Solutions1:

Make sure that the following hotfix is installed: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/973247

Solutions2:

Disable Anonymous access on servicelocator.asmx page

Issue:

Users running Outlook 2003 might not be able to see full Free/Busy Information:

Solution:

This is because in SP1 outlook 2003 publishes free/busy information but only can view 60 days of information (1 month after and 1 month before), there is no workarounds per my knowledge.

Issue:

when you move a user from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 you might get the following error:

[PS] C:\>New-MoveRequest –Identity ‘user@domain.com’ -TargetDatabase ‘Mailbox Database 0036434759’
Mailbox database ‘ad2f88b9-670e-4cfb-a91c-5f9f10f3da04’ is offline.
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [New-MoveRequest], RemoteTransientException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : E9F32A3C,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.NewMoveRequest

Solution:

Make sure that inheritable permissions are propagating on the user’s mailbox.

#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″.”.

Solution:

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

Remove:

MS:ORGANIZATIONNAME/ORGANIZATIONNAME

CCMAIL: at ORGANIZATIONNAME

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

Solution:

you need to make changes as per this KB:

http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2009/11/18/453251.aspx

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

Since Exchange 2010 SP1 upgrade, Mail Submission service is restarting every 24 hours in the early morning

Symptom

————–

MSExchangeMailSubmission will crash once a days

 

Cause

———-

A maintenance thread kicks in every 24 hours to update watermarks of idle mailboxes (worst case scenario is one crash per day). If a server has a database with zero user mailboxes or a database where all user mailboxes are ‘inactive’ (did not process any event, e.g. none of the users sent email) then the call to SaveWatermarks() fails. As a result, it may cause msexchangemailsubmission service crashes

 

Bug Status

—————

In process

 

 

Action Plan

—————

1.    Create some mailboxes on the “blank” database

2.    If problem still persists, please activate at least one mailbox each day, such as sending a message

——————————————————

when you create a new user the following event is created:

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″.”.

Resolution:

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

Remove:

MS:ORGANIZATIONNAME/ORGANIZATIONNAME

CCMAIL: at ORGANIZATIONNAME

 

 

#Lync #OCS #ucoms Restricted OCS Deployment ports requirements and firewall rules details

November 1, 2010 Leave a comment

we have been working with the OCS PG last week in preparing a detailed table for ports requirements and firewall configuration for restricted OCS deployments.

the difference in this table that we have detailed as much as we can the different communication ports and firewall requirements for all of the segmented including internet, internal and enterprise voice communications.

we also detailed the ports and communication paths so it can be reader-friendly for the Security/Firewall engineers.

the wiki assumes that servers are deployed in the same VLAN and separated by a very restricted firewall configuration, Edge is deployed in the DMZ and again restricted firewall configuration is required.

currently the document still being reviewed, but if you are interested in following it you will find it on the wiki, here http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/ocs-2007-r2-firewall-port-settings.aspx, we will be publishing another one for Lync as well linked to the wiki.

we will validate the wiki this week at a customer location and we will publish the updates later.

Thanks to Tom, Rick and Rui for their support during creating this wiki.

well done ya kimooooooooooo
