5.4 Granting Authorized User Access to the Archive

The Messenger archive is a single archive containing the conversations of all Messenger users for whom archiving is enabled. Therefore, access to the archive should be granted only to users who can appropriately view everyone's conversations. Users who can search the Messenger archive must be added to the Messenger access control list (ACL).

  1. In ConsoleOne, browse to and right-click the Messenger Service object, then click Properties.

  2. Click Novell Messenger > Archive ACL.

    Archive ACL page
  3. Click Add, then browse to and select those users that you want to grant access to the Messenger archive.

    You can select only User objects. You cannot select container objects, Group objects, Organizational Role objects, GroupWise Distribution List objects, and so on.

  4. Repeat Step 3 for each context where User objects are located.

  5. Click OK to save the Messenger archive access control list.

  6. Stop and then start the Archive Agent to put the access control list into effect.

  7. Have authorized users log out and back in to the Messenger system in order to add the Search Archive item on the File menu.
