Setting up Automatic Message Purging in OCS 2007 R2 and Lync 2010

Your organization may have a requirement that only X days of IM chat conversations are to be retained in your archive.  Fortunately, both OCS and Lync provide this functionality out-of-the-box.

OCS 2007R2:

  1. Open the Office Communications Server Control Panel
  2. Expand the Archiving Servers section in the left panel and select your archiving server.
  3. Right-click and select Properties.
  4. Check the checkbox "Archiving Days Logged" and enter the number of days you want retained.
  5. Select OK to commit the changes.
