Any documentation on EV9sp3 registry keys no longer necessary in EV10.2?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Has anyone created any documentation around registry keys used in EV9.3 that are not recommended after upgrading to EV10.2.

I know AVSMaxLoc is no longer necessary due to adjusting through the VAC, any others?

I did a search of the Registry.pdf and found the following:

SearchChunkSize :

For Enterprise Vault 10.0 and later, SearchChunkSize affects 32-bit indexing only. For 64-bit indexing, there is no equivalent setting.

RetryFailedIndexVolumesIntervalHours

Note: For Enterprise Vault 10.0 and later, RetryFailedIndexVolumesIntervalHours affects 32-bit indexing only. For 64-bit indexing, use the computer properties advanced setting, Frequency of checks for failed volumes.

CheckWidthNormalization

For Enterprise Vault 10.0 and later, CheckWidthNormalization affects 32-bit indexing only. For 64-bit indexing, there is no equivalent setting.

AVSMaxLoc

Note: For Enterprise Vault 10.0 and later, AVSMaxLoc affects 32-bit indexing only. For 64-bit indexing, use the computer properties advanced setting, Maximum items in an index volume.

Those were the only ones I found

well remember those keys may still be useful if you are troubleshooting issues with 32 bit indexes, because FAST/AltaVista still exists in EV10 and is still used for 32bit indexes

Thanks Tony and Jesus! I was wondering about UseLocalDirectory and EMCCenteraCollectionThreads as well, neither of which is in the EV10 registry doc.

I'm absolutely sure those two registry keys are still valid.
UseLocalDirectory - I don't think there's ever been a good use case scenario for this key
EMCCenteraCollectionThreads - unless they've changed how the Centera Collections work, i'm absolutely sure this key is still used and in some cases necessary
