I was trying ingest some PST to EV, some users don't have the Archive in EV yet. EV version is 18.104.22.16898
Follow Rob's instructions in the link:
I got error:
Error parsing command file: c:\eatemp\ep18.ini, error follows:
Line number in error: 33
Section in error: PST
Attribute in error: VaultName
Value in error: mtuser4 test
Error parsing the config (.ini) file
This is my ini looks like, if I change to a existing archive if will succeed.
SiteName = xxxxx
CancelMbxAutoArchive = False
ConcurrentMigrations = 10
IncludeDeletedItems = True
SetPSThidden = false
SetPSTReadOnly = false
CompactPST = false
DeletePST = True
FileName = c:\eatemp\mtuser1 test.pst
VaultName = mtuser4 test
RetentionCategory = Default Retention Category
ServerComputerName = xxxxx
MergePSTFolders = false
That means I have create the Archive first in EV, is a script can enable the Archive?
You can manually create the archives in EV Admin Console under Archives - Shared and then use SQL to update the archives such
--This is to set the archive to be a structured archive
SET Structured = '1' WHERE ArchiveName = 'Test User'
--This is to Set the ArchiveLimitSize to 0 i.e. Unlimited
SET ArchiveLimitSize = '0' WHERE ArchiveName = 'Test User'
--This is to change from Shared Archive to Mailbox Archive
SET Type = '9' WHERE ArchiveName = 'Test User'
--Shared Archive = 5
--Mailbox Archive = 9
--This is to view and check the changes above
Select * from ArchiveView
where ArchiveName = 'Test User'
Once SQL is done correctly, the archives that you created in Archives - Shared - will be listed in Archives - Exchange Mailbox
Once done you can then ingest PSTs to this archives from the PST Import process the usual way.
Hope this helps.
The link that Rob posted is to ingest PSTs into an archive that is already created I believe and not to create an archive using EVPM.
There's a technote to enable an archive for a mailbox user - but not to create one as a shared mailbox - I have not come across one to be honest.
