For each site you have deployed, you can create an archiving policy to control whether archiving for that site is enabled or disabled for the following:

The configuration in the site policy overrides the global policy, but only for the specific site covered by the site policy. For example, if you enable archiving of internal and external communications in the global policy, you might specify a site policy that disables archiving for internal communications, external communications, or both for that one site.

In order to configure and use archiving, you must first install the Archiving Server and the archiving database. For details, see Deploying Archiving in the Deployment documentation.

To configure archiving support, you must enable support for each type of archiving you want to support, as well as configure and, if appropriate, assign policies and configure other options to control how archiving is implemented. For details, see Configuring Support for External User Access and Configure Archiving Options for a Site in the Deployment documentation or Managing External Connectivity in the Operations documentation.

To create an archiving policy for a site

  1. From a user account that is assigned to the CsArchivingAdministrator or CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer in your internal deployment.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server Administrative Tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Monitoring and Archiving, and then click Archiving Policy.

  4. Click New, and the click Site policy.

  5. In Select a Site, click the site to which the policy is to be applied.

  6. In New Archiving Policy, do the following:

    • In Name, specify a name for the new site policy (for example, externalContoso).

    • In Description, provide details about what the site policy is (for example, External user archiving policy for Contoso).

    • To control archiving of internal communications for the site, select or clear the Archive internal communications check box.

    • To control archiving of communications with external users for the site, select or clear the Archive external communications check box.

  7. Click Commit.
