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

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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 .....
