Check the default settings configured in the Enterprise Vault Site properties.

To review the Site settings

  1. In the Administration Console, right-click your Enterprise Vault Site.

  2. On the shortcut menu, click Properties.

  3. Site properties include the following settings that are applicable to archiving from Domino servers. Note that you can override some of these at a lower level. For example, you can override the Site archiving schedule for a particular task by setting the schedule in the task properties. The indexing level can also be set at policy level and the default retention category can be set at provisioning group or policy level.

    • The protocol and port to be used for Web Access application requests, for example, when users perform an archive search using integrated or browser search.

    • A system message for users, if required.

    • A system message for administrators, if required.

    Archive Settings

    • The default level of indexing.

    • The default retention category.

    • Whether users can delete items from their archive. If you want users to be able to delete items from their archives, you must select the check box Users can delete items from their archives. The setting Enable recovery of user deleted items enables the retention of user-deleted items so that accidentally-deleted items can be recovered.

    Storage Expiry

    • The schedule for running storage expiry to delete from archives any items that are older than the retention period assigned.

    Archive Usage Limit

    • If required, you can set limits on the size of archives here or in the vault store properties.

    Site Schedule

    • The schedule for running automatic, background archiving.


    • Performance counters for monitoring Enterprise Vault.

  4. Click Help on any of the Site properties screens for further information.
