Agent Properties (General)

Use this dialog box to obtain or provide general and/or user account information for the agent.

Client Name

Displays the name of the client computer on which this Agent is installed.

iDataAgent

Displays the identity of the Agent that is installed on the client computer.

Installed date

Displays the date on which the Agent was installed or upgraded on the client computer.

Profile Name

Displays the name of the profile that is associated with the appropriate Administrator Mailbox. Use this space to modify this name.

Mailbox Name

Displays the name of the mailbox that is associated with the appropriate Administrator profile. Use this space to modify this name.

Exchange Administrator Account

Displays the Exchange Administrator Account for the site in which this Exchange Server resides. Click Change Account to modify the account credentials.

Change Account

Click to change the Exchange Administrator Account associated with this agent. These credentials are initially provided during agent installation. Populate the resulting dialog box only if you changed the Exchange Administrator Account and it now differs from the one displayed in the Exchange Administrator Account field.

Backup Deleted Item Retention

Specifies whether to enable backups for Deleted Item Retention. By default, the Deleted Item Retention folder is not included in backups.

When cleared, backups of the Deleted Item Retention folder are disabled.

Filter For Discovery

Specifies whether to use LDAP filtering for discovery operations. When selected, an LDAP filter must be entered into the corresponding entry space.

Use of this option requires expert-level knowledge of constructing LDAP queries. This is beneficial for successful filtering. Incorrect use of the LDAP filtering option can result in failed discovery and data protection operations.

The following example filters out system mailboxes residing on the SERVERNAME server from discovery operations:

"(&(msExchHomeServerName=*/cn=SERVERNAME)(!(CN=SystemMailbox{*)))"

When cleared, user-specified LDAP filtering will not be used for discovery operations.

Exchange Server Name

Displays the hostname of the Exchange Server that is installed on the client computer. Use this space to modify the hostname if the name displayed is incorrect. If more than one hostname is entered, separate the hostnames with the semicolon delimiter.

When backing up Exchange 2010 Database Availability Group (DAG) servers, enter the Mailbox server role that is used by backup and restore operations and configure the sCASServerName additional setting to specify a CAS server for creating the profile.

Exchange Version

Lists the version of the Exchange Server that is installed on the client computer. To modify the version, select one from the list.

Manage Content Automatically

Specifies to automatically assign auto discovered content to the subclients.

By default, if a change is made to an automatically discovered mailbox that alters the association criteria it was discovered with, the next backup will automatically reassign the mailbox to the appropriate subclient that satisfies the new criteria.

Clear this option to disable this functionality.
