Exchange System Discovery Tool Overview

The Exchange System Discovery Tool is a non-intrusive and highly secure tool that examines and analyzes selected mailboxes and reports on the collected message data.  The tool output is a set  of reports created from the statistics generated from a zip file uploaded to the CommVault Cloud where it staged on a virtual machine using Commvault.

The  Exchange System Discovery Tool can be used to:

  • Perform archive prediction to reclaim space after the archive.
  • Provide data protection estimates and backup window timeframes.
  • Analyze and track mailbox usage and distribution.

The key features of the tool include:

  • The ability to run on a proxy without any load on the Exchange server, provided the proxy is on the same domain as the Exchange server.
  • The ability to discover more than one Exchange server at a time.
  • The ability to run multiple instances of the tool simultaneously.

How It Works

The tool output is a set  of reports created from the statistics generated from a zip file uploaded to the CommVault Cloud where it is staged on a virtual machine using Commvault.
