If you have setup an Office Online Server 2016 with Exchange Server 2016 CU2, and if you are getting this error then there is something wrong with the configuration. It does not mean that your installation was wrong but during the configuration of Office WebApp Farm you forgotten to mention the Edit Option. So re-run the command with the Editing Enable and you will be done.
Product covered – Office Online Server 2016 and Exchange 2016 CU2
Summary/Goal – Achieve document editing using a web browser without having desktop version of MS Office 2016
Like Office 365 document editing, you can also setup your infrastructure for the on-prem document editing . The end-user does not require desktop version of Microsoft Office.
In this lab, I’m using a 3rd party ssl certificate and all the domain name are FQDN.
Exchange URLS https://mail.office365sme.com, auto discover.office365sme.com
OOS Server URL https://oos.office365sme.com
Friendly Certificate name The Office 365 SME
Now setup your OfficeWebApp Farm as below – As mentioned above I’m using the same url. These are my lab urls–
It FAILED, because the certificate name was type incorrectly. I ran the same cmdlet agains with the correct Certificate Name ‘The Office 365 SME’
Setting up Exchange 2016 Server to integrate with Office Online Server 2016
Verifying the above integration –
Viewing / Editing the Document Online via browser on your On-Prem Exchange 2016
Now your on-prem Exchange 2016 offers you the same feature (one of them) as Office 365.
You may get this error if you are installing Office Online Server 2016 on Windows 2012 R2 Data center.
There are two ways to fix it, either install the below KB or do the full server update if you are setting up a new server , like in this example.
Now you are good to go with the installation of OOS 16.
Exchange 2016 CU2 and Exchange 2013 CU13 now supports .NET Framework 4.6.1
Today Microsoft Exchange Team made announcement of not one but two cumulative updates, one for Exchange 2013 which is Cumulative update 13 and Cumulative CU2 for Exchange 2016. With these CU updates .NET 4.6.1 is officially supported now.
I’d like to start with Hybrid Deployment first
Minimum CU For Hybrid environments
So if you are and Exchange 2013 or Exchange 2016 or mix of both then you have no choice EXCEPT upgrade to either CU12 minimum (.NET 4.6.1 is not supported on CU12) or CU1 at minimum (.NET 4.6.1 is not supported on CU1) respectively. So if you on hybrid and want to be at the upgrade to .NET 4.6.1 then you have to be on the latest CU Levels.
How to proceed?
Do not install .NET 4.6.1 directly on your existing CU, first you need to upgrade to CU13 for Exchange 2013 and CU2 for Exchange 2016, this is the recommendation as per #msexchange team.
- Exchange Server 2016 Cumulative Update 2 (KB3135742), Download, UM Lang Packs
- Exchange Server 2013 Cumulative Update 13 (KB3135743), Download, UM Lang Packs
- Exchange Server 2016 Cumulative Update 2 does include updates to Active Directory Schema
Post CU installation
- Windows Server 2008/2008R2 – KB3146716
- Windows Server 2012 – KB3146714
- Windows Server 2012R2 – KB3146715
(these three KB article solves the same issue of course you need separate hot fix for all the OS)
Migration to Modern Public Folder Resolved
The issue reported in KB3161916 has been resolved.
To prevent any installation issue –
make sure that Windows PowerShell Script Execution Policy is set to “Unrestricted” on the server being upgraded to.
SHA-2 Support for Self-Signed Certificates
The New-ExchangeCertificate cmdlet has been updated to produce a SHA-2 certificate for all self-signed certificates created by Exchange. Customers may opt to replace existing non-SHA2 certificates generated by previous releases as they see fit.
Support for Exchange 2010 ???
Exchange 2010 is still not support and will never be as per Jeff Guillet – http://www.expta.com/2016/06/exchange-2016-cu2-and-exchange-2013.html (read his own comment at the bottom of this post)

In my last post I’ve talked about installing the 3rd party Add-ins in Outlook for Office 365. As I said there are many Add-ins from embedding google search into Word, printing email as a PDF etc. I’m more concerned about Add-ins in #Outlook because you don’t what these 3rd party reads your data , I mean your email data unless you read each 3rd part’s privacy terms and condition. So if you are concerned about security like me or dealing with a an enterprise environment then these add-ins may not work you. some of them will such as Bing , Google but printing email as print etc may not work.
So I’ll walk through here removing these add-ins
If you notice that Uber add-ins is not there.

Microsoft Exchange has just announced support for EAS Protocol version 16.1 on their blog.
They have introduced three new major capabilities
- Improved Keyword Search – Get quicker, more relevant results when searching your inbox. Clients can now perform Keyword Query Language searches (from, to, subject, etc.) by using the new Find command.
- Propose New Time – Users have asked for the ability to propose a new time for a meeting while on the go, and we have added full support for new time proposals in EAS 16.1.
- Account-Only Remote Wipe – Administrators can now request clients using EAS 16.1 to wipe only Exchange data from a user’s device.
Customers with their mailbox in Office 365 can take advantage of these new features when their favorite EAS client is updated.
How do you know your mailbox is supported with the new EAS Protocol?
As an end user, how can you tell if your mailbox is enabled for EAS version 16.1? The simplest way is to run an “Exchange ActiveSync” test at https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com and look for version 16.1 listed as one of the supported protocol versions (
MS-ASProtocolVersions header in the OPTIONS command response) in the test results. Note that you need a valid Office 365 email address and password in order to run that test, and the results are specific to that mailbox only (not the entire tenant).
Checking EAS Version using Exchange Remote Connectivity Analyzer
If you see here (above), it show that the my mailbox has the EAS 16.1 version.
How to Check EAS 16.1 on you Mobile Device?
In my case I’m using iPhone 6.0, and the app below shows that these capabilities are available.
If you only OWA APP for Exchange is capable of doing these new feature. Outlook App and iOS default Exchange and Outlook can’t perform these features. I believe #Apple will have to support it. But i wonder why only one OWA APP is supporting EAS 16.1 and why not Outlook APP.
In my opinion it would have been perfect if it supports the native client on iOS which dominate most of the mobile market. I’m not sure about Windows Phone and Android Phones. I believe Apple will get it fixed while I still have to hear from someone if these new capabilities are possible on Windows Phone.
And this is how you can also verify your EAS Version of you mailbox using Office 365 Admin Panel
