I just turned on journaling on my exchange 2007 server.

Created a email user as journal then on the mailbox database properties I checked journal recipent and selected the jounral account. clicked apply and ok and journaling is suppose to be running.
I am doing standard journaling for now.

when I issue get-transportagent
Transport Rule Agent is  True Priority 1
Journaling Agent is True Pririty 2


How can I check to see if journaling is working?

Any comands to run to check?

Can I archive this journal account on a regular basis if so how?

Do I need to make Journaling agent Priority 1?

Simply login into the Journaling Mailbox and check for emails or its size :)

Ensure that Journal mailbox isnt in the same database where you have enabled Journaling as if so it will cause looping

Rancy

how can I journal another database? according to the documentation i have you sent journaling at the database level for the database you wish to journal.

Am I missing something here?

So I need an outlook client to check the mail?

isnt there a command line that I can use to check?

did this get-mailboxstatistic | fl displayname,totalitemsize

gave me the information I needed

For Journaling a Database you should create a new Database and have the Journal Mailbox on DB2 as your enabling Journaling on DB1

So I need an outlook client to check the mail? - Outlook or OWA .... just give FullAccess to xyz account and play around for once or can even check its size in EMC

No command line i am aware of .... apart from MessageTracking

Rancy I now understand what you menat about the second db just eat something and my mind opened up lol

I just created a second db in first storage group

I moved the account to the new database

thanks for the heads up on that.

I used owa to check and saw entries in the inbox.



Now is there a way to archive that inbox automatically from the exchange server using a script of some kind?

Only way i can think with Exchange is to regularly take data to PST from the Journal mailbox and keep it in your range

Exporting data to PST from server is quiet a task as you have to install tools on some 32 bit machine and then do export from there .....
