11.27.1.PST import job configuration
Most configuration here is the same as in Email archive job configuration, so there will be some links pointing to that section.
Go to Email archive -> Archive -> Jobs. Click on + new. Select PST import from the Available jobs dropdown list. Name your job and click on Add.
On the job’s configuration page go through the following sections:
✓ Database settings
Select an already configured connection from the dropdown list. Here the metadata will be stored. For further information on how to set database connections please refer to section Databases.
✓ Scheduling settings
In this step, the running time(s) of the PST import job must be selected. It is possible either to select a scheduler from the list or to create a new scheduler via create new … option from the dropdown list. For more information about how to set schedulers refer to the section Schedules.
✓ Storage settings
Choose an already configured storage from the dropdown list. The processed binaries will be stored here. For more information on how to set storages check section Storages.
✓ Retention settings
Choose an already configured retention time from the dropdown list. The processed PSTs will be stored during this time in the storage, and it will be impossible to delete them from there. It is highly recommended to select a retention time that is required by the law of your country. For more information about how to set retentions check section Retentions.
✓ Include folders
PST import job is crawling the entire mailbox or recursive folder structures from the PST files for further processing. Before you enter the folder name(s) to be crawled, it is necessary to select the folder filtering type. The folder filtering type is described in more details in this section.
✓ PST processing settings
Root folder – if you specify a folder here, emails from the root folders will be imported into the folder defined here.
Prefix – all of the PST files will be imported into a folder defined here.
✓ Exclude folders
With this function, you may set which folders/subfolders should not be imported. If you would not like to exclude any folder from the process, you can skip these settings.
The folders may be excluded using one of the available methods: a) They may be added manually via the + new option; b) they may be imported in one of the available file formats via the import option. Folder excluding is described in more details in this section.
✓ Item filtering
This configuration enables filtering among your items by their message class. Using this filter, the user will be allowed to select different document types, such as mails, documents, contacts etc. to be imported.
✓ Notification settings
Select here, when you will need to get notification emails from the PST import job. It is possible to set here if you need such a notification email always/never, or you need it only in case that an error/warning occurred during the importing process − for example, if the import of one or more items failed, then you may get a notification email about this error. Into the Recipient list textbox insert the email address(es) of the person(s), who will get such notifications. Notifications should be used if the administrator does not use the monitoring feature.
✓ Resource settings
Set the value, which will determine how many items will be processed simultaneously by the email archive job. The recommended value is “2”.
