Would reconfiguring MaxPageSize in Active Directory affect the operation of Directory and Resource Administrator?
Directory and Resource Administrator 6.x
Directory and Resource Administrator 7.x
When reconfiguring the MaxPageSize in Active Directory, the effect on Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) will depend on the scale of the change and the environment. If the increase is only a small percentage (10% or less) of the original size, everything should function normally. If there are a large number of Active Directory objects and the MaxPageSize is increased by 100% or more, the change may have a noticeable effect on the DRA clients. This is especially true if some domain controllers are across slower WAN links. Essentially, the DRA server itself will be able to handle the change without timing out. If, however, the server takes too long to return information, the MMC or Web Console client interfaces may display a timeout error message. If this occurs, the only way to correct the issue is to change the timeout value for the clients when connecting to the IIS server.
The primary consideration is efficiency. Will the change in speed keep the product from performing efficiently for the users? The answer depends on the scale of the change made and on what the users consider efficient. While changes of this sort have not been tested by NetIQ, modifying the MaxPageSize should not pose a functionality problem for DRA.
