Installing and using PST Capture
Implementing a PST Capture strategy involves installing the PST Capture Console first.
Follow these steps to install the PST Capture Console:
1. Download Microsoft PST Capture and PST Capture Agent from the Microsoft
Download Center at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.
2. Use a user account that is part of the local Administrators Group of a host computer
to install the PST Capture Console. The host computer must have a 64-bit operating
system that is Windows 7 or Windows 8, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008
R2, or Windows Server 2012. It also must have the .NET Framework 4.5.
3. Next, you need to deploy the agents. Even though you can manually install the PST
Capture agent, to distribute it to multiple computers you need to use a software
distribution solution such as System Center Configuration Manager. You can
start Windows installer with the following parameters to initiate an unattended
Msiexec /I PSTCaptureAgent.msi /q CENTRALSERVICEHOST=<IP Address or FQDN of
Capture Console> SERVICEPORT=6674
4. After all the agents have been distributed to the computers on your network, start
the PST Capture Console. As shown in Figure 12-24, there are two major actions: New
PST Search and New Import List.
