The lockbox is an encrypted file that the Microsoft application agent uses to store confidential data, such as login credentials, and protect that data from unauthorized access. For each PowerProtect protection policy, the Data Manager creates a storage unit and automatically configures the lockbox on the application host. A source lockbox and replication target lockbox are created and configured on the application host.
When you first use the Data Manager UI to add the Microsoft application agent and create the protection policy for Exchange data protection, Data Manager automatically configures the lockbox for the Exchange server. The lockbox for the Microsoft application agent is created in the default directory C:\ProgramFiles\DPSAPPS\common\lockbox. Data Manager integration requires the lockbox to be in the default directory.
