This sample deployment scenario explains how to archive the related Instant Messaging data collectively.
Create separate categories for each type of data. For example, in the Archive category where all the archived Instant Messaging data are stored, create a subcategory called “Chat” for storing chat messages. You can also create subcategories for archiving data based on time. For example, to archive chat data for the month of December 2002 the subcategory will be:
Change to theim-cfg-base directory.
See Instant Messaging Server Directory Structure for information on locating im-cfg-base.
See iim.conf File Syntax for instructions on locating and modifying iim.conf.
Add the following value for iim_arch.chat.categoryname:
iim_arch.chat.categoryname = Archive:Chat:%Y:%M
The archive provider automatically assigns the current year for %Y and current month for %M. These values are taken from the system date and time.
Type the following:
rdmgr -Q "classification=Archive:Chat:2005:12" > archive.soif
Copy the archive.soif file to your backup system.
