Exchange 2010: The Properties on this Object Have Invalid Data.....

Hello Everyone,

     Trying to get a fresh isntall of exchange deployed but I'm having some issues.  I've managed to get it up and running and it can send and recieve emails with no issues.  The problem I'm facing is that on several users (not all) i get an error message when trying to access the properies of the recipient in EMC.  In Active Directory I can access all the properties with no problems.  Following the text int he error message:



"the properties on this object have invalid data.  if you click OK, default values will be used instead and will be saved if you do not change them before hitting apply or ok on the property page.  if you click cancel, the object will be displayed read-only and computed values will be retained"

Can the users access their mailboxes?  What happens if you run get-mailbox <user> | fl?  If it runs successfully, please let us know what is listed next to Database and ArchiveDatabase.  If the value next to database is blank or an invalid database, you can try running:

set-mailbox <user> -database <valid database name>  

Use caution though, because the command above will probably end up creating an empty mailbox for the user on the database you specify.  This is why I wonder what the end users are seeing.  

One more way you could check to see what database the mailbox is on would be via adsiedit on the Exchange server:

1.  click start > run > type adsiedit.msc
2.  click action > connect to
3.  under 'select a well known naming context' choose 'default naming context' and click ok
4.  on the left pane, browse to the OU containing your user
5.  right click the user object and choose properties
6.  find the attribute HomeMDB & verify that it is pointing to a valid database

YOU CAN DO SOME MAJOR DAMAGE POKING AROUND ADSIEDIT, SO USE CAUTION.  I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND YOU DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING, AND CLICK CANCEL TO CLOSE WINDOWS.

I am guessing the users were either created by a script or imported with a 3rd party product? Normal cause.

The users were already existing in AD.  Exchange is installed on the PDC and it pulled the users from AD.  Some of them work, others don't.  So there wasn't a third party software involved, just exchange looking around the forest for the users.

The Alies & Display name of those users should not use the unsupported characters.

Check the trailing space or brackets () in  Alies & Display name and if you found then just remove them and wait for Active Directory replication to complete.

Thank you for the suggestion, I tried that but it didn't work, I checked the event logs and when I try to access the user through there i generates an error, the text included is:

(PID 9072, Thread 29) Task Get-MailboxStatistics writing error when processing record of index 0. Error: Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Tasks.MdbAdminTaskException: The critical property 'Database' is missing in the ADUser object 'domainname.local/Users/*users name'.

I also noticed that if I try to hit apply after letting it put the default values then it tells me.
"Database is mandatory on usermailbox
Database is mandatory on usermailbox"

Just an update, if I try to create a new local move request, in the hopes of maybe forcing an association with exchange, i get the following:

Thank you for your help, I was able to dig through there and get most of the users added, we've since reloaded the server, but your solution did the trick to get the up and running.
