Announcing Cumulative Update 8 for Exchange Server 2013

The Exchange team is announcing today the availability of Cumulative Update 8 for Exchange Server 2013. The Cumulative Update Package and UM Language Packs are now available on the Microsoft Download Center. Cumulative Update 8 represents the continuation of our Exchange Server 2013 servicing and builds upon Exchange Server 2013 Cumulative Update 7. The release includes fixes for customer reported issues, minor product enhancements and previously released security bulletins. A complete list of customer reported issues resolved can be found in Knowledge Base Article KB3030080. Customers running any previous release of Exchange Server 2013 can move directly to Cumulative Update 8 today. Customers deploying Exchange Server 2013 for the first time may skip previous releases and start their deployment with Cumulative Update 8 directly.

We would like to call your attention to a few items in particular about the Cumulative Update 8 release:

  • Calendar and Contact Modern Public Folders are now supported in OWA
  • Batch Migration of Public Folders to 2013 improves migration throughput and PF migration experience
  • Smoother migration for EAS clients to O365 with automatic profile redirect upon successful Hybrid migration to O365 (EAS client must support HTTP 451 redirect)

For the latest information and product announcements please read What’s New in Exchange Server 2013, Release Notes and product documentation available on TechNet.

Cumulative Update 8 includes Exchange related updates to Active Directory schema and configuration. For information on extending schema and configuring the active directory please review the appropriate TechNet documentation. Also, to prevent installation issues you should ensure that the Windows PowerShell Script Execution Policy is set to “Unrestricted” on the server being upgraded or installed. To verify the policy settings, run the Get-ExecutionPolicy cmdlet from PowerShell on the machine being upgraded. If the policies are NOT set to Unrestricted you should use the resolution steps in KB981474 to adjust the settings.

Reminder: Customers in hybrid deployments where Exchange is deployed on-premises and in the cloud, or who are using Exchange Online Archiving (EOA) with their on-premises Exchange deployment are required to deploy the most current (e.g., CU8) or the prior (e.g., CU7) Cumulative Update release.

Wilt u meer controle hebben over de verzonden Items bij het gebruik van een shared mailbox?

Het Exchange Team heeft net een artikel uitgebracht waarin uitgelegd wordt hoe dit werkt.

In Exchange 2010 was dit aan te passen, maar in Exchange 2013 niet meer.

Met de komst van Exchange 2013 CU9 zal deze optie beschikbaar worden.
Helaas moeten we nog even geduld hebben.

Exchange Server 2010 SP3 Update Rollup 8 Recalled

Update 12/10/2014:

An issue has been identified in the Exchange Server 2010 SP3 Update Rollup 8. The update has been recalled and is no longer available on the download center pending a new RU8 release. Customers should not proceed with deployments of this update until the new RU8 version is made available. Customers who have already started deployment of RU8 should rollback this update.

The issue impacts the ability of Outlook to connect to Exchange, thus we are taking the action to recall the RU8 to resolve this problem. We will deliver a revised RU8 package as soon as the issue can be isolated, corrected, and validated. We will publish further updates to this blog post regarding RU8.

This issue only impacts the Exchange Server 2010 SP3 RU8 update, the other updates remain valid and customers can continue with deployment of these packages.

On-Premises Legacy Public Folder Coexistence for Exchange 2013 Cumulative Update 7 and Beyond

Dit artikel is net uitgebracht door het Exchange team

What are we talking about today?

In Exchange 2013 CU5 (yes 5, V, cinco, fem, and cinque) we started implementing changes to how Legacy Public Folder endpoint discovery will be performed by Outlook (for Windows) in the future. This work continues behind the scenes and will be completed with the release of Cumulative Update 7. This becomes important in on-premises Exchange coexistence environments where some or all of your on-premises user mailboxes have been moved to Exchange 2013 and your Public Folder infrastructure is still on Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010. Anyone whom has gone through the Legacy Public Folder hybrid configuration steps for Exchange Online will recognize what we are about to go through for the on-premises edition of Exchange 2013.

Why should I care about this?

Prior to CU7, Exchange 2013 mailboxes using the Outlook client were proxied to the legacy mailbox server hosting the Public Folder being accessed either via RPC/TCP or RPC/HTTP depending on the client’s location, the connectivity model being used, and the configuration on the legacy Exchange servers.

With the introduction of MAPI/HTTP in Exchange 2013 SP1, we identified an issue where clients could not always access the legacy Public Folder environment after moving to the MAPI/HTTP protocol.

An analysis of this behavior led us to understand that a combination of RPC Client Access code and older code within the Outlook client enabled the client to be redirected to the legacy Public Folder store under certain circumstances. While you may be thinking this is great news, it is not the desired state – both Exchange and Outlook need to utilize a common pathway for directing clients to connect to mailbox and Public Folder data. That common pathway is Autodiscover.

In the future, both Exchange and Outlook will remove the old code that enabled the older redirection logic. As a result new configuration steps exist which customers should undertake to coexist with legacy Public Folders and support connectivity with Outlook (for Windows) clients whose mailboxes reside on Exchange 2013, regardless of the connectivity protocol (RPC/HTTP or MAPI/HTTP) in use by their clients.

We are providing you with this information in advance of CU7’s release (No, we’re not going to answer when it will be released other than ‘when it is ready.’J) so you may prepare your environments for the new legacy public folder coexistence method. All of the commands discussed here were available starting in CU5 so you may configure your environment in advance of deploying CU7 if you would like to.
