Enterprise Vault has several ways available for customers to perform migrations of data from “old” PST files into an archive.  Whilst the ways aren’t necessarily perfect, or 110% complete (at least, I don’t think they are) there are some fantastic features available.. and with a little bit of work it’s possible to get a good picture of what’s happening, where, what has happened, and why.

The first piece of this that I thought about is that in the Vault Administration Console you can enable people for Client Driven PST Migration, and you can disable them from Client Driven PST Migration … but how do you tell who already has it enabled?

I have not found an answer in the Vault Administration Console, but the following snippet of SQL works :

select mbxDisplayName, ArchivingEnabled =
    CASE mbxArchivingState
        WHEN 0 THEN 'New'
        WHEN 1 THEN 'Enabled'
        WHEN 2 then 'Disabled'
    END,
PSTImportEnabled =
    CASE EnabledPSTImport
        WHEN 0 THEN 'No longer'
        WHEN 1 THEN 'Yes'
    END
from exchangemailboxentry
where enabledpstimport is not null
order by mbxDisplayName

Sample output :

pst1
