Meeting request

dexterhome used Ask the Experts™
Hi Guys.

I have an issue with Exchange server not sending meeting requests.
It just gives the following error when sending (see code)

I have had to re-install Exchange and have only just got it working - with issues
OAB is not working and requires fixing (another question)
Exchange box has an underlying Com+ issues (different question)

After your re-install - di you re-apply Service Packs?


Integrated SP1 anyway - But have NOT installed any roll ups.

I meant to, but have not had chance.

Have downloaded RU8 ready.

It is worth downloading RU9 - it is the latest one.  Once up-to-date - please see if the error re-occurs and report back.
Basic rule with Microsoft - if it does not work - download latest updates and then see if it is still broken.

alanhardisty - Have you installed RU9 - Does it take a long time (how long is Transport service down) + does it require a restart of the server..

I am not sure - have never applied it!  Sorry.


I went with RU8 as I already had it downloaded and knew how long it would take..  Appears to have worked a treat..  Meeting requests are now working all OK..
Thanks a lot..

Great news - Glad you got it working.


I have now opened a new question as this did not fully fix the issue.

I tested from home in the owa and it worked fine - but when actually use Outlook it does not?
