Export/production configuration options

Use these settings to configure the output when users export or produce items from Discovery Accelerator for offline review.

Add Bate identifier to File System exports

Specifies whether to add an identifying Bates number to the file name of each exported item that Enterprise Vault has archived through File Systems Archiving.

The options are as follows:

  • 0. Omit the Bates number.

  • 1. Add the Bates number to the start of the file name. This option is the default option.

  • 2. Append the Bates number to the end of the file name.

Always date stamp exported File System items

Specifies whether to append a last-modified date stamp to the file name of each exported item that Enterprise Vault has archived through File Systems Archiving. By default, Discovery Accelerator appends the date stamp.

Automatic retry: Maximum retries

Specifies the maximum number of attempts that Discovery Accelerator makes to repeat an export run that failed for any reason. Set the value to 0 to stop Discovery Accelerator from retrying the run.

Automatic retry: Minimum time between retries (minutes)

Specifies the minimum delay in minutes between automatic attempts to repeat a failed export or production run. By default, Discovery Accelerator waits five minutes between retries.

Note that Discovery Accelerator multiplies this value by the number of retries. So, if this value is 5, the delay between retries starts at five minutes and increases to 10, 15, and so on with subsequent retries.

Custom conversion extension

Specifies the file name extension of the files to create when exporting items for viewing outside Discovery Accelerator. For example, you would specify .xls as the extension for export files in Microsoft Excel format.

Custom conversion file

Specifies the name of the template file to use when exporting files in their custom format. For example, if you have created a template file for exporting items in Microsoft Excel format, you can enter ExcelReport.xslt as the file name.

Default export folder

Specifies the default folder on the Discovery Accelerator server to use for exported items. If you do not specify a default export folder, Discovery Accelerator uses the folder c:\Discovery Accelerator Export\customer_name.

The folder path can contain up to 100 characters.

Default Production status

Specifies the status that you want to set as the default current status when you perform an export run.

Type one of the following values:

  • 0. N/A

  • 1. Pending

  • 2. Reviewed

  • 3. Questioned

Default to Unicode for PST and MSG

Specifies whether to export PST and MSG files in Unicode (Outlook 2003 and later) format or ANSI (Outlook 97 through 2002) format. By default, Discovery Accelerator exports the items in Unicode format.

Domino Export Template

Specifies the name of the file to use as a template when exporting files to a Lotus Notes Database Template (NTF) file. The default file name is accelexp.ntf.

Domino ID File

Specifies the name of the .id file that is used for local Domino authentication when exporting files to an NTF file. The default file name is Accelerator.id.

Domino Password

Specifies the password that is used for local Domino authentication when exporting files to an NTF file.

Enable Production threads

Specifies whether to enable or disable all exporting and production facilities. By default, Discovery Accelerator enables these facilities.

HTML conversion file

Lets you download, edit, and then upload an XSL style sheet. This style sheet serves as the template for all the export reports that Discovery Accelerator generates in HTML format.

Maximum production retry for items stored on slow devices

Specifies the number of attempts that Discovery Accelerator makes to retrieve an item from an offline device, such as a tape drive, before giving up. Enter a value between 1 and 1000, where the default is 120.

Minimum number of minutes between retries for items stored on slow devices (min)

Specifies the number of minutes that Discovery Accelerator waits between retry attempts when trying to retrieve an item from an offline device. Enter a value between 1 and 300, where the default is 5.

Number of production report threads

Specifies the number of threads that Discovery Accelerator assigns to generating reports of export runs. The default is 5.

Number of production threads per production run

Specifies the number of threads in the SQL connection pool that Discovery Accelerator assigns to each export or production run. Enter a value in the range 1 to 25, where the default is 25.

See also the configuration setting "Total number of production threads per customer".

To determine the maximum number of export or production runs that you can conduct simultaneously, divide the "Total number of production threads per customer" by the "Number of production threads per production run". For example, if you specify 100 for the first setting and 25 for the second setting, you can conduct up to four export or production runs simultaneously. If you try to conduct further export or production runs, Discovery Accelerator holds them in a queue until the required number of threads is available.

Production order Search by RunDate

Sets the order in which Discovery Accelerator lists the searches when you set the criteria for an export run. You can choose to sort the searches by name or by run date. By default, Discovery Accelerator sorts the searches by name.

PST ExportID Column Name

In Microsoft Outlook, specifies the label for the column in which to show Discovery Accelerator export IDs. The default label is "Bate Number". When you export items from Discovery Accelerator as a Personal Folders (.pst) file, and then import this file into Outlook, the export IDs of the items appear in this column.

PST Folder Name

Specifies the Outlook folder in which to place the items after you import a Personal Folders (.pst) file that you exported from Discovery Accelerator.

Report chunk size

Specifies the number of exported items to list in each report file. The default is 25000.

Show PST version option on export run

Specifies whether, when you undertake an export run, Discovery Accelerator prompts you to select a PST version: Outlook 97-2002 (ANSI) or Outlook 2003 (Unicode). By default, Discovery Accelerator does not display the prompt.

Show review page on export

Specifies whether, when you initiate an export run or production run, Discovery Accelerator first opens the Review pane. This facility lets you browse the items before you proceed with the run. By default, Discovery Accelerator does not display the Review pane.

TAB Conversion file

Lets you download, edit, and then upload an XSL style sheet. This style sheet serves as the template for all the export reports that Discovery Accelerator generates in tab-separated format.

Total number of production threads per customer

Specifies the maximum number of threads per customer that Discovery Accelerator assigns when it conducts export or production runs. Enter a value between 50 and 1000, where the default is 100.
