This page provides steps on migrating a Veritas Enterprise Vault Archive to Mimecast using the Simply Migrate Management Shell. To ensure that the Simply Migrate client is correctly configured, follow the steps outlined in the Post-Installation Guide.


Migrating a User's Archive


To migrate a single Enterprise Vault archive to a Mimecast user archive, the following cmdlet syntax is used:

New-SmJob -Source EnterpriseVault -SourceInput 12D1D53C97908DD408A3E0702B2810A0E1110000evserver1 -Target Mimecast -TargetOutput user@domain.com -tags 'EV Archive Migration' -Batchid 1

This migrates everything found in the archive ‘12D1D53C97908DD408A3E0702B2810A0E1110000evserver1‘ to the Mimecast archive. The folder structure in the users Enterprise Vault archive will be reflected in the users Mimecast archive.


Migrating Multiple User Archives


A script is provided to report on all Enterprise Vault archives, and resolve them against user email addresses and creates a job created for all user archives found in Enterprise Vault. The script outputs a .CSV file that can be used to automate job creation as shown below:

Get-SmEVStatistics -archiveTypesSelected UsersOnly -lookupEmailInAD -pathToReport c:\temp\EVData.csv


$EvData = Import-CSV c:\temp\EVData.csv


foreach ($uA in $EvData) {
New-SmJob -Source EnterpriseVault -SourceInput $($uA.ArchiveID) -Target Mimecast -TargetOutput $($uA.Email) -BatchId 1


Migrating Journal Data


Enterprise Vault Journal data can also be migrated to the Mimecast archive. Use the same script mentioned above to migrate journal data as shown below.  The script will split the journal jobs into monthly segments.

Get-SmEVStatistics -archiveTypesSelected JournalOnly -splitJournals -pathToReport c:\temp\EVJData.csv


$EvData = Import-CSV c:\temp\EVData.csv


foreach ($uA in $EvData) {
New-SmJob -Source EnterpriseVault -SourceInput $($uA.ArchiveID) -DateFrom $($uA.DateFrom) -DateTo $($uA.DateTo) -Target Mimecast -TargetOptions Journal -BatchId 1
