Exchange 2007 MP 6.0.6702.0 issues January 16, 2010

Posted by Björn Axéll in MP, SCOM.

When I was at a customer, I run into two issues when configuring the Exchange 2007 MP that I thought I would share with you all:

  • Problem 1
    • If your Exchange has multiple OWA virtual directories, you wont get any data in the synthetic transaction performance views
  • Solution
    • As of now, you need to delete the “extra” virtual directory
  • Problem 2
    • If you are running Exchange 2007 SP2 and configured the “client synthetic transaction” you will get an alerts (see below) and the state of your CAS Synthetic Transaction State(s) will go red.
      • When configured client synthetic transaction for OWA internal and/or External monitoring
        • The test was unable to log on to Outlook Web Access because the SSL certificate did not validate. You can force the cmdlet to proceed by re-running it and specifying the TrustAnySSLCertificate parameter URL
      • When configured client synthetic transaction for Activesync and/or Web Services monitoring
        • [System.Net.WebException]:The underlying connection was closed. Could not establish a trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.Inner error [System.Security.Authentication.AuthenticationException]:
          The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure – Some of the client access server connectivity transactions failed
  • Solution
    • Disable the BPA on CAS servers.
      1.   Click the Authoring button in the Operations console, and then click Rules.
      2.   In the Rules pane, in the Look for box, type Exchange 2007 Test System Health, and then click Find now.
      3.   Right-click the Exchange 2007 Test System Health rule in the list, click Overrides, click Override the rule, and then click For all objects of class: Exchange 2007 Best Practice. A list of override controlled parameters is displayed.
      4.   Select to disable it
