Running an Exchange Mailbox Content Indexing Job On-demand

Typically, content indexing jobs are run according to the schedule defined in the server plan. This procedure describes the general steps for running a content indexing job on-demand.

You can run the job at the backup set, subclient, or mailbox level. This procedure describes running an content indexing job from the subclient and mailbox levels.

Before You Begin

  • Each access node that is used to run content indexing jobs must have the Exchange Mailbox application, and the Web Server package installed. If you did not install the Web Server package when you installed the application, you can install it separately.
  • You must install the Content Analyzer package and configure the Content Analyzer cloud for each content indexing access node (proxy client)
  • You must create the Exchange User mailbox plan or the Exchange Journal mailbox plan with the appropriate entity types selected from the entities list. You must enable the entity detection feature in either the Exchange user mailbox plan or the Exchange journal mailbox plan (whichever one applies to your mailbox environment).

    Note: On-demand previews of messages are available whether or not content indexing is configured.

Procedure

  1. In the navigation pane, expand Solutions > Exchange, and then click the Exchange_Mailbox_server.
  2. In the Agents area, click Exchange Mailbox.
  3. In the Content area, click the backup_set.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • To content index the subclient, in the upper-right, click Run content indexing.
    • ContentStore Mailbox and Journal Mailbox: To content index a mailbox, in the Actions column, click the action button action_button, and then click Run content indexing.
    • User Mailbox: To content index a mailbox, select User from the backup_set list, then in the Actions column, click the action button action_button, and then click Run content indexing.
    • User Mailbox: To archive all mailboxes that belong to an AD group or database, select the group_type from the backup_set list, then in the Actions column, click the action button action_button, and then click Run content indexing.

    The content indexing job starts running immediately.
