    What if exchange server already decommissioned , still possible to export?

      Hi Syed haven’t tried this option.Ideally the EV will be dead for new archive jobs but still the PST export of the existing archives should work.

      Yes EV Export can be done from Vault admin console since EV data resides in data stores

      May be you need to choose the correct archive EV store during the import process ?

    Hi Sathish, i am getting error in Event log, An unsupported version of Microsoft Exchange Server has been detected, and some events that Exchange Server not available.
    If Exchange on-prem is decommission or not accessible, how can we still do export?
