#Exchange #Exchange2010 custom KBs

January 11, 2011 Leave a comment

here is my KBs for the last 2 weeks:

KB1: Error when you try to move a user’s mailbox from Exchange 2003 database to another server or another database : The information store could not be opened. The MAPI provider failed. MAPI 1.0 ID no: 8004011d-0289-00000000 Error: -2147221231

Cause/Solution: the user is hidden from being displayed in the GAL, to move the use unhide the user from the GAL and try the move operation.

KB2: you create a new user the following error appear:

Failed to generate email addresses based on template “CCMAIL: at MEXDOMAIN01”. Additional message: “Failed to find the address type object in Active Directory for address type “CCMAIL:AMD64″.”.

Failed to generate email addresses based on template “MS:PRODUCTOSF/MEXDOMAIN0”. Additional message: “Failed to find the address type object in Active Directory for address type “MS:AMD64″.”.


To resolve this issue you need to edit your policy in Active Directory using ADSIEdit tool and delete disabledGatewayProxy entries of MS and CCMAIL

1. On your DC, open adsiedit.msc (Support Tools must be installed in order to be able to add ADSIEdit)

2. Connect to Configuration Naming Context

3. Browse to Services –> Microsoft Exchange –> YOURORGANIZATON –> Recipient Policies

4. On the right click Properties of Default Policy

5. Click Show only objects with entries

6. Find disabledGatewayProxy

7. Edit its content




KB3: users moved from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 SP1, or after applying Exchange 2010 SP1 cannot update distribution group membership with error

Changes to the distribution list membership cannot be saved. You do not have sufficient permission to peform this operation on this object


you need to make changes as per this KB:

also note that being Exchange administrator doesn’t mean that you will be able to manage the group, in Exchange 2010 SP1 the code checks if the user creating the change is the owner of the group or not, in the RTM version that wasn’t there, you can modify the groups using powershell to use BypassSecurityGroupManagerCheck (pre-SP1 behavior).

KB4: cannot open Exfolders on Exchange 2010 with error Exception: The Active directory user wasn’f found.

Solution: Open adsiedit and check if there any objects in CN=Servers,CN=Fist administrative group,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=<Exchange Org Name>,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=domain,DC=local. Is the container “CN=Servers” empty, then delete it

ننا و طنط سعاد

January 2, 2011 2 comments

بعد احداث الاسكندرية اول امبارح مش عارف ليه افتكرت جدتي اللي بناديلها ننا و طنط سعاد جارتنا اللي قودامها بالظبط

من يوم ما اوعا و طنط سعاد و جدتي راشقين مع بعض و كنت دايما بشوف عمو شكري الله يرحمه بيقعد مع جدي الليه يرحمه هو كمان بيتكلموا بالساعات

الصداقة اللي كانت بينهم عمرها ما لفتت نظري و كانت شئ طبيعي ، لم اهتم بها الا اول امبارح

ماما كانت بتحكيلي ايام زمان ازاي كانو بيتجمعوا ايام حفلات ام كلثوم و كان جدتي بتعمل كحك و بسكوت و طنط سعاد كمان و يتلموا علشان يسمعوا ام كلثوم

و ازاي عمو شكري كان بيحب يقعد يسمع الخطب يوم الجمعة مع جدي لو منزلشي الصلاة لظروف صحته

عمري ما اتقال قودامي انه طنط سعاد دي مسيحية منكلمهاش او عمو شكري ده كوفتس او اي من الكلام الاهبل اللي بيتقال

ابن طنط سعاد (نبيل) سافر امريكا من زمان و اما خالي سافر برضو كان واحد من الناس اللي دايما بتسأل عليه و اما طنط سعاد بتسافر امريكا كانت بتسيب مفتاح الشقة مع ننا علشان تسقي الزرع و تحاسب الراجل بتاع الكهربا و تشقر على البيت

اما جدتي تعبت و سافرت امريكا طنط سعاد خلت نبيل يسافر من الولاية اللي هو مقيم فيها الى نيويورك علشان يسأل على ننا و خلته يكلمها من هناك علشان تكلم جدتي و تطمن عليها

الناس دي و رغم محدودية ثقافتها و اطلاعها (مقارنة لم هو متاح الان في عصرنا) استطاعت انها فعلا تعمل نسيج اجتماعي وطني و انها تتكيف مع كل المتغيرات و تعيش مع بعض في حب وود

النهاردة و رغم تقدمنا التكنولوجي لكن فكرنا بيعاني من التأخر و التخلف و للاسف اتنين جارين مش عارفين يعيشو مع بعض

التخلف ده احنا اللي حطينا نفسنا فيه، و بقول لكل اخ مسيحي ان كنت فاكر انه الحادثة دي ضايقتك لوحدك فانت غلطان  او انه التخل ده انت بتعاني منه انت لوحدك فانت غلطان انت كمان و اوعا تفتكر انه المسلمين او الاسلام بيدعو لكده

بس هو تخلف الفكر و انتشار الامية الفكرية و الثقافية برغم تقدم العلم هو السبب في انتشارالطائفية و الافكار المتخلفة دي كلها

و ياريتنا نرجع زمان

و على فكرة ننا و طنط سعاد دول مش شخصيات وهمية دي جدتي مقيمة في شقة 14 عمارة 99 عثمان ابن عفان و طنط سعاد في الشقة اللي قودامها مباشرة

و عزائي لكل اخواتي
