.pst' -IsSource).Root | Restore-RMEFolder -TargetFolder ((Attach-RMEArchiveManager -ServerName 'ArchiveManager' -Authentication Windows -ExportDirectory "\\ArchiveManager\c$\Quest\ArchiveManager\Export" | Get-RMEMailbox 'AmeliaSpring').Root

The Attach-RMEPersonalFolders establishes a connection to the specified .pst on the source.

The Attach-RMEArchiveManager cmdlet connects to the target Archive Manager server. Then, Restore-RMEFolder restores the .pst contents to the specified target folder.

About Web Interface

Web Interface > About Web Interface

Web Interface is a Recovery Manager for Exchange feature that makes a single instance of Recovery Manager for Exchange remotely accessible to users across an intranet. When it is installed, the Web Interface enables an intranet user to remotely access Recovery Manager for Exchange via a Web browser to preview messages in registered storages and search, restore, and export data.

The key features and benefits of the Web Interface include:

  • Remote access to the Recovery Manager for Exchange functionality. Allows users to connect to Recovery Manager for Exchange via a Web browser and remotely preview messages in registered storages and perform data search, restore, and export operations.
  • Intranet-wide availability. Makes a single instance of Recovery Manager for Exchange available across an intranet, eliminating the need to install and administer Recovery Manager for Exchange on multiple computers.
  • Configurable access. Allows the Recovery Manager for Exchange administrator to restrict access to the Web Interface so that only specific intranet users can access and use it.

This chapter provides an overview of the Web Interface elements and describes how to connect to and use the Web Interface.

Deploying Web Interface

Web Interface > Deploying Web Interface

Before you proceed with the Web Interface installation, make sure the user account you want to use has sufficient permissions to perform that operation.

To install the Web Interface

  1. Run the Autorun.exe file located in the root of the Recovery Manager for Exchange CD.
  2. In the Recovery Manager for Exchange CD Autorun window, go to the Setup tab, click Install next to Quest Recovery Manager for Exchange, and step through the Setup Wizard.
  3. On the Choose Setup Type page, select Custom, then click Next.
  4. On the Custom Setup page, make sure the Web Interface component is selected for installation.
  5. On the Specify Web Site Settings page, specify the Application Poll account credentials under the Application pool identity. This account must be a member of the local Administrators group.
  6. Step through the wizard to complete the installation.

Make sure you take note of the Web site and virtual directory you specify in the wizard, because they will make up the URL at which remote users can access the Web Interface, as follows:

http://<WebSite>/<VirtualDirectory>

The Web Interface output folder you specify in the wizard is a location on the Recovery Manager for Exchange computer that stores files generated during the restore and export operations performed in the Web Interface.
