Exchange 2010 SP2 Update Rollup 3

It was release yesterday, and I was hoping that it should include the upcoming hotfix for ActiveSync devices regarding the behavior for redirections.

But it was not included this time, anyway.. Here’s the team blog, download link and description about the update rollup.

Quote from team blog:

Note for Forefront Protection for Exchange users  For those of you running Forefront Protection for Exchange, be sure you perform these important steps from the command line in the Forefront directory before and after this rollup’s installation process. Without these steps, Exchange services for Information Store and Transport will not start after you apply this update. Before installing the update, disable ForeFront by using this command: fscutility /disable. After installing the update, re-enable ForeFront by running fscutility /enable.

Feedback (Quote’s from MS blog):
MSFT have escalated it to the Outlook Product team for further investigation.

“After deleting the „servers“ container in one of the old still existing e2003 admin groups through adsiedit, everything’s fine. Public folder content gets replicated as well as the hierarchy.

Regular emails to public folders get delivered as expected.”
