To enable or disable Archiving for specific users homed on Lync Server, you must first create a user policy and then apply the policy to one or more users or user groups. For details about applying user policies to specific users and user groups, see Applying a Lync Server Archiving Policy to a User in the Deployment documentation.
For details about how Archiving policies work, including the hierarchy for global, site, and user policies, see How Archiving Works in the Planning documentation, in the Deployment documentation, or in the Operations documentation.
|If you enabled Microsoft Exchange integration for your
deployment, Exchange In-Place Hold policies control whether
archiving is enabled for the users who are homed on Exchange 2013
and have their mailboxes put on In-Place Hold. For details, see
Policies for Archiving When Using Exchange Server Integration
in the Deployment documentation.
You should specify all appropriate options in the Archiving configurations before enabling Archiving. For details, see Configuring Archiving Options in the Deployment documentation.
