Failed to prepare guest for hot backup. Error: RPC function call failed. Function name: ISsnapshot in progress) Target machine x.x.x.x. RPC error, The RPC server is unavailable. Code 1722. Error: RPC function call failed. Function name: (ISSnapshotinprogress). Target machine x.x.x.x. RPC error. The ROC server is unavaialble. Code 1722

I ran vssadmin list writers, none of the writers are in an error state.

Another expert has recommended that the VSS may be broke - can anyone help to troubleshoot this issue?

I took a snapshot with quiesce checked and memory unchecked.

It failed to take the snap shot and returned with the following error:

An error occurred while saving the snapshot. msg.snaps.hot.error - quiesce-rror - view error.

We have currently decommissioning our legacy Exchange 2010 environment.  We have two mailbox servers in a DAG  which both old mailbox databases that have public folders.  I am not sure if the public folders are in use so I want to move one of the defaults over to the other DAG server.   I ran the move replica PS command but I don't see the public folder mailbox database moving so I wanted to know is there a better process to migrate this public folder database to another server.

We have a 2016 RDS terminal server environment. We set Outlook to work for all users off of cached Exchange mode, but no we can see that some users are missing unread emails that are older than a week. To explain it another way, whenever the click on their Unread view they are only seeing emails from the current week and not past weeks. If they then search for a user under Unread they see all the unread emails from that user.

Do you know what could be causing this?

Do the latest iphones i.e. iphone 8 still sync up with an exchange server 2016 using a self signed certificate

I am having trouble every time I try to create an account, I keep receiving the message "cannot verify server identity" and it seems that the continue tab is missing and I cannot go any further than this

I have googled this and it seems that Apple have tightened up on their certificate security

I am sure if the customer had a globally trusted certificate there wouldn't be a problem

Was just wondering if anybody could give me a definitive answer on this

Thank you

When implementing Exchange 2016 on-premise, do I need to add anything to my public DNS records?  Say, autodiscover?  If yes, are there other things I need to add?

Hi Experts,

I have to migrate migrate several mailboxes from DOMAIN A to DOMAIN B. Cross-Forest.
The user will stay in DOMAIN A but the mailbox is migrated to DOMAIN B.

We have nearly 200 mailboxes to do.
But in the meantime I have to test this.

How can I test the mail flow ? The MX Record is still showing to DOMAIN A.

Do you have any ideas ?

I configured the mail forwarding hook inside the office 365 admin console to flow to a different mailbox. How can I setup this user when getting the forwarded mail comes over that it can go right into a separate folder?

I am assuming it needs a separate folder and a rule for the targets inbox correct?

I need to create a script that does multiple actions pulling input from a CSV file that contains the Active Directory Account

Here are the things needed to accomplish:

Disable Account - User

Change PWD

End Date User Account

Append Description in AD User account

Move to OU

Remove From Groups

Remove any Meetings that user is Organizer

Removing 0365 licenses from user account



I have bits and pieces of some of the items that need to be done - I just don't know how to tie them all together

Location of csv
C:\scripts\ xxxx.csv

End Date:
#set account expiration date
Import-Csv "c:\scripts\contractors.csv" | foreach {set-adaccountexpiration -identity $_.UserID -datetime $_.EndDate}


Append Description in AD User account
get-aduser XXXXAD -Properties Description | ForEach-Object { Set-ADUser $_ -Description "$($_.Description) Some more stuff" }

Remove From Groups:

Disable Account:
#disable user Disable-ADAccount -Identity $termuser

I'm creating two Hyper-V  VM's.  One for AD and one for Exchange.
The underlying OS is Server 2016 Standard.

I've installed the first VM with Server 2016 in prep for AD first before Exchange.

I have one built in Gigabit Ethernet port and I have installed a Ethernet card that has two ethernet ports.

What I don't know is how to use that 2 port Ethernet card with each having a static ip for the two VM's and how that all plays into the Virtual Switch (if it does?)

I've seen this issue pop up on a second machine, so now I'm just a little puzzled. Is there any known correlation between the HomePage registry key and Office 365? Checked out a W10 machine one time, everything functional, internet connection just fine, only that Microsoft services are inaccessible. Outlook and SfB do not succeed at connecting, and navigating to O365 portal in browser immediately results in connection reset.

Ran malware/security scans and only thing of note was the HomePage registry key. Specifically under: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel. Deleting or modifying this key's value and rebooting sometimes succeeds in restoring the connection, but it's inconsistent. Anyone ever experience this?

I have a group email and need the emails to be deleted automatically between 5pm to 7am. I do not want the emails to be sent to the users within those hours. Any suggestions please.

I am looking to perform a clean up on a user account as a transfer tool also recognised the purges folder (once items have been deleted from the 'Recover Deleted Items Folder').

What is the best way to clean up the ‘Purges’ folder of an Office 365 account without impacting the active mailbox? At the moment, I can see the data is still in there and am unable to wait until Office 365 clears it out.

From what research I have done, I can do it via PowerShell however am not sure on the best method.

Exchange 2013 Standard Server environment with a single server.   Since installing CU23 in November we've had numerous mailboxes quarantined which in turn has dismounted a couple of mailstores randomly and throwing them into a dirty shutdown state.  Luckily the "fix" is to just run a soft repair which commits the logs and the database will mount.

As this has happened in only two of our five databases we have attempted to move mailboxes out of the questionable two into the other three but the migration batches, I have one batch for all the mailboxes in Store1 , that says it took 6 hours to run, status is Completed, but when you look at the mailboxes they're still in the original store.   Another time I tried to move one mailbox from Store1 by doing a migration batch in EAC, it runs for about a minute then completes.  It says 'Completed', Total 0 Synced 0 Finalized 0 Failed 0.  

Not sure where to go , i want to get rid of the two poisoned mailboxes but I would need to first export the mail which i can't do if their quarantined and they don't stay out of quarantine for more than ten minutes.

Hi,

I have a daily backup job that has been failing this week. I'm new in the job so want to get this sorted as soon as possible.

The backup job backs up numerous VMs on the estate but the job is failing due an issue backing up the DC and the Exchange servers.

The error log reads:

Exchange servers (both of them with the same error:

Failed to prepare guest for hot backup. Error: RPC function call failed. Function name: ISsnapshot in progress) Target machine x.x.x.x. RPC error, The RPC server is unavailable. Code 1722. Error: RPC function call failed. Function name: (ISSnapshotinprogress). Target machine x.x.x.x. RPC error. The ROC server is unavaialble. Code 1722

DC:

Unable to release guest. Unfreeze error. (backup job failed. Cannot create a shadow copy of the volumes containing writers data. A VSS critical writer has failed. Writer name: NTDS (class id xxxxxxxxxxx) Writer state (VSS_WS_failed_at_post_snapshot. Error code (0X800423F4). Error: unfreeze error (backup job failed. Cannot create a shadow copy of the volumes containing written data. A VSS critical writer has failed. Written name (NTDS) VSS_WS_FAILED_AT_POST_SNAPSHOT_ERROR Code (0X800423F4)

Looking forward to the replies and thanks.

I'll probably have a small domain controller, a sql server and a exchange server (all 2019)

I have about 40 exchange mailboxes - what are the minimum req's for the O/S and the processors?
Will probably have a small AD only domain controller and separate sql server.

Also need to migrate exchange 2010 mailboxes to 2019!

I have an on premise Exchange 2013 environment with 2 servers in a DAG. I am trying to add a third server, but on AWS. I have created the server, the server OS is exactly the same the on premise servers. Both on premise servers can ping the AWS server, both by IP and FQDN. All permissions on the AWS server match the on premise servers.

However, when working in the ECP i continually get this error regarding the AWS server:
An error occurred while accessing the registry on the server "ServerName". The error that occurred is: "The network path was not found. ". Is there a special way that AWS has to be setup so that my on premise Exchange server can "locate" my AWS server?

Any help is much appreciated.

Dear Experts
We are in process of implementing on-premise exchange enterprise server, as our userbase is lesser than 25 we are installing following 1 and 2 roles in same server which is behind the firewall
1.Client Access services -
2.Mailbox services
Now please suggest should we have setup one more windows server in DMZ and install Edge Transport role here.
We have also procured barracuda email security on-site appliance.
Please suggest does the Edge Transport role to be setup in DMZ by retaining above 1 and 2 behind the firewall and in our design barracuda email security appliance exists hence Edge Transport role not required, please help in the design, thanks in advance.

I have a new system installed:
1 single server 2019 with Exchange 2019 and  internal AD "stsgroup.local".

New clients with Exchange 2019.

When I open Outlook to connect to the exchange server, it ask me to enter credentials for a microsoft account, se picture. Why is this happening?

certifikat--1-.png
This is exactly what I do at the client:
1. Start outlook first time
2. Choose "show advanced options" and then "manually options"
3. Choose  "Exchange"
4. Popup about MS-account occurs. Close it with the X.
5. Get an error about something went wrong. Click on retry.
6.  Popup about MS-account occurs for second time . Close it with the X.
7. Wizard finish with message "Account is setup".
8. Outlook asks for password in the lower right hand of the screen.
9. Restart Outlook.
10. Now it works!

I have tried from WIndows 10, as well from a server 2019 (remote desktop) and for several users. Same problem.
So now I am lost. Could it be something wrong with the autodiscover?

I had earlier some problems with the certificate and autodiscover, but that part seem to be solved now:

Thanks in advance.

I had this question after viewing Users getting message, Server Administrator has Limited the Number of Items You Can Open Simultaneously.

One of my clients has several users with the Outllook for O365 client on Windows 10 Pro desktops under an Office365 Business Premium subscription.  For a long time now they've been using a shared calendar to manage their restaurant bookings.  The shared calendar has a recurring event and to make a booking they edit/save the entry for the specific day required.

All was good until last Friday 7 February when they can no longer save the updates.  Now getting message 'Server Administrator has limited the number of items you can open simultaneously. Try closing messages you have opened or removing attachments and images from unsent messages you are composing.'

Can an expert shed any light on this message and perhaps how I can go about finding what the limit is that's being exceeded and from there how to fix?
