  • Exchange 2010 Gotcha - #4

    Public Folder Contacts Can't Replicate If you have a public folder contact that includes an e-mail address, there is also an e-mail address type field that is associated with every e-mail address. Note: You cannot see this e-mail address type field by default - but it's still there. To view it...

  • Exchange 2010 Gotcha - #3

    The TrustedInstaller - Isn't. Generally, when applying patches (whether service packs or hotfixes or rollups), the installation process will automatically acquire all the necessary permissions - if the user executing the process CAN acquire those permissions. This is especially relevant under Server...

  • Exchange 2010 Gotcha - #2

    Incoming e-mail CAN'T come in! This issue is not exclusive to Exchange 2010 - it also exists in Exchange 2007. The default receive connector created by the Exchange setup process does not include permissions to include "Anonymous users" on the default server permission group. Microsoft...

  • The ms-Exch-Store-Admin permission

    In last week's blog post, Exchange 2010 Gotcha - #1 , I use the Add-AdPermission PowerShell cmdlet to add a set of permissions to each mailbox database. One of those permissions was the ms-Exch-Store-Admin permission. If you've ever installed any BlackBerry software before, or ever installed...

  • Exchange 2010 Gotcha - #1

    As I work through migrations to Exchange Server 2010 with my various clients, I'm developing a list of Exchange 2010 "gotchas". Not necessarily things that are earth-shattering, but do have the potential to be surprising to administrators. Gotcha #1 revolves around the fact that an Offline...

  • Exchange Server 2010 IPC

    IPC stands for, in this case, Information Protection and Control. Last week, I gave a presentation for Microsoft TechNet Webcasts on IPC functionality present in Exchange Server 2010. Several folks have told me it's pretty good. It's about 53 minutes long and you can access it by clicking the...

  • Where oh where, did my AD site go...[Alternate title: It's the DNS, stupid.]

    I recently had a very confusing issue arise at one of my Exchange 2007 clients and I decided to share it with you. At this particular company, an Active Directory site is reserved for Exchange, and there are two domain controllers (both global catalog servers) in that AD site. The front-end is two CAS...

  • Speeding Reboot When Exchange is on a DC/GC

    As I've noted in several previous blog entries (such as here and here ), installing Exchange on a domain controller and/or a global catalog server is not a best practice. However, if you are running SBS (Small Business Server) or EBS (Essential Business Server) or if you only have a single server...

  • The Experts Conference - TEC'2010

    For the third time, I'll be speaking at the upcoming The Experts Conference, sponsored by Quest. I'll be discussing using Exchange Web Services (EWS) from PowerShell -- and for some reason, my abstract isn't yet posted on the conference website! I need to get that corrected. TEC'2010...

  • Exchange Server 2010 RTM and Organizational Health miscalculation

    Exchange Server 2010 is starting to get some traction, with companies beginning to install it and put it into their test labs. An issue - that is obviously a flat out bug - is that the Exchange Management Console (EMC) for Exchange Server 2010 misreports the number of Enterprise Client Access Licenses...
