error when migrating users to Live@Edu user UserPrincipalName is not valid SMTP address #msexchange #office365

June 27, 2012 Leave a comment

Symptoms: you are synchronizing users using FIM 2010 and OLSync to Live@EDU domain, everything is configured and when you run the MA you get:

Metaverse object 1%: The expected generated Windows Live ID 2% is invalid. Reason: The UserPrincipalName of MetaVerse object “MV GUID” used to generate a Host WindowsLiveId ‘@domain.edu’ is not a valid Smtp Address.

Solution: make sure that the account used in synchronization is member of domain admin group permissions.

 

The error is 100% not related but that solved the problem.

you might get an NDR 550 550 5.4.1 Relay Access Denied (state 13). when you move to office 365 #office365 #msExchange #microsoft

you might have seen that error, or you might get it if you deleted your domain from Office 365 and migrated it to a new account, or recently created your domain, or it has been a period of de-activation, the reasons might vary but here is the solution:

– follow the steps here to connect powershell remotely, http://help.outlook.com/en-us/140/cc952755.aspx

 

– issue the following command: set-acceptedomdain <domainname> –outboundonly $True followed by set-acceptedomdain <domainname> –outboundonly $flase

you will have to wait 30-45 minutes for information to propagate to Edge servers cloud @ Microsoft.

have fun.
