Turns data retrieval services on or off. By default, data retrieval services are enabled. This property is equivalent to the Enable Data Retrieval Services user interface setting that is located on the Data Retrieval Service page of the SharePoint Central Administration Web site.

stsadm -o setproperty

   -propertyname data-retrieval-services-enabled

   -propertyvalue {True | False}

   [-url] <http://server_name>

The syntax for the getproperty operation is:

stsadm -o getproperty

   propertyname data-retrieval-services-enabled

   [-url] <http://server_name>

You can substitute -pn for -propertyname and -pv for -propertyvalue.

The following table shows possible values.


Name Value


Gets or sets the name of the property.


True: Enables data retrieval services for the site collection. This is the default setting and is applied to the following data retrieval services:

  • Windows SharePoint Services


  • SOAP Passthrough


False: Disables data retrieval services for the site collection.


Typically, a path to the URL of the Web application, in the form http://server_name.

To disable data retrieval services, use the following syntax:

stsadm -o setproperty -pn data-retrieval-services-enabled -pv true
