    I am getting this message when attempting to add more than 800 attributes to
    a multi-valued attribute in ADAM (sp1).

    I see from a post from 2004, that win2k sp4 had a limit of 800. Does ADAM
    sp1 have the same limit? Is there anyway around this?

    thanks - i did see that workaround, and i wouldn't have to employ it if it
    was actually accepting ~1300.

    But I'm definitely hitting 800 or 850 (this list i'm loading has 881 values
    in it) - is there some setting that moves it to 1300 (or the max), or am I
    just hitting the lower end of the approximate limit?

    it is ADAM sp1 on 2003 server.

    I think the limit depends on the size of attribute data
    you are using, so if you only get ~800 values before
    exceeding the limit I guess your values are larger
    than the "average" used for the approx. limit of 1300.

    The ~800 vs. ~1300 is not configurable it (likely) comes from
    the version of the ESE database that underlies the directory
    and ADAM SP1 ESE on W2k3 should correspond to the
    ~1300 guideline.

  5. Interesting. Can you post the server error string that you are getting. In
    ADSI, this is ADsGetLastError(). In LDP, you can get it by enabling
    "auto-server-error" in options/general, and attempting the failing mod
