  1. A single mount point created as an Enterprise Vault volume and all its subfolders are supported. The subfolders can also be archiving targets. Neither nested mount points nor volume targets added above the mount point are supported.
  2. Enterprise Vault does not write files to the root of the mount point if you have logged in using the Vault Service account. You must create a folder within the mount point to hold the files.
  3. A single junction point created as an Enterprise Vault volume and all its subfolders are supported. The subfolders can also be archiving targets. Nested junction points are not supported.
  4. Enterprise Vault will retain Alternate Data Streams on Placeholders.
  5. An archived file that was originally compressed with Windows compression will be recalled uncompressed when accessed through FSA. The recalled file cannot be re-compressed with Windows compression due to a Microsoft limitation.
  6. Supports only the addition of physical file server paths hosting DFS shares as archiving targets. Does not support the addition of DFS Namespace as an archiving target. Supports access to placeholders from client computer using DFS virtual namespace. Enterprise Vault search displays the full physical file server path and not the DFS "virtual" path. For more information, see https://www.veritas.com/docs/100017525.
  7. Only internet shortcuts are supported. Placeholders are not supported.
  8. For best practices, refer https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100048427.
