Beginning with Version 7.1.4, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail is now IBM Spectrum Protect for Mail. Some applications such as the software fulfilment systems and IBM License Metric Tool use the new product name. However, the software and its product documentation continue to use the Tivoli Storage Manager product name.

With Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail: Data Protection for Microsoft Exchange Server version 7.1.4.2, features that support Microsoft Exchange 2016 have been added to enable you to protect and manage your Microsoft Exchange 2016 environment.

This document describes the features that are delivered to support Microsoft Exchange 2016.

Mailbox filter options

When you restore an individual mailbox, you can use mailbox filters to identify individual messages to restore. With Microsoft Exchange 2016, the Folder Name filter option is supported.

Example:

To restore a folder named “folder A” in the mailbox “MailboxA”, run the following command:



tdpexcc restoremailbox "MailboxA" /MailboxFilter="folder,folderA"

Individual mailbox restore options

You can restore individual mailbox items from database backups.

The following table describes the differences between the mailbox restore features supported with Microsoft Exchange 2010 and 2013, and the features that are supported with Microsoft Exchange 2016.

  • Enable tracing from the command line and view issues in the trace log files (in the same way as done for Microsoft Exchange versions 2010 and 2013).
  • From a Windows PowerShell command prompt, issue the cmdlet Get-MailboxRestoreRequest to view the status of a mailbox restore operation.

After a successful mailbox restore, with Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail: Data Protection for Microsoft Exchange Server version 7.1.4.2, the temporary mailbox folder that was created during the restore operation can be deleted automatically.



Note: To enable automatic temporary folder deletion with Microsoft Exchange 2016, you must log on as an Exchange Server administrator and ensure you have the ApplicationImpersonation role assigned to your user. This role is not enabled by default.

The MAPI/CDO library is not supported with Microsoft Exchange 2016. The MAPI/CDO Changes table describes the impact of this change in your Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail: Data Protection for Microsoft Exchange Server solution.
