As many Enterprise Vault people will know Enterprise Vault 11 Cumulative Hotfix 1, came out on Friday (4th July 2014). Here is a link to the technote where you can download the update:
I decided to upgrade one of my labs almost straight away because I’m looking to see if resolves a long standing issue we’ve had with Archive Shuttle and ingesting data into Enterprise Vault. The 160-something Mb download is a zip file containing an ISO of 350-something Mb. So it’s not a ‘small’ update let me tell you!
The installation was kind of strange as well. The first time I ran it the installer failed to stop any of the services, and after 5 minutes of frustration I decided to abort the installation, set all the Enterprise Vault services to manual, restart the machine, and try again. The install worked that time, and only took a couple of minutes.
The final bit that as a bit ‘odd’ was having to run the Database Upgrade via a ‘new-style’-command line tool. It was a bit of a pain having to do that manually, especially in my single server site, where it would be nice to just ‘do it’ as part of the installation.
After that, what’s the verdict?
Well I haven’t found any issues yet, and it solved the issue where the EV API would take a folder name and just because it has a few digits here and there in the folder path, it would think it was a folder ID, instead of just a path.
