"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Well, the only option for you to read the manuals (that came along with the software) carefully and  take notes on prerequisites, required  SQL settings, user account for Vault, etc..,  . I too had wished for some straight through options but could not find it.

You have to take care of the prerequisites, configuration part on your DC, your exchange.  Do not install SQL unless you meet all the prerequisites. You should have a plan with regard to configuration & implementation. I would suggest to set up a lab and test it before implementing in production.

Thank you Zacharia; however we are in a crunch to get this installed and looking for something really simple to install and get configured.  How did you find the install process??

I would recommend professional services on this.  I have done dozens of installs and you can get into trouble if you have not training and don't know what best practice configuration is.

In general, you will need to install SQL, define policies (probably just as critical as installation), and do the inst EV install

For base EV install here's a link to install

If you are familiar with the old versions of Vault, reading the manuals of  Verion11, will be enough. If not I suggest you to set up a test lab and look into details.

If you can get a professional service from the Vender, that would avoid all your issues. Since we had previous versions, the whole manuals and support from Symantec, solved a few glitches. If you want to have something very simple and quick to install then look for Barracuda.

For eDiscovery and searches this is a full fledged product versus an email dump with Barracuda.  This has saves many of our customers $100k for the discovery piece.
