Exchange 2013: Auto Reseed
Overview Auto reseed is a fascinating subject, introduced for the very first time in Exchange 2013 it meets a need that existed throughout legacy versions. Throughout the previous exchange versions if a disk hosting a mailbox database were to go offline it would mean that the database copy hosted on that disk would be unavailable to exchange as well. In Exchange 2010 that would have meant one copy to be impacted, with the new storage recommendations of hosting multiple copies per volume the impact ......

Exchange 2013 CU6 Issue
There’s an issue with CU6 for Exchange 2013 in coexistence mode with exchange 2007. Quite specifically if you have it installed you might experience unexpected database failovers if you have a delegate on 2007 attempting to open a 2013 mailbox. The issue is known and an interim update should be getting released soon. The current work around is to disable MAPI access to the Exchange 2013 server and use OWA until the update is available. Update 9/9/2014: A fix is available from Microsoft: http://support.microsoft.co... ......

Recovery storage groups
As you might, or not, be aware off there is no item level based recovery in Exchange that is natively supported by Microsoft. So to perform recoveries we need the recovery storage group (captain obvious). The purpose of this is to mount the database you want to recover from on the Exchange server and use exmerge to merge the data you are recovering into the active database. An RSG will not be accessible to users and you can only create one at a time. Exchange 2003: 1. Open Exchange system manager ......

The information store service is stopped and will not start
Troubleshooting the information store service can be straightforward yet immensely complicated if you don’t know what is going on. For this reason I think it is important to know that there are 3 likely culprits that will cause your information store service to go down and refuse to come up: · Database problems · Active directory problems · Antivirus software Trying to work out which is the culprit can be hard, elimination is probably the easiest way to work through this… So let us get started! 1. ......

Troubleshooting incoming mail flow (or the lack thereof)
Usually you’ll get alerted to this issue with a call saying that users have not gotten any new email for a while. They will still be connected to Exchange in outlook, you can still log on to the OWA and, when looking at your hub servers, you can see that the all services are up and running (Note that it is possible the transport service could be stopped…). A number of reasons can exist as to why you are not getting any mail flow: · Your recipient polies are not configured correctly · The receive ......

Powershell: Install Exchange

Another exchange related function (who could guess!) I recently finished is this one. It will download the exchange setup file and install the role you require to be installed. You have to provide the role you want to install, the exchange version and the organization name. Works for 2010 and 2013. Might update this in the future to include RU installations.
