Exchange “How do I?” videos

It has been a while since we mentioned the Exchange video series we have been creating. Seeing that we have been recording new ones over past months, I wanted to remind you of those as they can be an excellent resource to help you learn how to do something in Exchange. The general “How do I?” videos page can be found here. In order to be notified of new videos that we create and post, you should subscribe to the video RSS feed here. Here are some more recent additions to the video series: Exchange Online Screencast Part 1 -... [Lire la suite]

Parent memory reserve with dynamic memory

Most people I know who have spent a lot of time with Hyper-V have had the experience of accidentally taking too much memory away from the parent partition.  This happens when they start too many virtual machines – and all of a sudden the performance and responsiveness of the parent partition goes down significantly. The response from people who hit this is usually to stop the last virtual machine that they started, to reduce its memory, and then start it up again. This solution has worked in the past – but is no longer an... [Lire la suite]

More Database Availability Group Options Exposed In Exchange 2010 SP1 Console…

In 2010 SP1 RTM, nothing has been changed in the DAG options that has been exposed in the console compared to SP1 Beta. Exchange Team has exposed more options related to Database Availability Group (DAG) in 2010 SP1 RTM Console compared to 2010 RTM. In the RTM version of Exchange 2010, IP address for a DAG has to be set manually using the shell and this was one of the option many exchange admins (who are not comfortable with the shell) wanted to see in the console. Guess what? More options, including setting a static IP address... [Lire la suite]

Exchange Address Book Service Doesn't Work After Upgrading To 2010 SP1…

If you were using static RPC ports for Address Book service in 2010 RTM, you will notice that you can't connect to the address book after the SP1 upgrade. The issue is that the 2010 RTM way of assigning a static port for address book service has been changed in 2010 SP1. In 2010 RTM, the static port was assigned by editing the microsoft.exchange.addressbook.service.exe.config file in the Bin directory. In SP1 RTM, Exchange Product Group has moved this option to the registry, in line with assigning a static port for the RPC Client... [Lire la suite]

Guest Paging vs. Virtualization Paging and Negative Memory Availability

Jeff has discussed this at some length over on the virtualization team blog, but as a general rule of thumb we believe that it is much better to have paging occur inside the guest operating system rather than at the virtualization layer (if paging is needed). The simple reason for this is that the guest operating system has far better understanding of which are the best sections of memory to page out – where as all the virtualization layer can do is to guess at what should be paged out. In my recent demonstrations of dynamic... [Lire la suite]

Exchange 2010 SP1 Setup Error – MSExchange Transport Failed To Reach Status “Running” On This Server

Most exchange admins should be familiar with this error message by now. I ran a clean install of Exchange 2010 SP1 RTM, only to find this error message. MSExchange Transport failed to reach status “running” on this server. The cause is the same, as in previous versions. Check my previous article for more info. This happens when IPv6 is unchecked in the TCP/IP properties of the NIC, but not disabled fully in registry. This issue was fixed in the previous version rollups, but is now back with 2010 SP1 RTM. I checked IPv6... [Lire la suite]

Support de la réplication du profil de l’utilisateur

Depuis Windows 95, on disposait des profils errants. Avec l’arrivée de la virtialisation de présentation (Terminal Server / Citrix), on a  réutilisé ces même profils errants, tout comme pour le VDI. Avec l’arrivée de ces nouvelles infrastructures, le stockage des profils errants en un point unique est considéré comme un SPOF (Single point of Failure). La consolidation des infrastructures pose le problème de la disponibilité des profils errants. Tout de suite, le première réflexe, c’est DFS-N et DFS-R. La... [Lire la suite]
