Question on MRM Logging

Hello

I enabled MRM logging on my Exchange 2007 SP1 server as per :

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb397218(EXCHG.80).aspx

And also enabled the Managed Folder Assistant to run.

I'm checking the MRM logs, and they exist for each Mail Store, however not all users are mentioned in the logs.

Is this because the MRM logs only input data when they need to process something, they won't just say that they have processed a mailbox but there was no need to take any action?

Also, I see entries in the log that say, "Starting to process Mailbox: User1.." however then the log stops and there is no further mention. The data stamp of the log is well before the time schedule for the Managed Folder Assistant is due to finish.

Strangely, if I chek out the Event Log, then I can see ID's for the Assistant starting to process the Store, and then completing having finished processing all mailboxes in the store.

Hi,
First things first, did you cover all Mailboxes or there was some filter.
Refer: http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/compliance-policies-archiving/exchange-2007-messaging-records-management-part1.html
Thanks

No - all mailboxes should have been processed.

Thanks both.

I can confrirm all mailboxes should have been processed - there were no filters.

So, my question is - should all mailboxes have been mentioned in the MRM log file? Or only the mailboxes where an action was taken?

No it will not mention everything, only what has been configured.

Hi

Thanks - so, to confirm, if there are 10 mailboxes on my server, and only 3 of them have messages that don't meet Mailbox Management policies, only 3 mailboxes will be mentioned in the logs? There will be no mention of the other 7 mailboxes, since Exchange didn't take any action on them?

Also, any idea on this question:

"Also, I see entries in the log that say, "Starting to process Mailbox: User1.." however then the log stops and there is no further mention. The data stamp of the log is well before the time schedule for the Managed Folder Assistant is due to finish."

It should Log Events 9021 for Start and 9022 for End...are they logged. Can you verify in Event Viewer...If yes, then you are ok
Thanks
