This guide provides steps to get a list of user archives from Metalogix Archive Manager Exchange Edition. This is a precursor to extracting from Archive Manager.
Creating a Job
Mimecast Simply Migrate comes with a cmdlet that lists all user archives from Archive Manager. The following is an example of getting the user archives into a CSV file. It doesn’t log to the Mimecast Simply Migrate database, but can be used to:
- Create a CSV file showing relevant data about archives.
- Put into a variable to use in a migration script.
Get-SmMetalogixMailBox -ExcludeDeleted -DisplayName Paul | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path r:\temp\metalogix.csv
- ExcludeDeleted: Indicates we will not query Metalogix for archives with deleted mailboxes. By excluding this attribute, you receive a view of all archives including those with deleted mailboxes.
- DisplayName: Adding a string here uses this as a filter for user archives where the string appears. In the above example, we have chosen the name "Paul".
