Creating a dedicated backup-network for Exchange DAG

DAG is a very useful technology, we can all agree on that. It is, in fact, so simple and useful that I’d say that everyone who can afford an extra Exchange-server license and storage, should use it. And that is, frankly, pretty much everyone. Best case scenario, you have nodes on completely separate hardware and cover both database, server and storage failure; worst case you’re on the same virtualized host and cover database failure. Either […]

Enabling impersonation in Exchange 2010

There are a bajillion blogs about this, but there’s also alot of wishy-washy stuff around it. So I figured it might be worthwhile condensing it all down to what you really want to know. The scenario is this: You have an application (in this case Dynamics CRM), which connects to EWS and wants to use a service user to interact with mailboxes. In 2007 you’d have to grant rights; but that is, frankly awful to […]

Credential prompts in Outlook / Exchange 2013 & 2010 – Updated!

Coexistence between Exchange 2010 and 2013 is fairly new still; so a few bugs is to be expected. This is however a rather large one. Credential prompts in Outlook (I’ve seen this in both 2010 and 2013) is usually an indicator of authentication/virtual directory configuration errors.   What I’ve seen a few times now is that if you have this scenario: User mailbox is on Exchange 2013 User accesses resoruces (public folders or shared mailbox) […]

Installing Exchange 2013 CU1 in co-existence

A simple walkthrough of the install of  Exchange 2013 CU1 in a Exchange 2010 environment. This is based on a clean server 2012 install. Just to emphasize one thing first: CAS-arrays are out. CAS in 2013 is just a simple proxy to redirect to the correct user mailbox, so they are no longer needed. Download CU1 from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=38176, and extract. Download and install the Microsoft Unified Communications Managed API 4.0, Core Runtime 64-bit from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=260990 Download and install […]

Exchange 2013 CU1 released!

Finally! This one has been long in the wait. CU1 enables co-existence with older versions of Exchange (2007/2010), which to be honest most have. Released just now; so not much experience with it so far, but part of the delay has been due to extensive testing, so I imagine it’s all good. Details on the Exchange team blog: http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2013/04/02/released-exchange-server-2013-rtm-cumulative-update-1.aspx And of course the download: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=38176 This is a 1.3GB download, so I imagine this is […]

0x80200049 Offline Address Book-error

This totally stumped me for a while. I had a few random users getting an 0x80200049 error when downloading the offline address book. I went over everything on Exchange (2010) and everything looked fine and dandy. Even tried resetting the Outlook profile, to no avail. Well, lo and behold; Outlook uses BITS to download the OAB; and if the BITS queue goes full (60 jobs I think), it stops. Intuitive, right. No mention of BITS anywhere, […]

Exchange ActiveSync features

So I stumbled upon this handy chart: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Exchange_ActiveSync_Clients Which cured my head-scratching over why I couldn’t see a recovery password for certain devices. Not all Active Sync clients support it. In fact, most don’t. Could be useful to keep in mind when deciding company policy.

Should I upgrade to Exchange 2013

There are nine million Exchange blogs on the web. That’s a fact. So by now you probably know that Exchange 2013 is the bees knees. I won’t bore you with all the technical bits; but I will try to shed some light on the one question that really matters: “Should I upgrade, and if so, when?” Now; Exchange 2010 is a great product. Exchange is really one of those products that hands down get better […]

Set default Calendar Permissions in Exchange 2010

So this is a common request: you need to set calendar permissions for all your users, so they all share details, beyond simple free/busy. Not really a problem, but I’ll save you the bother of reinventing the wheel. Here’s a script which does just that: $mailboxes = get-mailbox $mailboxes | foreach { $user=$_.Alias $path=$user+”:\Calendar” Set-MailboxFolderPermission –identity $path -User Default -Accessrights LimitedDetails } Now, keep in mind the following: This is for ALL mailboxes. Users should […]

Exchange 2010 Mailbox report

This is not really that hard, but it’s something many Exchange admins find themselves needing: A script which emails mailbox statistics and a schedule task which fires it offonce a month. Now I did this for a customer with about 200 users, who just wanted some control over the mailbox sizes, as they don’t have any quota on them. For large enterprise environments, this is not necessarily the best solution, but it works. So what […]
