This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hey all,
1. my excuse for my terrible englisch.
I hope this no issue for the pro's here in this forum.

i have the problem that, sinds we have Enterpise Vault Archiving, disabled users in AD wil not be archived.

This is the situation:

- migration from exchange 2003 to exchange 2007
- since exchange 2007 we have EV 2007 Version V7.5 running

this is the problem:

users in AD who are never enabled, wil not be archived.
even if i enable them.
They have an archive with 0 items
also when i start the task manual, it archived sometimes.
When i change a user to the leaver profile, the mailbox are not archived. (sometimes)
I have no errors in the eventmanager for this issues.

Hope you can help me with this issue,

kind regards

thx for the quic assistance.

to add this regkey, i need to log a change.
this wil take a while.
When it's done i report the result.

yesterday i've enabled a lot of users in ad and EV
This morning, i look at them and they ware not archived.
I have a lot of this issues and no errors in the event.
i do not understand why this happend. All settings are correct, the same as all the other users.

Does anybody know if this works on a 64 bit install?  Windows 2008 SP1 x64 - EV 8 SP2. I have the registry entry under 

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KVS\Enterprise Vault\Agents
DWORD: ExcludeDisabledADAccounts
Value: 0

The server has been rebooted and it still doesn't work.
