Exchange online archival not working

Brass Contributor

Hi All,

I have been trying to archive mailbox of a user who left organization, but for some reason it is not happening, below is mailbox size. i have now run Start-ManagedFolderAssistant several times, but mail box size never changes


Retention enabled is set to false, is that the reason archival is not happening?



I have also run below command to check if archival ever started, but no trace


Any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Does this mean archival happened  ?



if yes, i still see mailbox size not changed in EAC





It might take a while to process large mailboxes, spamming Start-ManagedFolderAssistant doesn't really speed up the process (it only "signals" the server to process the mailbox when possible, within the 7day SLA). What kind of tags did you configure?
