Ex13 - can't manually install Connection Filtering
Posted on 2014-09-29
Migrated from Ex07 -> Ex13 about a year ago. I have been trying to firm up anti-spam features and wanted to go back to the block lists I had working previously. I ran the script to install antispam, but saw that Connection Filtering is not there. I searched KBs and found this procedure to manually install the agent:
>>>Install-TransportAgent -Name "Connection Filtering Agent" -TransportService FrontEnd -TransportAgentFactory "Microsoft.Exchange.Transport.Agent.ConnectionFiltering.ConnectionFilteringAgentFactory" -AssemblyPath "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\TransportRoles\agents\Hygiene\Microsoft.Exchange.Transport.Agent.Hygiene.dll"
>>>Enable-TransportAgent -TransportService FrontEnd -Identity "Connection Filtering Agent"
But still no joy here:
Identity Enabled Priority
-------- ------- --------
SMSMSERoutingAgent True 1
SMSMSESMTPAgent True 2
Transport Rule Agent True 3
Malware Agent False 4
Text Messaging Routing Agent True 5
Text Messaging Delivery Agent True 6
Content Filter Agent True 7
Sender Id Agent True 8
Sender Filter Agent True 9
Recipient Filter Agent True 10
Protocol Analysis Agent True 11
I have installed and enabled blocklists and still no apparent action in the logs. I think the reason is the failure to have Connection Filtering active.
I was hoping one of you Exchange wizards (Simon ?) could help out. Thank you.
