Microsoft Exchange PST Capture
Microsoft Exchange PST Capture
With Exchange Online, your users have large mailboxes with access to a personal archive.
As mentioned before, this makes personal folders (.pst) files obsolete. If your organization
has .pst files, in addition to migrating mailboxes you might have to search for .pst files on
computers in your organization so you can incorporate the contents into personal archives.
This can be accomplished with Microsoft PST Capture.
PST Capture works with Exchange on-premises and Exchange Online. Therefore, you have
two import options:
Discover .pst files and import contents to an on-premises Exchange server first, then
migrate mailboxes to Exchange Online. In this scenario, the on-premises Exchange
server must be Exchange 2010 or Exchange 2013.
Discover .pst files and import contents directly to Exchange Online.
PST Capture comprises the following components:
PST Capture Central Service The Central Service maintains the list of .pst files
found in your organization and manages the migration of the data into Exchange
Online.
PST Capture Agent This is the component that needs to be installed on computers
in your organization and is responsible for locating .pst files associated to the
computer it is installed on. The agent is also responsible for transmitting the .pst file to
the Central Service during import operations.
PST Capture Console The PST Console is the administrator interface to configure
.pst discovery, configure the import process, and also import .pst files from network
storage devices that do not have capture agents installed.
