If you currently hold a maintenance and support contract, you will continue to receive our award-winning support until your contract expires, or until May 1st, 2019, whichever occurs first.

Understanding the Local Configuration Store

  • Last updated on
This article applies to Barracuda ArchiveOne version 7.3 and higher.

From ArchiveOne version 7.3 onward, there is a set of configuration files stored locally on each machine where one or more of the following ArchiveOne components are installed:

  • ArchiveOne Services
  • Search and Retrieval websites
  • ArchiveOne Admin console

These configuration files form the Local Configuration Store (LCS). There are some settings in these files that you may need to modify in order to reconfigure ArchiveOne to work with specific settings in your environment. The LCS files are stored in the following location:


This location contains the individual .ini files and a README.txt file containing a brief overview of the LCS.


The Admin.ini is present on any machines where the ArchiveOne admin console component is installed. This file contains the local configuration information for the admin console and rarely needs amending; however, you may be asked by a Barracuda Networks Technical Support technician to add or modify lines such as Trace=5 in the file when performing diagnostics.


The service.ini file contains configuration information that is applied to all ArchiveOne services, unless there is a specific .ini file for that service to override the default settings. By default, this file contains many of the settings that can be used to modify ArchiveOne behavior. Most of these settings are either switched off or commented out, but you may be advised or requested by Barracuda Networks Technical Support to enable or set a value for one of the settings. To do this you either remove the semi-colon from the start of the line or simply replace the 0 with the required value. For example, to turn on a setting, change the value 0 to 1, and to set a value for a static profile for ArchiveOne to use, enter the profile name.

Do not edit any of the files that are prefixed with system_ as these contain settings that must not be altered.

Apply a Setting to a Specific ArchiveOne Service

You can apply a setting to an individual service and override the behavior dictated in the Service.ini file.

In this example, you change the time that hourly PST processing occurs on the Archive server to 25 minutes past each hour:

  1. In the LocalConfigurationStore folder, create a new text file using the following format: service_<service_process_name>.ini where <service_process_name> is the name of the process for that service.
    For example, for the ArchiveOne PST Service (aonepstservice.exe) title the INI file: service_aonepstservice.ini
  2. Copy the first two lines from the service.ini file into the new file:
  3. On a new line add the value:
  4. Save and close the file.

The setting is applied dynamically and no restart is required.
