Running an Exchange Mailbox Agent Content Indexing Job

This procedure describes the general steps for running an content indexing job. You run the job at the default subclient level.

Tip: If you have access nodes spread out across geographical locations, you can limit the content indexing job to access nodes within a specific geographic location.


  1. From the CommCell Console, expand Client Computers > client > agent > set.
  2. Select the Content tab in the bottom portion of the right pane
  3. Right-click the subclient, and then click Run Content Indexing.

    The Content Indexing Options dialog box appears.

  4. On the Job Initiation tab, define whether the job runs:
    • Immediately.
    • At a scheduled time.
    • Automatically at the time interval that you specify.

      The default is interval is 30 minutes, but you can select a time interval that is between 15 minutes and 1440 minutes (24 hours).

  5. Optional: On the CI Access Nodes tab, if you want to run the job on an access node other than the one that you defined for the agent, do the following:
    1. Click Add.

      The Select Clients/Client Groups dialog box appears.

    2. From the Exclude list, select the access node that you want to use, and then click Include.

      You can add more than one access node.

    3. Click OK.

    Any access nodes that you configure on the Access Nodes tab override the access nodes that are configured at the agent level.

  6. Optional: To set advanced job options, click Advanced.
  7. Optional: To run your archive options from a command line interface, click Save As Script.
  8. Click OK.

    If you chose to run the job immediately, the content indexing job starts now.

    If you chose to run the job according to a schedule, the content indexing job runs according to the schedule that you defined.

    If you chose to run the job automatically at timed intervals, the content indexing job starts when the number of minutes that you specify have passed, and in the specified intervals thereafter.
