I have an AD 2003 that has the MaxPageSize set to 3000.  Is this enough to really see a performance issue with DC's and Exchange?  I have about 1700 users.  Can I safely leave it at this 3000 setting or should it always be left at 1000 no matter what?

What is your reason for wanting to increase it?

Unless there is a strong reason why I always leave this set to the default.

I was asked the question from a vendor trying to implement a product just last week.  This is what I sent them in response.  In short paging is there for a reason, it is set to 1,000 for a reason.  Better come up with a really good reason to change this value haha.

I agree try to leave it at 1,000, see this question I helped with http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/LDAP/Q_24099175.html

Why did you change it to 3000 in the first place?

Joe Richards...who I think is the top AD guy around had a fun blog that also mentioned this in the last few days

2) Go beat on the vendor to fix their app.

Joe does get to the point :)

Thanks

Thanks guys.  We set this 4 years ago without a whole lot of concerns to address the scanning functionality of printers.  The executive assistants were complaining that they could scan documents directly to the boss's email because the lookup didnt return the name of the boss.  Going from 1000 to 3000 seemed like a reasonable thing but now we are re-evaluating.  Appreciate the quick response and links.

If it has been running for 4 years with no issues you are probably ok to leave it as is but generally it is a good idea to not change it.
