Upload Huge PSTs to Exchange Online / Office 365 Using AzCopy
article #1373, updated 31 days ago

One can use this to import really big ones, dozens of gigabytes in size, imports which will crash, hang, and otherwise cough on Outlook very easily. Runs directly to folders inside of mailboxes. The amazing Yvonne Wynkoop found the first really good set of instructions we have seen:

blog.natfan.io/importing-psts

Mysteries do abound about the Microsoft-provided command line tool AzCopy, not the least being the fact that there is a version 10 and a version 8.1. Items as of this writing:

  • Version 8.1 is downloadable from Office 365, and works. Have no clue what 10 is for.
  • Usage and download of it, is now through Office 365 Security & Compliance, Information Governance, Import.
  • When you run it for an upload, add “/NC:2” to the end of the command line. This increases its speed and stability quite a lot, and prevents timeouts. Default is reportedly 24. Perhaps the developers are sitting on Google Fiber?
  • If it times out, just restart it carefully, it will usually continue where it left off.

If the above works for you, use the same number when downloading PSTs from eDiscovery, via registry edit:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\eDiscovery\ExportTool]
"DownloadConcurrency"="2"

Windows Networking Speed Tweaks
article #1376, updated 32 days ago

Recently received these. Not all work in all versions of Windows. Run these commands in administrative CMD. Some will take effect at next reboot.

netsh int tcp set global chimney=disabled
netsh int tcp set global rss=disabled
netsh int ip set global taskoffload=disabled
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
netsh int tcp set supplemental custom congestionprovider=none
netsh int tcp set global ecncapability=disabled
netsh int tcp set global timestamps=disabled
netsh int tcp set supplemental custom congestionprovider = ctcp
netsh int tcp set global ecncapability=enabled

Improve speed and prevent timeouts downloading PSTs from Office 365
article #1311, updated 35 days ago

If you let the eDiscovery Export Tool time out, it will eventually give you a link:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/securitycompliance/increase-download-speeds-when-exporting-ediscovery-results

which has the registry edit below. No explanation is given, but it does say that adjustment of the number (in some direction?) can help.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\eDiscovery\ExportTool]
"DownloadConcurrency"="2"

Windows PE / 10PE / LiveCD / Boot CD / USB for PC Repair and Hardware Testing
article #1013, updated 49 days ago

Many old friends, e.g. Hiren’s and UBCD4Win, are no longer in development, and do not boot on quite a lot of newer hardware; for a while there was no clear replacement. The only one known to this writer that works well on current made-for-10 hardware, is Medicat:

Permit NTLMv1 and v2
article #1375, updated 50 days ago

Apparently, not only is there SMB1, SMB2, and SMB3, but there is also NTLMv1 and NTLMv2. If we need to access older NASes and the like reliably, we may need to create or set this DWORD:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\LmCompatibilityLevel

to 1.
