Veritas Enterprise Vault (EV) is an enterprise information archive platform developed by Veritas Technologies. It is part of the company's "Information Governance" suite. Enterprise Vault has the ability to archive from various sources such as Microsoft Exchange, SMTP, IBM Domino , Microsoft SharePoint and various File Systems (Windows NTFS and Linux/Unix file systems) with the ability to store on a multiple of storage platforms, such as NTFS, NetApp, Centera, SMB and WORM. The data archived is indexed, classified, de-duplicated and securely stored.

Enterprise Vault was originally developed at Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) by a group of developers who had previously been the engineering team for Digital's VMS based ALL-IN-1 office and messaging system. After DEC was acquired by Compaq Computer Corporation the Enterprise Vault team was terminated just after Version 1 of the product was shipped.

Technical Director Nigel Dutt approached Edward Forwood of broker Durlacher with a proposal to start a company to develop and sell the product. They consequently acquired the rights to the product and formed kVault Software Limited in late 1999 with initial funding from Durlacher. The four years from 2000–2004 saw greatly improved sales and eventual acquisition by VERITAS Software in 2004. Veritas was subsequently acquired by Symantec in 2005 for $13.5B. However, on February 1st 2016, Symantec completed its sale of Veritas to the Carlyle group for $7.4B and Enterprise Vault again reverted to being a Veritas product.

The following procedure describes the configuration of the Vault Service account. If you run Exchange archiving tasks under a service account other than the Vault Service account, run the procedure against this other account.

Exchange has a default throttling policy which restricts user accounts to no more than 20 open connections to the server. This restriction on the Vault Service account would cause failures of the Enterprise Vault tasks that run under the account.

You must remove the restriction from the Vault Service account. Enterprise Vault includes a PowerShell script called SetEVThrottlingPolicy.ps1, which creates a new policy and assigns it to the Vault Service account to remove the restriction.

Note the following requirements for this script:

If you archive from both Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2013 or later, you must run the script in the Exchange Management Shell on an Exchange 2013 or later server.

If both Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2013 or later are present in your environment, the script automatically configures Exchange 2010 servers before later servers. The script includes the option to configure Exchange throttling policies separately for each Exchange version. If you choose to use this option, you must configure the Exchange 2010 throttling policy first.
