    Hi Folks,

    I received the error ( with AdsiEdit) "Too many items in the folder OU=XZ.
    Please refine the query parameters or increase the maximum number of items
    per folder".

    The OU in question has over 17,000 objects ( OU's and inets).

    Is this configurable in either the Configuration Partition or in the Schema

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I did a google and found the error, but no solution.

    that message is just telling you that there are too many items to show
    in the ADSIEdit view; it's no indication of a limitation in the directory.

    If you select the node in the ADSIEdit tree view that contains that OU
    then in the View menu select Filter you can change the default (10000)
    of items to show.
