Has anyone upgraded to Exchange 2016 CU7 yet? If so has their been any issues you may have experienced? I upgraded in my lab and it failed because it couldn't find the grammars folder path. I created the path and the installation succeeded. the other issue I had was even though the send connector was there exchange wouldn't send outbound mail because it no longer detected the connector. I had to recreate the connector and then everything was working correctly. has anyone else experience strange issues with this CU?

Hello, I am currently migrating from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016. I have added some Exchange 2016 mailbox servers to our environment, but have not moved any user mailboxes from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016.

I am trying to figure out the best way to migrate Outlook Web Access. We will be moving mailboxes gradually, so some users will be on Exchange 2010 and some users will be on Exchange 2016.

Does anyone have advice on the best way to migrate Outlook Web Access without causing any issues for both 2010 and 2016 mailboxes? Thanks!
Hello, I am currently migrating from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016. I have added some Exchange 2016 mailbox servers to our environment, but have not moved any user mailboxes from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016.

All of our users use ActiveSync. We will be moving mailboxes gradually, so some users will be on Exchange 2010 and some users will be on Exchange 2016.

Does anyone have advice on the best way to migrate ActiveSync without causing any ActiveSync issues for both 2010 and 2016 mailboxes? Thanks!
In my environment the Hub Transport Exchange Servers are:

1 x Exchange 2010 Hub Transport Server (CAS/HT)
1 x Exchange 2016 Mailbox Server (CAS/HT/MBX)

Both of the above Exchange Servers are listed in the "Source Server" tab of a particular Send Connector.

In an effort to one-day decommission the above Exchange 2010 Server, I remove the Exchange 2010 Server from the "Source Server" tab of the aforementioned Send Connector.

Mail begins to back up in the Exchange 2010 Server's queue - The queue viewer shows the name of the Send Connector from which I just removed the server.

Why is this happening and why is the Exchange 2016 not taking over?
How do i get\view message logs of applications and MFDs that relay emails via exchange online?
Looking for advice on getting basic redundancy in Exchange 2016 using only 2 servers.  Is it possible to replicate all of the roles with just 2 servers.  Active/Active would be nice but manual fail over is fine if we can do it sub 15 minutes.

Thank you

I'm a bit confused by the whole linked mailbox in Exchange 2010.  I had created a usermailbox, which I now need to convert to a linked mailbox, which I have done, but when I try to connect to the mailbox, it says it's unavailable....any thoughts.

Hey Guys,

Yesterday, we migrated mailboxes from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016.  Afterwards, we noticed that we are not receiving incoming emails.  After spending time troubleshooting and looking into other possibilities, I found out from our spam filter that emails are being delivered and sitting in the spam filter queue.  The error I was receiving on all emails were 452 4.3.1 Insufficient System Resources. This error point me to low disk space on C: Drive.  Now I need assistance with moving database to E: partition from C:  I have this one Expert who is helping me.  He asked me to run the following scripts.  

Set-MailboxDatabase "Mailbox Database 1243980483" -Name "DB16"
Move-DatabasePath DB16 -EdbFilePath E:\DB16\DB16.edb -LogFolderPath E:\DB16

I ran the two scrtips above and received the following error:

Failed to connect to target server "           ". Error: WMI exception occurred on server 'xxxxxxxx': Quota
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (DB16:DatabaseIdParameter) [Move-DatabasePath], InvalidOperationException

   27 PM] [FailureCategory=Cmdlet-InvalidOperationException] E753B51,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConfigurationTask
    + PSComputerName        :

The error message above pointed me to create a full backup of the system.  I created a full backup of the system using …
Exchange 2013 has a builtin or default       Exchange Control Panel  (ECP)  portal, configured on Client Access Server (CAS)  
It is required or needed by Exchange admins, but the problem everybody and every subnet is allowed, to use

Is there a way to restrict the access to certain IP Addresses (hosts) or subnets ?

Thank you in advance ...

I had this question after viewing Hybrid Office 365 - how to migrate shared and room mailboxes.

Migrating room and shared mailboxes fails using the 0365 migration wizard
 in the active usera are of the )365 console my room mailboxs show as blocked and whe  I try to migrate, the process fails, powershell migration yeilds this error :

new-MoveRequest –identity cafeteria@xxx.org -Remote -RemoteHostName x.yyy.org
-RemoteCredential $OnPremAdmin -TargetDeliveryDomain yyy.org

You can't use the domain  because it's not an accepted domain for your organization.

I have 20 licenses Exchange Online Plan 1 and I wanted to have advance threat protection for my users but I only bought 10 ATP licenses. In my knowledge we don't need to assign the ATP licenses so the question is how would I know whose 10 users have the ATP licenses?
I am looking for information on peoples experience with gal sync between two exchange servers in different forests. I can google : ) its really feedback from people that have implemented it. Third party tool seems pricey as its charged per mail box.

Need to know how to export all the permissions from onsite exchange 2007 for mailboxes, shared mailboxes, calendars, permissions.
We have an onsite 2007 exchange server and are migrating email to online office 365.
We will be using bititan wizard to export everything else but we need all the permissions that are found in outlook for shared mailboxes, what users have permissions to the mailboxes and what level of permissions.

We have run a couple of simple power shell commands in the onsite exchange management shell but none of them seem to have everything we are looking for.
We want the permissions for all users and any shared mailbox permissions you would find in outlook.
We would like to be able to export the data to a .csv file so we can see all the permissions we will need for the email migration to online exchange.
Hello everybody, I just enrolled myself to this website to learn, share and also meet IT like me.
As I stated, this is my first time in this website but I was wondering if sombody could give me some guidance in exchange server.

Here is my scenario: I have two site A and B
And I want to apply DAG resilience. But my problem is when I install exchange server in my secondary server it tells me I am not part of the certain group which I added.

Let me put it this way, I have a domain controller and an exchange already installed and configured working fine.
Now, In my second site I have added another domain, child domain. The child domain it's being configured no problem I can ping back and forth both server primary and child.

My issue lies when I add a member to my child domain to install exchange.
Basically is telling me the machine hasn't been added to a domain controller which is not true, and it's not belong the enterprise members and whatnot.

Could anyone explain me what exactly is going on and where is my weak point in this scenario.?
Thank you!

Here is what I got

Site A:  
1- Domain Controller
1-Exchange server
1- File-Share Witness
2- Card

Site B:  
1- Domain Controller
1-Exchange server
1- File-Share Witness
2- Card

If you need more information please let me know.

This is something I'm working on myself.

Administrative Comment

Thanks for the feedback Scott
A user who used to be an Office 365 global administrator receives "Identity synchronization Error Report" emails. She continues to receive these emails even though her global administrator role was removed a month ago. Now she is just a standard Office 365 user without any administrator roles.

Also even though I am an Office 365 global administrator I don't receive these email notifications nor do other Office 365 global administrators within our organization.

Where within Office 365 do I need to go to edit who receives these and other Office 365 error message and notification emails?

Office 365 sync errors email
Here's the scenario:

Corporate setting with multiple VLANs and HP MSM720 WAPs that are configured with multiple SSID for those VLANs. Mail is Exchange 365. Everything used to work fine. I'm not exactly sure when the issue started, but the only change to the network which may have happened around the same time is the ISP changed some of their equipment and assigned a new IP.

The problem is that phones (Android or iPhone) that are connected to WiFi -- on any VLAN -- are unable to send email attachments when using the native mail client on the phones. This is not a size issue. Attachment can be 66 bytes, and the message will just sit in the Outbox. (On an Android phone, you get a "Send Failed" message as well. Not sure about iPhone.)

To clarify, if the user tries using a Gmail account and sending via the Gmail app or via the native app, they can send an attachment. If they use their 365 account in the Outlook app, they can send an attachment. The attachments only fail when using 365 through the native mail clients on Android and iPhone.

We also have the issue with scan to email on the multi-function printer. It can send an email with a link to the scanned document, but it can't send the scanned document.

Firmware on the WAPs is up-to-date, and there hand't been any updates until after this issue began. Firewall firmware is up-to-date. Everything has been rebooted.

"Don't use the native mail app" is not a valid solution.

This is a really weird one. Any help …
Outlook 2016 running on Windows 10 computers within my company's domain are having problems performing the initial Outlook Office 365 email setup.

All Windows 10 computers are using DHCP and are assigned the following DNS addresses through DHCP: (the DNS server address for a Server 2016 domain controller with the DNS server role)

So what I've been doing to fix this issue is temporarily assigning these computers the following static DNS server addresses:

This allows Outlook to connect to the Office 365 email servers and auto configure the user's Office 365 email accounts. Then once the Outlook email profile is configured I change these DNS server addresses back to using DHCP.

What DNS entries can I add to the Server 2016 DNS server so that the Windows 10 client computers will be able to connect to the Office 365 servers and perform the email auto configuration?

Please let me know if any further information is needed.

We currently have two Exchange 2013 servers on premise with most mailboxes located in Office 365 cloud. We currently have one of the on premise Exchange servers configured as a Hybrid and one not. This is working fine but we want to have a better DR / High Availability options. One ides is to have both on premise exchange server set up as hybrid.
Not sure if this is possible.

Does anyone know if it is possible to have two on premise exchange server set up and active (or even one in stand by mode) as Hybrid servers for one Office 365 client? If so, can you provide reference documentation?

Thank you
I just learned Symantec is EOL touchdown app.  Looking for alternative.  

Currently sync to Exchange 2007, but moving to 365 soon.

Seeing recommendations for Outlook for Android, Nine etc.  Can anyone tell me a good alternative based on some features I'm concerned about, hopefully save some research time.

Rules:  I have rules in touchdown for different alerts based on things such as When arrives in subfolder, this is a deal breaker.  I need different alerts for subfolders and other criteria and the main inbox etc no alerts.
Contacts sync:  sync multiple contact lists, contact list subfolders, sync to native android contacts
Email Folder/subfolder sync selection (specify which folders to sync)
Peak hours, turn off push in non peak times
Calendars (multiple calendar folders), alerts
Tasks (multiple task folders), alerts
Public folders would be nice, but not a deal breaker.

I have a Exchange 2010 running on a Win 2008 R2 server that I cannot login to.  I inherited this from the previous person in my role and want to migrate everything over, but cannot get onto the box to administer it.  Most things I can do remotely, but SSL certificates is the main issue I have, I cannot manage them or IIS remotely.

So back to the issue, the server boots and exchange everything works great.  As soon as I login (with a domain or local admin) the server crashes on the Welcome/login screen.

I've tried quite a few things and reviewed the event logs (includes nothing I believe to be related).  The only thing that seems to work is safe mode and I can't do much in there whilst it's in safe mode.

I'd settle for remote IIS management, but it seems you have to logon to enable that :(

If anyone has any idea's, I'd appreciate it.  

Thanks in advance.

in the Exchange queue find the message and don't send it.
the dns nslookup on the srvmail respond with the error unknow.
on the server dns respond wth the correct name
Can I still use Outlook 2007 to connect to Exchange 2016 although it is not a supported list in Microsoft ?

As we have a lot of client still using Office 2007,  it would be great if there is some work around way to gradually replace the Office while we deploy the Exchange 2016.

I get an issue with my Exchange 2013 server when logging into mailbox using OWA.
The username and password are both correct, however ther server won’t let me enter the Login page unless I tried wrong password and retry again with the correct one.
Are there anyone facing the same problem, and any solution for that?
