OnePass for Exchange Mailbox (Classic)

Note: If you are transitioning from the Exchange Mailbox Archiver Agent, see Transitioning from the Exchange Mailbox Archiver Agent to OnePass for Exchange Mailbox (Classic).

The OnePass for Exchange Mailbox (Classic) is a comprehensive solution that incorporates the traditional backup and message archiving in a single operation. You can move the mailbox messages to a secondary storage and use these messages to function as both backup and archive copy. Stubs are retained on the production storage. The stubs point to the messages that were moved as part of the backup. The archived messages are available for quick and easy retrieval by administrators and end users.

In addition, this integrated agent can age messages and stubs selectively to reclaim space on the primary storage and the secondary storage based on message age in the mailbox.

Terminology

Affinity

An association between two entities used in Automatic Discovery scenarios. For example, automatic discovery of mailboxes by database affinity implies the mailbox is included in the selected database.

Archiving

Archiving is a process of periodically moving unused or infrequently used mailbox messages to a secondary storage. Stubs replace the archived messages in the mailbox, thereby reducing the space consumption of the mailbox.

Data Recovery

  • The archived message can be recovered in any of the following three methods:
  • Browse and Recovery of archived messages using the CommCell Console.
  • Recovery of archived messages from stubs using third-party applications. For more details see, Outlook Add-In.
  • Recovery of archived messages from any remote location using Outlook Web App. For details see, Outlook Web App.
  • Recovery of archived messages from any mobile device through which they can access Outlook Web App. For details see, Universal Access.

Database

Includes all operational elements of the Exchange Server such as Stores and Transaction Logs.

Non-Exchange Server

A computer other than the Exchange Server where OnePass for Exchange Mailbox (Classic) might be located. Using a non-Exchange Server often results in less overhead on the Exchange Server during backup and restore operations.

Persistent Recovery

Multiple stub recoveries are submitted to the Job Controller as one job called a Persistent Recovery job. The job will wait for some time in order to allow other stub recovery requests being submitted on the same client to be batched into the same job.

Stubs

Stubs are placeholders of the original message after it has been migrated to the secondary storage.
