Windows 8.1 Outlook 2013 MRXSMB 50, again


I had recently had this issue and fixed on one file server but now I am seeing the same issue on another. I have switched my group policy drive maps to Update rather than replace.

I have multiple users running Windows 8.1 and Outlook 2013 32bit.  We use cached-exchange mode and each user has a series of PST files stored on a network share.

I am seeing a number of mrxsmb 50 warnings in the event logs, and the end user's Outlook crashes when these events happen.

This is strictly an issue with Outlook 2013 and Windows 8.1,  Clients using Windows 7 and Outlook 2013 are fine, as well as clients running Windows 8.1 with Outlook 2007.

This is not supported, should not be done and leads to damage (as you have here).

I use Outlook 2013 on my Windows 8.1 Pro machine, keep my files local, and have zero issues for the 2.5 years I have had Windows 8 and Office 2013.

I realize that PST are not recommended to be on a network share, however realistically I would say 99% of people store them there.  The issue is specific to Windows 8.1 clients with Outlook 2013.  Like I said previously the issue doesn't occur when you use Outlook 2007.

realistically I would say 99% of people store them there <-- None of my clients do this. One did, but no more. I have had issues with most versions of Outlook from 2007 back and they do not store PST files on the network any more.

So as long as you continue the practice, there is not much you can do about the errors and damage.
