Hi Everyone,

First, what type of Database does KMS use?, can we access it for reporting purposes? (i.e. exchange & crystal)?

Also, What are the size/message limitations of the database?

We use exchange and some of the public folders have more than 60,000 messages. Is this possible with KMS?

KMS doesn't use any database yet. It is planned to future versions.

There are limitations only by filesystem on server, where is KMS running. No problems with KMS on Linux and 65.000 messages in folder.

I'm using W2k. What is the limitation?

Will the database support be included in 6.0?

I'm looking to move away from Exchange 5.5. We use Public Folders extensibly and at this point we have over 4 gig's in the them. Will this be an issue?

Messages are currently stored as individual files within a directory structure under KMS. Thus, the file system limitation applies here. The limits for NTFS 5 are pretty high and you're highly unlikely to max them out, see below.

For more information, see: all/reskit/en-us/Default.asp?url=/resources/documentation/Wi ndows/XP/all/reskit/en-us/prkc_fil_tdrn.asp

If you are looking for users and other configuration information, these are currently stored as XML files in the KMS program directory.

Hope this helps,
