Auditor Help: Selecting for Exchange

  1. Enter the name of an Exchange 5.5 server, an Exchange 2000/2003 domain controller, or click Auto-Discover... to query for directory information.
    Note! Notes: For Exchange 2000, enter the domain controller on which Forest Prep was run for best results. In a multi-site Exchange organization, it is very important that the server specified receives up-to-date directory replication information for all the sites.
    For Exchange 5.5, Ecora collects three levels of information regardless of selecting one server or many:
    • Exchange Organization - this information is on every Exchange server in the organization and provides global settings. This information is collected from only one server.
    • Site - this information is on every Exchange server in a site. All Exchange servers in a site contain the same site information; however Exchange servers in different sites contain different information. Since all this information is replicated, Ecora collects this information from only one server.
    • Server - Since this information is unique on each server, Ecora collects this information from each selected server.

    Exchange Collection Parameters
  2. Indicate whether or not you would like to gather Recipients, Detailed Mailbox Information, Public Folder Information, and/or File Attribute Information (database size, etc.).
    Note! Notes: Collecting and reporting this additional information takes significantly longer.
    All attributes pertaining to Detailed Mailbox Information are identified in two locations in the Exchange display model:
    For 5.5 - sites\Recipient Containers\Mailbox\Additional Mailbox information
    For 2000/2003 - Users and Groups\Users\Additional Mailbox information
    The attributes are:
    • Deleted message count
    • Deleted messages (KB)
    • Full mailbox directory name
    • Last logon on user
    • Last logoff time
    • Last logon time
    • Mailbox display name
    • Mailbox size (KB)
    • Storage limit status
    • Total associated items
    • Total items
  3. If you do not wish to use the default logon, select a profile using the ... button then the drop-down list.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Use the plus signs to expand the group tree to locate servers.
  6. Click in any checkbox to select that server (or group).
    Helpful Hint Tip: The tree selection "cascades" - so selecting a group selects all servers in that group unless you expand the group to unselect servers.
  7. Click in any checkbox to select additional domains in the right pane.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Proceed with reporting.
