Hello guys

I've a strange behavior in the last week on my EV environment (3 servers with EV 12.2.2).

During the task archiving i got a lot of this error:

Hello Davide,

Enterprise Vault Exchange Mailbox task for server queue a4:
Individual items to process. Only used for retrieswhenEnterprise Vault cannot directly
communicate with the StorageArchive queue of the Storage service.

This queue can be purged without consequences. See

As for the error, I see "Reference: TheSingleton/TC" 

Is that familiar to you? It might be that that / is causing issues. There is little to no information about the event. It might be best to log a support case for this. Is anything stopping you in upgrading to 12.5.3?

Hi Gertjan

I've already purged the queue without effect on the issue so probably isn't related with it.

I'm not familiar with "TheSingleton/TC", i think that is relate to some EV component.

In fact the error decoded from binary data is:

Invalid pointer (0x80004003)

I think that is something relate to Storage cache that is corrupted. 

I'm trying a way to delete it.
