    Does anyone know if you can import users from a list into a Exchange Mailbox Archiver subclient content window

    At the moment I am doing this manually.

    We have 3 different discovery methods for auto discovery

    Storage group affinity

    Mailbox expressions

    AD User group affinity


    The method I feel would best fit this description would be to add the users to a AD group and use the option AD user group affinity.

    The groups you use can be distro or security. They can not however be nested.

    Let me know if this helps.

    Thanks for that Patrick,

    However, it's not exactly what I was after.

    I want to create a Mailbox Archiver subclient and populate the contents page with a list of users.

    Usually I match the Commvault subclient with the Exchange Storage Group. I have set the Auto Discovery to Storage Group affinity, so that will cope with new users being added to the Exchange Storage Group but I still want to see a list of users in the contents page.

    Hope that makes sense


    I'm sure (but not 100% sure) there was a method of adding users via a command line and txt file in version 6.5

    after you created the subclient and assigned autodiscovery affinity did you run a backup ?  The subclient content will not be populated until the first Data Protection job is run.

    Hi SReents

    Thanks for letting me know that.

    No I didn't - we only use Commvault for email archiving. So I presume if I ran an archiving job it will populate the contents page as well

    Yes, that is correct.  Autodiscovery is for both Mailbox agent and Mailbox Archiver agent, so the first data protection job you run for either one will populate subclient content.

    Great - I'll give it a go when I archive my next storage group

    Thanks for your help


    Just to let you know - I ran an archive operation with a new subclient with AD user group affinity and it did exactly what you said - thanks again
