Microsoft Exchange PST Capture Agent install via Group Policy

Posted on 2012-08-20

I am wondering if anyone has any experience with modifying the Microsoft Exchange PST Capture Agent installation for deployment through Group Policy. I have the msi package in a shared directory on our server and I also know how to assign the policy to the users for when they log onto the domain. What I can't find however, are the details on modifying the msi package with the information on location/port# for our PST Capture Central Host computer. I've read the following info on the command for doing so; but I do not know where to input the information.


Can anyone provide a step by step on how to configure the package with the necessary information?

    Perhaps I should provide a bit more information on the tool that I'm using to import PST files. The name of the utility is now "Microsoft Exchange PST Capture". The former name was "PST Importer" from RedGate software ( They were purchased by Microsoft and the tool was made available as a free utility and has been updated.

    It works with Exchange 2007 and 2010.

    We're just going to copy the PST files to a network share and grab them from there. I guess Microsoft needs to work on the functionality of their newly acquired software a bit more; but otherwise it works like a champ.
