Today, I’m going to continue to through how to configure Archiving Server Role.
On Lync Front End Server, go to Lync Server Control Panel. At the CSCP, click Monitoring and Archiving, and then click the Archiving Policy tab. Double-click Global. On the Edit Archiving Policy – Global page, select the Archive internal communications and Archive external communications check boxes, and then click Commit.
At the Monitoring and Archiving, Select Archiving Configuration.
Double-click Global. In the Edit Archiving Setting – Global page, in the Archiving setting drop-down list, click Archive IM and web conferencing sessions. Select the Block instant messaging (IM) or web conferencing sessions if archiving fails check box, Select the Enable purging of archiving data check box. In the Purge exported archiving data and stored archiving data after maximum duration box, type or select 60, (or you may type your number of days to purge) and then click Commit.
Once done, the archiving has been started. In order to have Archiving Policy to be take place, all Lync Users must sign out and sign in again.
If you want to view archived data, you need to go to the Back End Server (SQL) using SQL Server Management Studio.
In Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, click New Query.
In the SQLQuery1.sql window, type the following:
GO SELECT * FROM Messages
Click Execute. In the query results, scroll over to the Body column and view the results. You should be able to see the messages from the conversations you just had.
On the FileShare server, right-click Start, and then click Open Windows Explorer. In Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\FileShare\1-ArchivingServer-1\DataConf.
Inside this folder will be a subfolder with a hashed name. Open that subfolder and then open the folder inside that to view the archived data. The files shared during the generated traffic in the previous task should all be in this folder.
Hope this is useful. Next post, I will walkthrough how to configure monitoring server role.
