Exchange 2013 CU5 : Régression fonctionnelle

Posted by Teruin laurent sur septembre 24, 2014


La venue de Microsoft Exchange 2013 si elle apporte des fonctionnalités nouvelles ne supporte plus certaines fonctionnalités historiques. C’est le cas de la possibilité de mettre en place deux sites Web OWA et ECP qui permettent dans la plupart des architectures, de publier de façon différentes les services Web Utilisateurs selon qu’ils soient accédés de l’extérieur ou de l’intérieur.

La plus regrettable est que l’absence de cette fonctionnalité sur la nouvelle version ne semble pas, selon l’éditeur être documentée. On est donc en droit de s’inquiéter de la façon dont Microsoft compte à l’avenir communiquer ou pas la suppression de certaines fonctions historiques. Le fait de ne pas reconduire certaines fonctionnalités est tout à fait justifiable mais le fait de ne pas le documenter constitue une première depuis plusieurs années. Ce comportement, au mieux cette omission, va par conséquent impliquer un accueil suspicieux des prochaines versions nous obligeant à revalider les fonctions de bases pour vérifier quelle sont toujours d’actualité.

Cordialement

Exchange 2013 : CU 5 Error installation : Web Management Service ask for an unknow certificat [Solved]

Posted by Teruin laurent sur septembre 11, 2014


 

Error:

The following error was generated when « $error.Clear();
$keyPath = « HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\WebManagement\Server »;
if (!(Get-Item $keyPath -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue)) {New-Item $keyPath -Force}
Set-ItemProperty -path $keyPath -name « EnableRemoteManagement » -value 0x1 -Type DWORD -Force;
if (Get-Service WMSVC* | ?{$_.Name -eq ‘WMSVC’}) {Set-Service WMSVC -StartupType AutomaticStop-SetupService -ServiceName WMSVC ;Start-SetupService -ServiceName WMSVC}
 » was run: « Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServiceDidNotReachStatusException: Service ‘WMSVC’ failed to reach status ‘Running’ on this server at Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.Task.ThrowError(Exception exception, ErrorCategory errorCategory, Object target, String helpUrl) at Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.Task.WriteError(Exception exception, ErrorCategory category, Object target) at Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Tasks.ManageSetupService.WaitForServiceStatus(ServiceController serviceController, ServiceControllerStatus status, Unlimited`1 maximumWaitTime, Boolean ignoreFailures, Boolean sendWatsonReportForHungService) at Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Tasks.ManageSetupService.StartService(ServiceController serviceController, Boolean ignoreServiceStartTimeout, Boolean failIfServiceNotInstalled, Unlimited`1 maximumWaitTime, String[] serviceParameters) at Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Tasks.ManageSetupService.StartService(String serviceName, Boolean ignoreServiceStartTimeout, Boolean failIfServiceNotInstalled, Unlimited`1 maximumWaitTime, String[] serviceParameters) at Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Tasks.StartSetupService.InternalProcessRecord() at Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.Task.<ProcessRecord>b__b() at Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.Task.InvokeRetryableFunc(String funcName, Action func, Boolean terminatePipelineIfFailed) ».

After searching i disicover that the Web Management Service could not start

PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-Service WMSVC* | ?{$_.Name -eq ‘WMSVC’}
Status Name DisplayName
—— —- ———–
Stopped WMSVC Web Management Service

And the error is the following

Process:WMSvc

User=NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE

<Event xmlns= »http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event »&gt;

Unable to read the certificate with thumbprint ‘31477a6e41f9ae4f8324154a3c9ac82b8feac1a8’. Please make sure the SSL certificate exists and that is correctly configured in the Management Service page.
Process:WMSvc
User=NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE</Data>

I ve checked all certificats in this server no service are binded to this expected certificate with the thumbprint : 1477a6e41f9ae4f8324154a3c9ac82b8feac1a8′

I add a certificat in the Management Service and the service start. The CU5 installer could continue. 😉

Exchange 2013: Microsoft Connectivity analyzer : weird!

Posted by Teruin laurent sur avril 30, 2014


HI All

Today i would like to be certain that my new exchange 2013 infrastructure is well configured. So I started deep checks on all services. From outside I started a new outlook 2013 client, validate the correct auto configuration of Outlook RpcOverHttps. (Outlook Anywhere). Checked the Webservices, the OOF, the Oab the synchronization process etc.. Etc..

All works well. So because I would like to be sure a 100% I used the Microsoft Connectivity Analyzers and with the same account I’ve got this result. Grrr. Could I have a bad result when all functionality are working perfectly? I prefer that than the contrary. ;-). I tried with my corporate hybrid 0365 account. Another issue! but all works fine with outlook with this account too!

 

Well to be certain I used a pure O365 account and the result is ….. LOL ! . Well conclusion: how can I trust this tools!

Outlook 2013: OOF no traffic from External (through Kemp) [SOLVED]

Posted by Teruin laurent sur avril 24, 2014


HI all

This morning i have to cope with a strange Behavior With outlook 2013. From outside Outlook refuse to connect to OOF Web services.

Well the A record exist the port is listening but the weird behavior is that outlook don’t try to connect to OOF. I use Wireshark to capture all the frames and I can’t see any tentative from my workstation to address the expected public address of the published Webservices. I can see the traffic of RpcOverHttp but absolutely no oof traffic which is published on another IP Address.


The Outlook reaction is very fast to display that OOF is not accessible… Weird. I don’t think for the moment that it is a web services configuration problem.

I try to use another profile to another account (Office 365) and OOF Works.

I have supposed that Outlook 2013 verify when he start if he can access to EWS.

Well after searching and searching I find a tools who records all URL accessed by your workstation. (Proximotron) by using it and indicate in the IE the proxy as localhost 8080. I was able to see what Url is accessed by the Outlook. And in my big surprise. The outlook use from external the internal URL address of Webservices. Intexweb.xxx.aero should be extexweb.xxx.aero.


Don’t ask me why. When I check the autoconfiguration option with Outlook client the result are these one which is not correct.


But when I ask to the Ews configuration internally I can see that the configuration is correct


I decided to change the internal value of these InternalUrl and set the same as external and yes it works.

So Kemp is not in fault. The real question is why the internal urls is used instead of external while using HTTP connection !!

Laurent Teruin
