After we installed a SharePoint Server 2010 CU, we noticed that the document ID service started showing strange behaviour.
It follows the same template as before:
[Prefix]-[List ID]-[Item ID], where we would expect a new list on a site to have an ID of 1.
Now it seems as though it assigns a random 8/9 digit number.
We use scripts and templates to create new sites and their new lists so we would a list with ID 1 to correspond to a certain type of list or library. The random numbers are an inconvenience and aren’t isolated to new sites.
Does anyone have any advice on how to flush this out?
I appreciate lists/libraries that have already been created cannot be reset but I would like to have new lists begin exhibiting normal behaviour again
