Everyday is a school day!

On the forums the other day a colleague asked if there was a way of limiting, or rather –extending- the number of archives which are returned when you do an Export Archive from the VAC, and choose ‘List All’.  The default is that you get 10,000 back.  They wanted more.

 

I didn’t think there was a way of doing that, but there is !

Way back in EV 5 times a registry key was added, and documented :

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    Software
        KVS
          Enterprise Vault
              AdminService
                   MSMQ Queue

STRING: MaxArchivesToFind

You can tell how old it is because the key is a STRING not a DWORD.. and unfortunately it’s documented incorrectly, it is in fact :

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    Software
        KVS
          Enterprise Vault
              Admin
                   MSMQ Queue

STRING: MaxArchivesToFind
