Policies and archive bug

Exercise caution when creating a Policy with Archive Setting -- it could cause a server crash.

Exercise care when you create a Policy with Archive Setting.

Using the default archive setting, the field "Enable client based scheduled archiving" in tab Schedule is Enabled.

This causes many compact tasks to start at 12:00 in the server, and may even crash the server.

To prevent this, disable the field "Enable client based scheduled archiving" or define a local schedule.
