In some way this error has a long history I think (Compare to error EA1D!)
I use Retain 18.104.22.168 and GroupWise 18.3 and newer. However if I start a search in my GroupWise client including the external archive I will receive error EA10 and of course there is no search result. Unfortunately I see this issue in several environments.
