Overview [1]#

MaxPageSize controls the maximum number of objects that are returned in a single search result, independent of how large each returned object is.

MaxPageSize is part of the LDAP policy in Active Directory that is revealed in the supportedLDAPPolicies attribute in the RootDSE.

Hardcoded in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2[2]#

An LDAP application may return less information when a query is sent to a Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 domain controller than when sent to a Windows Server 2003 domain controller.

Changing the MaxPageSize Value #

The value is stored in the LDAP policy in Active Directory. You can change the value with Ntdsutil.exe

The value is "hardcoded" in 2008/2008 R2. However the dSHeuristic attribute could be set to control the value.[3]

Overcoming the MaxPageSize Value #

Using the Simple Paged Results Control can help with the retrieval of entries beyond the MaxPageSize value.
