5:30 in the morning after waking up, showering and getting dressed I check my Blackberry. 30 unread messages.

No I’m not that popular and I’m not subscribed to blog sites, porn sites or any other meeting / dating site all 25 of the 30 messages are from MOM telling me about how Enterprise Vault has misbehaved during my few hours of slumber

Message 1: Event warning Event ID: 2776 Is this new...hmmm nope we have an open support ticket on that one.. Still ongoing

Message 2: Event warning Event ID: 2276 again nothing new another one we have an open ticket on...

Hello fellow EV-admins, users, supporters,

My name is Gertjan. I am Dutch. (it ain't much if it ain't dutch!)

I am working for a contracting firm called T2. I've been placed at one of the largest EV implementations in the Netherlands. Due to the nature of the environment (as pointed out by someone..) I will not post too much about it.

It is big. Over 95000 mailboxes, over 75000 active archives

Besides managing Enterprise Vault, I also manage a little the Exchange environment.

Current version is EV2007SP2, planning to go to 8.0SP2 (august?)

I cannot promise to post regularly, but will try to do so.

I'm getting used to the new forum-layout, but this Blog is definitely an addition to it.

I'm an MCSE+Messaging2003, MCTS, Symantec Certified Specialist EV2007 for Exchange Administrator (yep, proud of it.)

 oh, forgot... Running the EV-servers as VM's... The index and storagedisks are SAN based. (EVA)

Hello folks,

Thank you all for taking time to provide us with some constructive feedback about  ‘our’ community. We will be working on your suggested improvements in our next release... So please stay tuned.

Alright, now it’s time to divert our topic from ‘Community Health’ to ‘Community Wealth’. The new site has  lots of  robust content made available to you.  Leaving aside the forums which continue to be a hotspot for many, I would want to discuss about the Articles, Videos and Downloads. How resourceful are they? How different you want them to be? What more would you like to see? These are some of the many questions that I am seeking answers for. Any thoughts are welcome.

And, just to reiterate, the community provides you with a wonderful opportunity to contribute content. You could blog, write articles or post any videos or scripts that could be quite informative to your peers. Just a few...

Hopefully you are all aware of sp5 being released for EV 2007 (aka EV 7.5)  If you are not I highly encourage you to sign up for notifications.  See a blog posted by EV Guys linked here:

Whilst reading through the updates this feature caught my eye.  It is the ability for the user to easily send the log via email.  Now this might seem like a small thing but recalling my support days and having to walk folks through locating this file and then the EV Admin have to walk the end user through getting the email are little things that add delays to the support process.  Now all they have to do is click a button, how cool is that! 

Here are the details from the updates.htm

Option to create a mail message that contains...

Hello to the EV community!

With the launch of this new website and given that Symantec is encouraging users to post their own blogs I thought I would give it a go.  

First, let me introduce myself.  I am Tony Sterling and I was an original KVS employee.  I started out in support with version 4 cp7.  (yes they used to be called cp's.  Don't ask.  :) )

Over the years I have held a few roles with EV from being Tech Lead, Backline Engineering Support, Solutions Architect, Lead Technical Architect, and Regional Product Manager.  After nearly 5 years I am now working for a partner and am still excited about where EV has come and where it is going.  I think version 8 has been a great success so far and can't wait to see what comes next.  

I plan to blog an article at least once a month. (that may seem low, but I do have a full-time job too!) That said, I would like to hear from you about things you would like to see...
