Yesterday we installed Rollup 1 for Exchange 2010. This morning we received complaints about the following;

The displayname of the archive mailboxes of all displayed SharedMailboxes in Outlook is the same as the displayname of the archive mailbox of the personal mailbox.

My own mailbox is called Sidney.Mulder@contoso.com and my archive mailbox is called "Online Archive -  Sidney.Mulder@contoso.com"
I have a sharedmailbox info@contoso.com and it's archive mailbox is called "Online Archive - Sidney.Mulder@contoso.com".

Does anybody know of a hotfix to correct this problem. Else i have to rollback Rollup 1.

Best regards,

Hello Andrew,

Before the rollup installation all Online Archives of SharedMailboxes had their own name.
So the archive mailbox of info@contoso.com should say "Online Archive - Info@contoso.com"

Think of this scenario; Someone has multiple sharedmailboxes, lets say; info@contoso.com, hr@contoso.com, phonebook@contoso.com and reception@contoso.com. In our pre Rollup 1 era al archive mailboxes were clearly distinguishable from eachother by name. Now the archive mailboxes of the four sharedmailboxes have the same name as my own archive mailbox. Not very handy when searching for a specific archive.

Best regards,

Sorry I misread your original question. Yes as far as i am aware they all should have their own name as you state. Checking my system, they are shown with their unique names.

I am guessing that you are on SP3 (Hence rollup1). I have not yet done this, and from what you are saying, i dont think i will :(

Yes i would go back too.

Just an update before closure.

This is a known issue. Every Rollup After SP3 has this issue. We still haven't installed RU1/RU2/RU3 or RU4 in production. Currently in migration to Exchange 2013. Thread can by closed.
