file000131707190 (Custom)In a previous article we discussed how to close off Index Locations in Enterprise Vault 10 in order to stop data being written to them. This will prevent the growth in disk space usage of where those volumes are. The next step might be that you really still have to free up some space, so you want to move some index volumes associated with particular archives. In this blog, I’ll explain how.

SONY DSCI have seen a few posts on the Connect Forums which talk about a variety of steps to get your current Enterprise Vault environment to EV 10 (or 10.0.1, 10.0.2, etc). Each expert has their own opinion of the steps which should be taken, and I’m not alone in that particular game either. I know that there are many options, perhaps too many?

I just spotted this update on the RSS feeds for Enterprise Vault:



It is the second Cumulative Update for Enterprise Vault 10.0.2, and to me it seems a little bit confusing .. why not just have service packs.  Anyway, the fix is for the core product, Accelerators and there is also a new Outlook Add-in.

The download is just over 40 Mb.  The readme file doesn’t appear to mention any Outlook/Client related issues, but see for yourself:

Cumulative Hotfix 2


Enterprise Vault cumulative hot fix 2 fixes the following issues:


Enterprise Vault Server


* Archiving performance slowed by large converted content

* Processing attached messages with large numbers of recipients caused high CPU usage

* Alternate data streams for FSA archive points and folder points were truncated if the target returned an error

* Unable to view the contents of S/MIME signed messages in Lotus iNotes if they had been sent from an external mail system

* Enterprise Vault created internet shortcuts to archived files even though the vault store setting for Remove Safety Copies was set to ‘never’.

* EVInstall.nsf generated errors when run against customised templates.

* Could not archive public folders when FixOrphanedShortcut registry value used

* Domino archiving tasks could archive failed items multiple times


SharePoint server archiving

* Shortcuts could not be opened when using extended web site URL


Discovery Accelerator

* Intermittent errors in placing items on legal hold could leave them eligible for deletion.

Now I no longer work for Symantec, I’m allowed to be even badder than when I was working for them 😉  Badder in the sense of running things that aren’t ‘quite’ supported.. yet.  To that end I just spent a little while this morning installing the following combination:


Windows 7 x86

Office 2013 RTM

Enterprise Vault Outlook Add-in from 10.0.2


Here is what I had before hand:

And yes, that’s right, it’s on a Virtual Machine.

I then did the installation of Office 2013, followed by activation, and then the Enterprise Vault Outlook Add-in.  Here is what I had afterwards:

Then the big question..  DID IT WORK?
Well yes..  I can see an entry in the ribbon, and I can open archived items:

I’m not saying that you should do this right now, in your production environment – but at least if you’re tinkering yourself, you know that there is an element of chance of success!
