Limiting the impact when updating moved item locations
Previously, you could prevent Enterprise Vault from updating an item's location in the archive when a user moved the shortcut to a different folder in their mailbox. To disable this feature, you cleared Update archive location for items moved in the mailbox in the Exchange Mailbox policy. In Enterprise Vault 11.0, this option was on the Moved Items tab. In Enterprise Vault 12.0, the tab was renamed Existing Items.
In this release, Enterprise Vault always updates the archive location of moved items. If you had previously disabled this feature, and mailboxes contain lots of shortcuts, then Enterprise Vault attempts to update the archive location for moved items after you upgrade. If the mailboxes include historical shortcuts to Enterprise Vault servers that are no longer reachable, then long network timeouts may occur.
To prevent these timeouts, configure a list of valid site aliases as described in the following procedure.
Configuring a list of valid site aliases
- In the Enterprise Vault Administration Console, open the Advanced tab in the Exchange Mailbox policy.
- In List settings from:, select Archiving General.
- Select Valid Enterprise Vault site aliases and click Modify.
- Enter a semi-colon separated list of valid site aliases. During shortcut processing, Enterprise Vault does not attempt to contact any site whose alias does not appear in the list.
- Click OK to close the dialog box, and then again to close the properties.
- Repeat the above steps for each Exchange Mailbox policy.
