Compacting

Since we upgraded to ZCS 8.8.15 a couple weeks ago, our users are experiencing a problem where Outlook Connector will just start compacting without asking them, and it takes quite a while too. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hello,
we are experiencing this behaviour, too.
Does anybody knows anything about that? Is this configurable?

Regards
Joerg

There is supposedly as switch in the customizable msi to disable autocompacting but I haven't gotten it to work yet.

FYI Patrick,
I found registry settings that sound interesting under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Zimbra

Especially those:
AutoCompactDays
AutoCompactDBMinSize
AutoCompactShowProgressUI
AutoCompactZDBMinSize

What I try next is set AutoCompactDays to 0 (it is 7 now...)

Excellent. Please let me know if that works for you or not, so that I can try it.

Update:
setting AutoCompactDays to 0 is shity... Then it compacts every time you start outlook...
Will give 30 a try... Sounds reasonable for me...
