Install and Configure GFI MailArchiver for Exchange Server 2010- Part 2

In first article we learned how to install GFI MailArchiver for Exchange Server 2010. Now we will configure the MailArchiver (default configuration).

Click on Configure button after installing the MailArchiver.

Next, enter the product key which you received, either for evaluation or full license and click Next.

Next step is configure the archive store settings.

Note: At this step we have several options to choose the storage, I am going to choose the last one, GFI MailArchiver Database. Because at this time I don’t have SQL Server installed in the environment. I will configure the MailArchiver with Microsoft SQL Server in different articles.

Enter Admin Login name and Password and click Next. Click next and next on coming 2 steps.

Now it’s time to configure Archiving method, there are 2 type of methods available. 1: Manual Archiving and 2: Auto-Archiving (Journalling). Journalling has 2 sub options, A: All email and B: Role Based Archiving.

I am going to demonstrate second option, Auto Archiving in this article and Manual Archiving in coming articles.

First option will be selected by default “Let GFI MailArchiver create new journalling user for you to associate the mailboxes to.

Enter the admin credential and click on next, next and finish.

We have configured GFI MailArchiver successfully with default settings. Next article we will see how MailArchiver works and restore the email from the MailArchiver.
