WTF within a week an update

BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0 Service Pack 3 Maintenance Release 1 for MS Exchange is now available for download.

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/admin/deliverables/26577/BlackBerry_Enterprise_Server_for_Microsoft_Exchange-Maintenance_Release_Notes–1561918-0404053903-001-5.0.3-US.pdf

What’s new
The BlackBerry® Enterprise Trait Tool includes a new trait named ExchangeEnablePropertyPromotion. This trait specifies if and how the BlackBerry Messaging Agent promotes MAPI properties. The possible values are:

  • 0 – disabled
  • 1 – The BlackBerry Messaging Agent promotes MAPI properties on all folder reloads, if required.
  • 2 – The BlackBerry Messaging Agent promotes MAPI properties on all folder reloads, if required, except for the first folder reload. On the first folder reload the BlackBerry Messaging Agent does not promote MAPI properties.

Example: To disable the promotion of MAPI properties for the BlackBerry Domain, type:
traittool -global -trait ExchangeEnablePropertyPromotion -set 0.

Example: To disable the promotion of MAPI properties for a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server instance, type:
traittool -server -trait ExchangeEnablePropertyPromotion -set 0

Fixed issues

  • BlackBerry Administration Service
    If one BlackBerry® Administration Service instance sent a reconciliation task to a second instance, and the connection between the instances dropped before the second instance could notify the first that the reconciliation was complete, reconciliation stopped on all BlackBerry Administration Service instances. The first BlackBerry Administration Service instance then wrote the following error to its log file: “org.jboss.remoting.CannotConnectException: Can not get connection to server. Problem establishing socket connection for InvokerLocator [sslsocket:”. The BlackBerry Administration Service checks for unprocessed reconciliation events every 24 hours and restarts them at that time. For more information, contact RIM Support. (DT 1159175)
  • BlackBerry Messaging Agent
    In some circumstances email messages were not delivered promptly because of high disk I/O on Microsoft® Exchange 2010 mailbox servers. (DT 1141515)

New High Availability Feature Article and Updated Support Guidance for Exchange 2010
A database availability group (DAG), together with mailbox database copies, can provide automatic recovery from a variety of server, storage, network, and other hardware failures. A DAG can also provide a site resilience solution so that you can perform a datacenter switchover in the event of a site-level disaster. But even a comprehensive, intelligent, and robust solution such as a DAG can’t protect you from all possible disasters, including disasters that affect an entire DAG. For example, consider a two-member DAG deployed in a single datacenter. If the datacenter experiences a flood, fire, or other cataclysmic event that destroys the DAG, the entire DAG will need to be rebuilt from scratch.  How do you do that?

How to disable the "Sent by Microsoft Exchange Server 2007" branding sentence in an Exchange Server 2007 DSN message

So Anderson posted this, and my initial thought was huh?  The KB didn’t really explain either, so it was time for a test.

 So the KB will allow you to remove the circled text below:

And it’s a nice simple PowerShell Command:

Set-TransportConfig WritingBrandingInDSNEnabled $false

But you do need to have Exchange 2007 SP1 with RU3

Thursday, June 05, 2008: TechNet Webcast: Going Big! Deploying Large Mailboxes with Exchange Server 2007 Without Breaking the Bank (Level 300)
Are your users complaining that they spend almost as much time cleaning out their 25-megabyte (MB) mailboxes as they do actually processing e-mail? Are you hesitant to increase mailbox sizes because of the challenges around storage and backup/restore costs? Join us in this webcast to learn the value of large mailboxes and how Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 can help you overcome the challenges associated with them.

Thursday, June 19, 2008: Momentum Webcast: Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Mailbox Role Memory Characterization Using HP BladeSystem (Level 200)
When Microsoft set out to design its next-generation Exchange platform, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, one of the major objectives was to tame the I/O demands, which the previous versions placed on the disk storage subsystem. These demands required Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 customers to focus on storage performance and not just on disk capacity. If the storage solution was not capable of providing the disk I/O performance needed, the server would bottleneck, and response times would increase, resulting in unhappy users.
With Exchange Server 2007, Microsoft is able to move to a 64-bit operating system using Windows Server 2003 x64 platforms. This allowed for significant increases in available memory resources for the application, which in turn allowed memory to scale well beyond the four gigabytes available to Exchange Server 2003. Designers could now cache greater portions of the Exchange database(s) in memory. By increasing database cache, larger portions of the user’s mailbox can now be cached, reducing the I/O demands on disk.

In this webcast, we demonstrate the benefits of additional system memory in the HP ProLiant BL480c blade server, and also provide details on other performance considerations when working larger memory configurations.

Tuesday, June 24, 2008: TechNet Webcast: How Microsoft IT uses the Exchange Hosted Services to Protect the Messaging Environment (Level 300)
Microsoft deploys and supports more than 130,000 Exchange Server mailboxes for the global organization. All mail delivered to mailboxes@microsoft.com is first routed through Exchange Hosted Services, a hosted service that filters mail for spam and viruses and enforces corporate e-mail policies “in the cloud” before the mail reaches the Microsoft corporate network. This session describes Microsoft IT deployment, including server configuration and implementation, collecting server evidence, and lessons learned from deployment. Exchange Hosted
Services is a service offering to enterprises that currently serves over 10,000 customers and processes 3.5 billion messages across the EHS global network.
