Recently I had a problem while migrating a customers’  Exchange 2003 to MSX2010. The mailbox migration went well, and so we deleted all mailstorage groups on the Exchange 2003 Backend server.

After this we started to move the public folders on a Exchange 2003 Frontend server and triggered the “Move-All-Repicas” script on the Exchange 2010, too.

Nothing happened – no messages in the event log. After several attempts the customer tested to move the public folders on the original BE server and immediately appeared the error: “Error c1050000 MSexchangeIS – Profile is not configured”. (Thank you, Joerg;-))

After brief research, it turned out that this error occurs if on the public folders’ source server no mailbox storage group is configured.

After re-create a storage group and and information store mailbox replication worked as expected.

Cheers,

You can remove the internal address and hostname using the “header firewall” which removes certain rights for the builtin user “Anonymous Logon”. So we remove the ExtendedRight for “ms-Exch-Send-Headers-Routing” for external SMTP-Connector.

First check the access rights of your external connector:

Get-SendConnector “EXTERNAL-CONNECTOR-NAME” | Get-ADPermission | Where-Object { $_.extendedrights –like “*routing*” | fl user, *rights

Be aware to use the right spelling for your Exchange servers’ language:

English OS:

Remove-ADPermission –id “EXTERNAL-CONNECTOR-NAME” -AccessRight ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights “ms-Exch-Send-Headers-Routing” -user “NT AUTHORITY\Anonymous Logon”

German OS:

Remove-ADPermission –id “EXTERNAL-CONNECTOR-NAME” -AccessRight ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights “ms-Exch-Send-Headers-Routing” -user “NT-AUTORITÄT\Anonymous-Anmeldung”

Change FQDN:

Set-SendConnector -id “EXTERNAL-CONNECOR-NAME” -FQDN:mail.company.com

In some cases you are forced to hard-remove public folders from Exchange. You can use ADSI Edit to delete these folders.

Exchange 2010

Open ADSI-Edit and got to configuration

Navigate to this path:

CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL
CN=Services
CN=Microsoft Exchange
CN=EXCHANGE_ORG
CN=Administrative Groups
CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)
CN=Databases
CN=PUBLIC_FOLDER_DATABASE

Now you can delete the PF-Database you want to get rid off.

Exchange 2007

Open ADSI-Edit and got to configuration

Navigate to this path:

CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL
CN=Services
CN=Microsoft Exchange
CN=EXCHANGE_ORG
CN=Administrative Groups
CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)
CN=Servers
CN=SERVERNAME
CN=InformationStore
CN=STORAGE_GROUP
CN=PUBLIC_FOLDER_DATABASE

Now you can delete the PF-Database you want to get rid off.

Exchange 2003

Open ADSI-Edit and got to configuration

Navigate to this path:

CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL
CN=Services
CN=Microsoft Exchange
CN=EXCHANGE_ORG
CN=Administrative Groups
CN=First administrative Group
CN=Servers
CN=SERVERNAME
CN=InformationStore
CN=STORAGE_GROUP
CN=PUBLIC_FOLDER_DATABASE

Now you can delete the PF-Database you want to get rid off.
