Verse Of The Day:
But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” — Matthew 1:20-21 (NIV)

PostHeaderIcon Exchange – EventID 2002

We started getting reports that some people were not getting their email on their mobile devices.  I did some checking and this appeared only effect mailboxes that were in databases on a specific server.  While troubleshooting this problem I saw some event id 2002 messages that read:

“[Eas] The number of outstanding proxy requests for mailbox server <server name> has exceeded the max limit 5000.  Current request will be rejected.”

PostHeaderIcon Export/Import Printer Preferences

At work we have a department that has about 40 printer objects installed.  These objects all have different printer preferences set.  When a new user logs into the PC those settings don’t carry over.  So you have to touch each printer and set the preferences again.  After doing some searching we found out where those settings are saved in the Registry.  So we exported the following keys and saved them in a .reg file.

PostHeaderIcon Windows Server 2016 – Automatic Startup Repair Loop After Updates

So I’m not completely sure this problem is related to Windows Server 2016 and Microsoft Updates or if it is still a hardware problem.  However, I’ve been running Windows Server 2016 on a computer for several months and have been happy with.  I don’t do a lot with this PC.  It’s main role is just to store files rather than keeping everything on one computer.  Anyway, it had been a bit since I applied updates so I was doing that yesterday and everything seemed normal.  The updates were downloaded, installed, and I was asked to reboot.  That is when the problem started.  The computer would only boot into the Automatic Repair options.  I could not get it to boot to the OS.  I was a little concerned about that data, but figured it should be safe since it is stored on two additional drives in the computer.  However, I still wanted to get the computer back up and running.

PostHeaderIcon Password Reset using OWA

We require our users to change their password periodically like most organizations.  I’m also sure like other organizations, our users typically ignore the warnings when logging in until they are no longer able to login.  As an added awareness, we have scripts that run daily and send emails to users who’s passwords are getting ready to expire.  That email contains the steps to use OWA to reset their passwords in the event someone is out of the office when this process begins.  However, we still had staff that waited until their passwords expired and then they had to call in to get it reset.

PostHeaderIcon SQL SPNs and Authentication

Our SQL DBA was in the process of setting up a new SQL server and was having problem authenticating using his domain account.  He was able to login using the SA account though.  Everything he saw was pointing towards it being a problem with the SPNs for the new server.  We looked at the other 3 servers we had and noticed that there were two extra SPN entries for the new server.  We used the following commands to remove the SPN entries and then AD authentication worked.

PostHeaderIcon Windows 7 – Checking for updates hangs

It is rare that I install Windows 7 any more, but I had to do that today.  I started with a clean install of Windows 7 SP1.  When I got to the point I wanted to install Windows updates I started it and let it run.  It hung at the “Checking for Updates” screen.  Apparently, there are two updates you can install to help speed up the process.

For x86:

PostHeaderIcon Domain Account Lock Out

We had an instance where a user changed positions and because of that change his group membership changed.  When his group membership changed he started getting messages about his account being locked out when trying to logon to the system.  We would unlock his account, but within a few minutes it would lock again.  We searched the Event Logs on our Domain Controllers and were able to identify the computer that was causing problems.  If the computer was turned off he didn’t have this problem, but as soon as the computer was turned on the account would start locking.

PostHeaderIcon Exchange 2013 OWA – Blank Calendar

So I did some updates on our Exchange 2013 servers last week, and then started getting some complaints that people couldn’t see there calendar when the logged into OWA.  Once you logged into OWA and clicked the Calendar, it would load a blank calendar and not have any appointments showing (you also couldn’t see the calendar list on the left side).  If you tried to create a new appointment you ended up with just a grey box.

PostHeaderIcon Exchange 2013 ECP login – 500 error

We have an Exchange admin that when he attempted to login to ECP he would get a 500 error. The simple solution was to add a mailbox to his domain admin account. Once that was done he was able to login to ECP just fine.

From reading the article belew, this might be an indication of a problem with the SystemMailbox as well.
