Do you eat to live, or do you live to eat? If you prescribe to the latter, like me, hopefully you’ll understand why I injected thoughts on my favorite vegetable into what’s supposed to be a technology perspective. Oh well...

On this particular morning, I’m thinking about onions first and foremost, and how extremely picky I am with these delightfully fragrant, tasty bulbs. At the grocery store, my careful selection process is as follows:

  • Look for yellow onions that are the size of my palm, and not too much bigger or smaller.
  • The desired onions must still have most of the outer brown skin intact, without any of the creamy, internal white skin inside exposed. Some roots left are fine.
  • The desired onions must be firm to the grasp all the way around and not have any gnats or other insects circling nearby. Nothing squishy or semi-squishy please. And nothing foul-smelling!

So how does my onion selection relate to data...

Good news. As some of you may be aware the previously released Outlook 2007 hotfix meant to resolve the maximum number of MAPI connections possible when using Outlook 2007 on an EV server actually caused a series of issues within Outlook 2007 itself causing knock on problems within EV.

Microsoft recently released an updated hotfix for this rollup which resolved these issues and now gives you an option for using Outlook 2007 in a performant manner on an EV server.

The hotfix was released towards the end of February and we have just finished our QA cycles to ensure it does the trick. It does, and so we invite you to start using this hotfix in production, on your EV servers, where appropriate.

For those that don't have it, the hotfix package can be accessed here:

I recently blogged here to announce the availability of the instructor led File System Archiving training course. Initially the course was just scheduled in the UK. Dates have now been set for North America. You can view the schedule and register through the link here.

We have had a hole in our Enterprise Vault training catalogue to date by not having a dedicated File System Archiving course. FSA is touched on in the standard Exchange course but it does not give you the knowledge you need to know to install, configure, manage and troubleshoot.

We have now developed a specific 4-day instructor led course dedicated to FSA. The first public teach will be in the Symantec, Reading, UK offices March 15th-18th. Registration is now open here.

The course is aimed at customers, consultants, support engineers, SE's or generally anyone that has a vested interest in File System Archiving. The full course description can be found ...

As some of you may be aware there are some issues with using Outlook 2007 on the Enterprise Vault server. These issues often require you to make configuration changes to reduce the number of Exchange connections being made by the server (see

This issue is a result of Outlook behaviour, and not Enterprise Vault, and the required fix is a modification to how Outlook 2007 handles lots of simultaneous MAPI connections*

Well we're pleased to annnounce that MS have addressed this issue in a recent Microsoft Outlook 2007 hot fix that can be obtained using the following link:

We've tested the hotfix internally via our normal...

As the end of year zooms towards us I thought I'd mention a couple of useful Blog posts that some of my colleagues published recently which certainly  deserve to be highlighted.

Rob Wilcox recently wrote a great article entitled "Enterprise Vault 9.0.1 - Which client should I install" that discusses the key considerations around upgrading to the latest EV client code.

Karl Woodrow also published a great article, a short but sweet piece entitled "Exchange Server 2010 SP1 Self-signed certificates back on the menu in EV 9.0.1"  this is perhaps self explanatory but highlights the fact that...

We're pleased to announce that Enterprise Vault V9.0.1 (SP1) is now available & as always you can download this latest release from the Fileconnect portal (see below).

V9 was first released in September most notably to support Exchange 2010 and this was followed by a client only release of 9.0.1 in late October to support Outlook2010. However, the latest V9.0.1 package comprises a server & client update which means for those of you who normally wait for the first SP before upgrading then you will want to check out the release notes and start planning your upgrade.

You might also want to subscribe to the Late Breaking News for 9.0.1 support note to be alerted of any major...

A question we have started to hear more frequently is "how can I move my EV server(s) to new hardware". I guess this shouldn't surprise anyone because more and more customers are moving to Windows 2008 R2 and adopting the x64 platform throughout their server estate. Another reason to consider this is that when we release V10 next year, Windows 2008 R2 will be a pre-requisite. Therefore if you’re thinking of upgrading to V9 in the near future, you might also want to think about upgrading to Windows 2008 R2. This could mean that you’ll need to but some new hardware or even perhaps move EV to a x64 Virtual Machine.

Whatever your plans you will probably soon start to think about how to actually move EV to a new server. Previously I would have referred to you to the Disaster Recover section of our admin guide which is a great starting point. However, I’m pleased to say that we now have a new document out which deals with scenario I...
