4.5 Configuring the Archive Agent in ConsoleOne

The advantage to configuring the Archive Agent in ConsoleOne, as opposed to using startup switches in the Archive Agent startup file, is that the Archive Agent configuration settings are stored in eDirectory.

  1. In ConsoleOne, browse to and expand the Messenger Service object.

  2. Select the Messenger Server object where the Archive Agent runs.

    Messenger Server objects and contents
  3. Right-click the Archive Agent object, then click Properties.

The table below summarizes the Archive Agent configuration settings in the Archive Agent object property pages and how they correspond to Archive Agent startup switches (as described in Section 4.13, Using Archive Agent Startup Switches):
