To do the configuration in SMEX:

  1. Go to Administration > Access Control.
  2. Click the Search & Destroy role to configure.
  3. Modify the Search & Destroy description. (Optional)
  4. Search for users or groups to add in the Search & Destroy role.
  5. In the Available Account list, select the accounts to add in the role.
  6. Choose Add and save your changes for the Access Control screen to appear.
  7. To the right of the Search & Destroy role, click the Status icon to enable the role. The icon changes from a red “x” to a green check.
  8. Select Save.
  9. Log off from the SMEX console.
  10. Log on using an account with a Search & Destroy role to use the feature.
  1. Configure the Exchange service account to perform the backend searches in the Exchange environment. Use the following Exchange Management Shell commands to configure the service account you added in Search & Destroy:
    • Add the "SERVICE_ACCOUNT_NAME" account to the Exchange Discovery Management group:

      Add-RoleGroupMember -Identity "Discovery Management" -Member "SERVICE_ACCOUNT_NAME"

    • Add the "SERVICE_ACCOUNT_NAME" account to the Exchange Mailbox Import Export role:

      New-ManagementRoleAssignment -Role "mailbox import export" -User "SERVICE_ACCOUNT_NAME"

  2. Use the command below to create a new discovery mailbox and assign the discovery management group full access permission. An Exchange Discovery mailbox is necessary to store the mailbox search result messages.
    • Return all the discovery mailboxes that exist on the Exchange server:

      Get-Mailbox -Filter {RecipientTypeDetails -eq "DiscoveryMailbox"}

    • Create a new discovery mailbox in the MAILBOX_DATABASE_NAME database:

      New-Mailbox "NEW_DISCOVERY_MAILBOX_NAME" -Discovery -database "MAILBOX_DATABASE_NAME"

    • Assign the Exchange Discovery Management group full access permission to the DISCOVERY_MAILBOX_NAME database:

      Add-MailboxPermission -Identity "DISCOVERY_MAILBOX_NAME" -user "Discovery Management" -AccessRights FullAccess

    1. Click Search & Destroy > Mailbox Search or select Search & Destroy > Settings. The Search & Destroy Activation wizard will appear.
    2. Choose Next and the Exchange Server Prerequisite Configuration screen will show.
    3. Read the prerequisite items carefully and configure the prerequisite Exchange environment settings before proceeding. You may refer to Step 2 for details.
    4. After configuring all the necessary settings, select All Exchange Server to know if prerequisite settings have been properly configured.
    5. Choose Next and the service account logon credentials screen will show.
    6. Type the username for the previously configured service account. The format for the service account is "domain\user name".
    7. Type the password for the service account.
    8. Click Next and the discovery mailbox selection screen will appear.
    9. Select a discovery mailbox that stores the Search & Destroy search results from the Available Discovery Mailbox list.
    10. Choose Next and the generated PST search results screen appears.
    11. Select the Allow Search & Destroy users to generate a .pst file containing all search results option to configure ScanMail. This is needed to create the\SmexSDPst folder and share the folder with the Exchange Trusted Subsystem. 
       
      Ensure that the account is a member of the Exchange Mailbox Import Export role.
    12. Click Next and the Search & Destroy activation details screen will be displayed.
       
      If the service account or discovery mailbox provided are invalid, the activation process cannot proceed.
    13. Review the Search & Destroy settings and choose Finish.
