This article describes how to install Archive Shuttle Core and the Archive Shuttle Modules.

Note: Some components of Archive Shuttle have the capability to perform work using MAPI or EWS. These are:

  • Enterprise Vault collector module (which can collect shortcuts from mailboxes)
  • Shortcut Processing module (which can fix shortcuts, or delete them)

The use of MAPI for these, and other activities, is deprecated and will be removed in a future release of the product.
Note: Ensure migration environments are deployed with EWS configurations.

Overview of Archive Shuttle licensing

Archive Shuttle uses a license file that is bound to the domain name where the Archive Shuttle Core Server is installed. A license file must be obtained that covers the features and user/data amounts that are to be migrated.
The following types of Archive Shuttle license are available:

  • Production license: This license has no time limits associated with it and has the amount of user licenses / data extraction licenses that have been purchased.
  • Trial license: This license is time limited and allows testing the full functionality of Archive Shuttle for a limited time only. When the license expires, the software continues to run in a restricted, read-only mode, which allows for many Archive Shuttle activities to be performed except export/import of data.

Obtaining a license file

License files are issued by e-mail from Quadrotech upon purchase. If a trial license is needed, please contact Quadrotech Support.

Installing Archive Shuttle license files

The license file has to be installed on the Archive Shuttle Core Server.
The license file is requested during the Archive Shuttle Core installation.

Obtaining the software

A download link will be provided by Quadrotech.
