Når opdateringspakke (update rollup) 1,2 eller 3 er installeret på Exchange 2010 Server og du mødes af blank OWA side ved at browse til OWA-indgangsiden (ex. https://remote.domain.dk/owa) er denne løsning en der har virket for os – op til flere gange.

Du mødes af en URL ala denne:
https://remote.domain.dk/owa/auth/logon.aspx?url=https://remote.domain.dk/owa/&reason=0

Scriptet updatecas.ps1 vil håndtere OWA og ECP opdateringerne. Filen, som ligger under “C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Bin” skal afvikles på din Exchange 2010 server.

Kør “updatecas.ps1” i Exchange Management Shell.
Updatecas scriptet følger med opdateringspakkerne (update rollup)

Giv os et like, hvis du fandt løsningen brugbar.

Det er set nogle gange, at Windows Small Business Server 2003 pludseligt går i "krampe" og ikke vil logge ind m.v.
I den forbindelse er opstået en fejl med meddelelsen om at Windows skal aktiveres. Og det på servere som har kørt i årevis.

Der er dem som mener det opstår i forb. med SBS 2003 Transition Pack:

MS had suggested two options. 

First, they suggested renaming two files to get them out of the way. The only way
to do this was through the safe mode command prompt:

C:WINDOWSsystem32wpa.dbl
C:WINDOWSsystem32wpa.bak

This had the effect of changing the error message to a more generic WPA problem,
but the issue remained. 

Secondly, they suggested emptying the following registry key, by setting it to '0'.
 (we could still conect to the remote registry while the machine was on):

HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWPAEventsLastWPAEventLogged

This didn't change anything.

More out of desperation than inspiration. I went back to the command prompt, removed
those files again and immedaitely rebooted from the CD and ran a repair install from
it. 

2 hours later, I logged in and got the same error message again, but this time clicking
'yes' took me to the activation page. (Thankfully the network drivers were still
working). Then all that was left was downloading and re-applying 50-odd patches before
dragging myself home a shade before midnight.

Objective

There are several reasons why you might want to move the data folders for the Microsoft® Windows® Small Business Server 2003 operating system. These folders include: Users Shared Folders, the Windows SharePoint® Services and Monitoring databases, Exchange databases and log files, Sent Faxes folder, and ClientApps shared folder

Then go into Task Manager, click on the Processes tab [click on view/select columns options to make sure the PID [process identifier] option is selected and look for the different process IDs to see which process ID is using the memory.

PID is 672 in the one tracks to MSSQL$SBSMONITORING in the other.

osql -E -S YOURSERVERNAMEsbsmonitoring  [hit enter]

[you’ll now enter like a command screen]

sp_configure ‘show advanced options’,1 [hit enter]

reconfigure with override  [hit enter]]

go  [hit enter]

sp_configure ‘max server memory’, ### [enter the value of the max… I’m trying 70 … I just guessed at this from the poster in the newsgroup]  [hit enter]

Herefter skulle der gerne stå:

administrator.

Run the RECONFIGURE statement to install.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this problem, configure Windows Time to use client mode when it synchronizes with the time server. To do this, follow these steps:1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
2. At the command prompt, type the following commands in the order that they are given. After you type each command, press ENTER.

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:dk.pool.ntp.org,0x8 /syncfromflags:MANUAL

• net stop w32time
• net start w32time
• w32tm /resync

NTP servere:

pool.ntp.org
dk.pool.ntp.org
ntp.sektornet.dk
ntp.inet.tele.dk

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:”0.dk.pool.ntp.org 1.dk.pool.ntp.org 2.dk.pool.ntp.org” /syncfromflags:manual
w32tm /resync /nowait /rediscover

Sikre dig efterfølgende at nedesntående reg nøgler er oprettet:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesW32TimeParametersNtpServer=0.dk.pool.ntp.org 1.dk.pool.ntp.org 2.dk.pool.ntp.org

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesW32TimeParametersType = NTP

Kør net stop w32time + net start w32time. Tjek eventloggen og se at den
laver time-sync uden fejl
