Smarsh provides a unified, search-ready repository and interface for fast, powerful e-discovery and automated, policy-based compliance supervision for email, instant messaging, text, web, video and social media communications.
For a general description of Verba Storage targets, please refer to: Storage targets
Please refer to the official Smarsh guide to configure the cloud service.
Creating a Smarsh target
Follow the steps below to create a new Verba Storage target for Smarsh:
Step 1 - Open the Verba Web interface then select Data > Storage targets from the top menu.
Step 2 - Click on Add New Storage Target
Step 3 - Fill in the configuration form according to the requirements in the following table.
|Name||Name your storage target. This name will identify this target across the system.|
|Frontend URL||Smarsh webservice URL|
|Application ID||Your Smarsh Application ID|
|Account ID||Your Smarsh Account ID|
|Source ID||Referred to as CID in your Smarsh account|
|Public Certificate||The certificate that you received from Smarsh for your account|
Step 4 - Click Save to save the settings
After this point the Storage target is available for use by other Verba components (e.g. Data retention policies).
Configuring SSL certificates for the API connection
Smarsh can be configured to accept SSL connections from trusted sources only. You can configure the trusted and signed certificates used by the Verba system on the servers directly. If you intend to use multiple Smarsh systems for Verba, you need to use the same certificates for all, because it is a server side setting in the Verba system. By default Verba uses its own self signed certificates for the SSL connection.
Follow the steps below to configure the certificates.
Step 1 - Copy the X.509 certificate and key files to the Verba server
Step 2 - Navigate to the System / Verba Servers
Step 3 - Click on the Verba server you would like to configure
Step 4 - Click on the Change Configuration Settings tab
Step 5 - Open the Storage Management / Upload Targets / Smarsh tree on a Verba Recording Server or the Storage Management / Storage Targets / Smarsh tree on a Verba Media Repository server or on a Verba Media Repository and Recording Server
Step 6 - Configure a trusted custom X.509 certificate for the connection
Step 7 - Click the Save icon and follow the instructions on the page to apply the configuration on the server
Step 8 - Repeat the steps above on all Verba servers where you move files to Smarsh
