Microsoft Exchange vulnerability has been in the news for the last few weeks and today Exchange PG released early Cumulative Updates This update is pretty for all versions (supported) versions of Exchange Server.

Release Details

The KB articles that describe the fixes in each release and product downloads are available as follows:


What is a common update fix?

  • 4490060 Exchange Web Services Push Notifications can be used to gain unauthorized access

This particular fix applies to all the CU for all Exchange Servers. No matter which version of Exchange Server you are ruining, this fix is available as below in different CU

This change in behavior becomes effective in the following Exchange releases:

How to Deploy

There is no special requirement. If you deploy the CU then bring you servers in the maintenance mode or you can run the /PrepareAd from the binaries. and don’t forget to Test, Test and Test in your lab first.

In order to apply these changes, a directory admin will need to run the cumulative update setup program with the /PrepareAD parameter. When multiple Exchange versions co-exist in a single Active Directory forest, the cumulative update matching the latest version of Exchange deployed should be used to run /PrepareAD. Setup will automatically run /PrepareDomain in the domain where /PrepareAD is executed. Environments with multiple domains in the forest will need to run the cumulative update setup program using the /PrepareDomain parameter in all domains in the forest. These steps will update the rights granted to Exchange Servers in the Active Directory to meet the new permissions scope. More information on /PrepareAD and /PrepareDomain is available at this link.”

Transport routing in Exchange hybrid deployments

What is centralized transport?

If you already have heavily invested in your on-premise mail gateways and other infrastructure and you plan on moving to Office 365, Exchange Hybrid is the way to go in a long haul. When you have Exchange 2016 configured for Hybrid Setup with Office this where it come. 

So Why Centralized Transport?

It all depends on your business requirements, and if you don’t then you are good with regular setup routing via Office 365 , let’s cloud manage it for you. IF YOU DO HAVE such as regulatory and compliance requirements and even for other purpose where you want you emails MUST  route through your on-premises infrastructure then you need to configure it this way. In this video I will walk you over how does it really work.

Exchange 2013/2016 Installation will be BLOCKED If?

Yes this will happen in Jun ’18 release of Exchange cumulative update and after that If your system does not meet requirements which included .NET Framework 4.7.1 it would not allow to you install either exchange 2013 or Exchange 2016.

So make sure in the next few months you do testing in your lab environment and make sure it goes through you change management process (if any) and get the system ready. This is major update. At this point it not clear how or what will happen if you have existing Exchange 2013/2016 without .NET Framework 4.7.1 and new Servers installed after June ’18 with .NET 4.7.1.

I will update this post as soon as I hear back from Exchange product team, till then stay tuned.

Notes From Microsoft iGnite 2016 #msignite

Running from Hall A to Hall C and then back to Hall A I needed up walking/running approximately 4 miles (6 km) per day, yeah it was good cardio J

I went there to learn more about on-premises Exchange Server 2016 and Hybrid configuration with Office 365 BUT was not quite impressed though you search the sessions you will find approx. 57 sessions on EXCHANGE but most of the are just Office 365 features and product marketing. It looks like iGnite email related (messaging) content were focused to a specific customer market or in other words they ignored the large enterprise customer running complex exchange environment.

I’d also mention that there were some sessions which I liked most and one of them was just specific to Office 365 but it is related to on-premises stuff (Below is the list of sessions I liked most or in other word 5/5 on the score card).

Challenge cloud encryption myths and learn about Office 365 BYOK plans
Yes, now you can bring your own keys.  Very information session from Jaclynn.

Migrate to Exchange Online via Exchange Hybrid
2nd session of the day for Hybrid.  Tons of information, must watch Tim and Mike did an awesome job.  And yes don’t forget to run the RCW on-premises.

Meet twin sons of different mothers (MVPs and Exchange engineers). It was a very interactive session carried out by Tony Redmond with folks from Product Team (Karim Battish and Jeff Mealiffe) and Exchange MVP (Andrew Higginbotham and Jeff Guillet). The room was full of on-premises Exchange Enthusiast.

The Ultimate Field Guide to Office 365 Groups. Microsoft gave a lot of information at Ignite about future developments for Office 365 Groups. This session provided a counterweight in that it focused on how groups are used in the field. This session was carried out by Tony Redmond and Bejamin Niaulin.

Unplug with the experts on Exchange Server and Exchange Online
Another interactive session. Discussion on on-premises, Modern-Auth, ADFS and Hybrid

 

So to conclude that overall it was a busy event, specially with running from one hall to another (wish they plan it better next year). Other than attending these breakout sessions I got most of questions answered by meeting the product team at the booth, I spent HOURS with them.
