Exchange 2013: 2 smtp;532 5.3.2 STOREDRV.Deliver; Missing or bad StoreDriver MDB properties

You may have got the following error when using CU1 or CU2 with Exchange 2013 when the routing plugin for multi tenancy is being used.

2 smtp;532 5.3.2 STOREDRV.Deliver; Missing or bad StoreDriver MDB properties

Now there are a couple of reasons for this, which are well documented.

The first reason is if you have a mailbox that is hidden from the address book. You need to un-hide the mailbox.

Another issue that will cause this that isn’t well documented is if you are using Email Address policies that check certain things like custom attributes or organizational units (OUs). If the user is sitting in the wrong OU, and the address policy specifies they need to be in another OU, you will get this error.

Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

Exchange 2013 Veeam backup logs are not truncated

We have an Exchange 2013 shared environment split over multiple servers. We have our 2xDAG and 2xCAS.

When running a Veeam backup (Full and Incremental), we noticed that the backup logs were not being truncated.

khdn3kju.nkd1What we found is that the DAG’s must be backed up before the CAS servers. If not, the DAG servers, for whatever reason do not truncate the logs.

Once we changed the order of VMs, we found the logs truncated.

CaptureThe reason I am posting this is that many forum users are saying to install CU1. CU1 has many issues itself, so we didn’t want to do this. This proves CU1 does not need to be installed.

Before anyone installs CU1, please read the blog posts here.
