Programatically Add Heys and Values to edgetransport.exe.config for Exchange 2010

February 22nd, 2012 No comments

Recently, some testing on some new Exchange 2010 hub transport servers yielded some less than expected performance results. Processor utilization was much higher during sustained load testing of message throughput in some dedicated message journal sites.

A colleague worked to determine a solution, and came up with adding two keys and respective values to the EdgeTransport.exe.config file in [Exchange installation folder]\bin. This caused a substantial drop in processor utilization, but caused another problem – how to deploy this solution easily, in a repeatable fashion? We certainly don’t want to have to manually edit dozens of XML files across the production environment.

Our deployment method was entirely scripted, so I set out to find a way to incorporate the fix into the server provisioning scripts. Having not had to deal with editing XML files before, I did a fair amount of searching online, but had trouble with nearly everything I found. Obscure errors, and overly complex code had me just cobbling some things together until it worked. I finally came up with the New-AppSetting function below. It’s lean and mean, but it works.

function New-AppSetting {
	<#
	.SYNOPSIS
	  Adds keys and values to the EdgeTransport.exe.config file for Exchange 2010 	

	.DESCRIPTION
	  Adds user defined keys and values to the EdgeTransport.exe.config file for Exchange 2010 and restarts MSExchangeTransport service 

	.NOTES

	    				: ExecutionPolicy of RemoteSigned or Unrestricted

    	Author(s)    			: Pat Richard (pat@innervation.com)
	Dedicated Post			: http://www.ucunleashed.com/1055
	Disclaimer   			: You running this script means you won't blame me if this breaks your stuff.
	Info Stolen from 		:	

	.EXAMPLE
		New-AppSetting -key [key] -value [value]

	.INPUTS
		None. You cannot pipe objects to this script.

	#Requires -Version 2.0
	#>

	[cmdletBinding(SupportsShouldProcess = $true)]
	param(
		[parameter(Position = 0, ValueFromPipeline = $false, ValueFromPipelineByPropertyName = $true, Mandatory = $true, HelpMessage = "No key specified")]
		[string]$key,
		[parameter(Position = 0, ValueFromPipeline = $false, ValueFromPipelineByPropertyName = $true, Mandatory = $true, HelpMessage = "No value specified")]
		[string]$value
	)
	[string]$configfile = $env:ExchangeInstallPath+"bin\EdgeTransport.exe.config"
	if (Test-Path $ConfigFile){
		[xml]$xml = Get-Content $ConfigFile
		[string]$currentDate = (get-date).tostring("MM_dd_yyyy-hh_mm_s")
		[string]$backup = $configfile + "_$currentDate"
		Copy-Item $configfile $backup
		$new = $xml.CreateElement('add')
		$new.SetAttribute('key', $key)
		$new.SetAttribute('value', $value)
		$xml.configuration.appSettings.AppendChild($new) | Out-Null
		$xml.Save($ConfigFile)
	}
	Restart-Service MSExchangeTransport
} # end function New-AppSetting

You call it via:

New-AppSetting -key [key name] -value [value]

such as

 New-AppSetting -key "RecipientThreadLimit" -value "20"

And it will add the key at the bottom of the list in EdgeTransport.exe.config and restart the transport service for the change to take effect. Prior to making the change, it creates a backup copy of EdgeTransport.exe.config for safe keeping.

One caveat – I didn’t have a lot of time to add some error checking or validation. The script does not check to see if the key is already present in the list (in our case, it’s not). So if you run the function multiple times with the same key name, you’ll end up with that key appearing multiple times in EdgeTransport.exe.config. I worked around this quickly in my script by using the following:

if ((Get-Content ($env:ExchangeInstallPath+"bin\edgetransport.exe.config")) -notmatch "RecipientThreadLimit"){
	New-AppSetting -key "RecipientThreadLimit" -value "20"
}

If I get some free cycles, I’ll streamline this a little more. But it works, and we’re able to continue deploying dozens of hub transport servers.

Exchange Server 2010 SP2 Is Now Available

December 5th, 2011 No comments

Microsoft has released Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Exchange Server 2010. Release Notes for Exchange 2010 SP2 includes a list of known issues.

The 535MB download is just like RTM – a full install package. Existing installations can be upgraded, as new installs can be completed with the Service Pack integrated.

 

What’s New in Exchange 2010 SP2

The What’s New in Exchange 2010 SP2 has comprehensive list of the changes and enhancements, including:

Address Book Policies

This is a long sought after feature which allows the segmentation of the Global Address List. This essentially allows an organization to have different address books visible to different users and/or groups. This is great, especially in large organization that may want users to just see users in their division, or if an org wants to do a multi-tenant scenario.

Outlook Mobile Access (OWA mini)

This is essentially the old Outlook Mobile Access brought back to life, which allows devices with small screens, such as mobile devices, to see a simple to use web page for accessing their mailbox. This is great for devices that don’t support Exchange ActiveSync.

Hybrid Configuration Wizard

This feature is based around on-premise and cloud based scenarios such as Office365.

OWA Cross-Site redirection

Redirection of client connections across AD sites is now possible.

Installation notes

Schema Updates

The service pack does do schema updates in order to support some of the new features.

Required Role Features

Also, on Client Access Servers (CAS), the IIS 6 WMI Compatibility feature is now required.

Installing from the command line

Upgrading is quite simple. Open a command prompt and navigate to the folder containing the extracted files and run:

Setup /m:upgrade /InstallWindowsComponents

The setup routine will automatically install the Web-WMI feature if needed, and upgrade the server.

Installation of SP2 via command prompt

Installation of SP2 via command prompt

Installation from the graphical user interface (GUI)

As mentioned above, the IIS 6 WMI Compatibility (Web-WMI) feature is required. If you plan to install the Service Pack using the GUI, you must manually add this feature. To install the feature, open PowerShell, and type:

Import-Module ServerManager Add-WindowsFeature web-wmi

As shown below.

Add-WindowsFeature Web-WMI

If you don’t manually install this feature, the service pack installation will fail:

SP2 fails - IIS 6 WMI Compatibility required

SP2 fails – IIS 6 WMI Compatibility required

Once the SP2 file is downloaded, double click on it to extract the files to a folder.

Navigate to the folder containing the extracted files and double click on setup.exe and follow the prompts.

Installation on Database Availability Groups (DAG)

If you are going to apply SP2 to servers that are members of a DAG, run the StartDagServerMaintenance.ps1 script on the server first. This accomplishes several things, including suspending mailboxdatabase copying for each database; prevents the activation of databases on the server and moves active copies on the server to copies on other servers; prevents the server from taking on the PAM role. When finished, run the StopDagServerMaintenance.ps1 script, which allows databases to be activated, begins the copying, and allows the server to become the PAM. Mike Pfeiffer has a great blog post on this process.

Download

Download the Service Pack from the Microsoft Download Center here.

A stand-alone version of the SP2 Help file is available here.

Unified Messaging language packs for SP2 are available here.

Customizing the Lync Meeting Page – Part II

November 1st, 2011 4 comments

In part I, I showed you how to change the logo for the meeting landing page. In this part, we’ll go through adding options to the page for various types of clients.

By default, when entering a meeting, a machine with the Lync client will open up and automatically join. But what if the person attending the meeting doesn’t have the Lync client? A machine without the Lync client will open a popup browser window and use Silverlight, but that doesn’t support all Lync features.

silverlight client

silverlight client

We can allow users with the OCS 2007 R2 legacy Communicator client to use that to join the meeting. We simply open Lync Management Shell and use the Set-CsWebServiceConfiguration cmdlet on our Front-End servers:

Set-CsWebServiceConfiguration -ShowJoinUsingLegacyClientLink $true

And the web page looks like this when opened:

Join using legacy client

Join using legacy client

We can also provide a link for attendees to download the Lync 2010 Attendee client, which provides a better client experience. We can do this by using the same cmdlet in Lync Management Shell, but with a different switch:

Set-CsWebServiceConfiguration -ShowDownloadCommunicatorAttendeeLink $true

Combining the two together allows all possible options:

Set-CsWebServiceConfiguration -ShowDownloadCommunicatorAttendeeLink $true -ShowJoinUsingLegacyClientLink $true

At this point, attendees can join the meeting with the OCS Communicator, Lync, Lync Attendee, or web browser clients. The user would see this (assuming no Lync client installed):

Allow legacy and attendee clients

Allow legacy and attendee clients

Combine that with the custom logo configuration from part 1, and we now have a much more personal and flexible Meet page.

Customizing the Lync Server 2010 Meeting Page

October 25th, 2011 12 comments

If you’d like to customize the appearance of the Meet web page (the page a user is taken to when they click the link in a meeting request), you can quickly swap out the Lync logo image with your own logo. By default, the Meet page shows the Lync logo:

Standard Meet page

The Lync logo image file is called CommunicatorLogoType.png. Backup the original and replace it with your logo saved as the same name in the following four folders of your Front End server(s):

  1. C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\Web Components\Join Launcher\Ext\Resources
  2. C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\Web Components\Join Launcher\Int\Resources
  3. C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\Web Components\Reach\Ext\Client\Resources
  4. C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\Web Components\Reach\Int\Client\Resources

The HTML code for the Meet pages doesn’t specify an image size. So you can use any size image you’d like. However, I don’t suggest you go over ~400 pixels in width or you risk breaking the layout. Here’s how ours looks after replacing the logo:

Customized Meet page

While it’s possible, I doubt the image will get overwritten with rollups or service packs.

Lync Users Can’t Download Address Book if Certificate Uses CNG

October 18th, 2011 6 comments

During the building of a greenfield Lync infrastructure, I ran into a problem where no users could download the address book. But everything related to the certs appeared to be correct. CN and SANs were correct, entire cert chain was valid, private keys were there, certs were in the correct stores and assigned in Lync, services started, etc. I also used Jeff Guillet’s Script to Force Download of the Lync Address Book to help speed up the troubleshooting. A considerable amount of troubleshooting went into the issue, and ultimately required a PSS ticket. After a couple of days of back and forth checking and testing, we narrowed it down.

It turns out that a bug with the CA was causing the certs it was generating to include Cryptography Next Generation (CNG). Web components in Lync, including Address Book & Group Expansion, use .Net 3.5. And .Net 3.5 does not support CNG.

Here’s how to check a certificate for CNG:

Open the Certificates snapin in MMC, and locate the certificate you’d like to inspect. Click on the Details tab and note the serial number:

Certificate serial number

Certificate serial number

Open a command prompt and type the following, using the serial number from above without the spaces:

Certutil -v -store my "<certificate serial number>" >Lync_Cert.txt

Next, open Lync_Cert.txt in notepad and look for “CERT_KEY_PROV_INFO_PROP_ID(2):”
A certificate with CNG will have the following:

CERT_KEY_PROV_INFO_PROP_ID(2):
Key Container = le-WebServer2yearv1.0-88442436-55a3-4627-ae3c-3aff914e6153
Unique container name: bdab748e31b2984e0ebe29e7b6839a7f_6418452a-074c-4888-af0e-b969abbc3435
Provider = Microsoft Software Key Storage Provider
ProviderType = 0
Flags = 20
KeySpec = 0

But it should look like this:

CERT_KEY_PROV_INFO_PROP_ID(2):
Key Container = le-WebServer2yearv1.0-88442436-55a3-4627-ae3c-3aff914e6153
Unique container name: bdab748e31b2984e0ebe29e7b6839a7f_6418452a-074c-4888-af0e-b969abbc3435
Provider = Microsoft RSA SChannel Crytographic Provider
ProviderType = C
Flags = 20
KeySpec = 1 — AT_KEYEXCHANGE

If the cert has CNG, you must request a new certificate without it.

PSS ultimately confirmed that this was a bug in the CA. We created a new template based on the WebServer template in the CA infrastructure, and generated new certs from that. Once I had correct certs installed, the problem instantly went away.

Hopefully, this might aid someone else having this issue.

One Liners: Setting Recovery Option to ‘restart’ for Lync/Skype4B Services

October 5th, 2011 3 comments

Lync 2013 logo 128x128A client wanted to configure the recovery options for services in Lync to help reduce downtime if/when a service stops. This was no big deal for me, except there are a dozen Lync servers, some of which have quite a few Lync services. I set out to make this easier than manually changing each service’s recovery options.

Service recovery options allow you to define what Windows should do if the service fails. The options are “Take No Action” (the default), “Restart the Service”, “Run a Program”, and “Restart the Computer”. These options can be defined for the first, second, and subsequent service failures. Additional parameters include how long to wait before resetting the failure counter and how long to wait after the service fails before performing the configured failure option. More complex options include running another program:

Default service recovery options before running sc.exe

Default service recovery options before running sc.exe

Unfortunately, PowerShell’s Set-Service doesn’t have a parameter for setting failure options, so we must rely on the command line sc.exe. Sc.exe can be used to create, modify, and delete services. We’ll use this to set our failure options to restart the services. Note: you must use “sc.exe” and not just “sc”, since in PowerShell, “sc” is an alias for Set-Content. The format is

sc.exe [service name] failure reset= [integer] actions= [actions]

Reset is measured in seconds. We’ll use 86400, which is a full 24 hours. Actions are specified as action/wait time in milliseconds. So “restart/5000” means to wait 5000 milliseconds (5 seconds), and then restart the service. The same action will be applied to the first, second, and subsequent service failure.

We’ll use Get-CimInstance with the Win32_Service classname to grab a list of all of the services, piping that to match descriptions that include ‘Lync’ or ‘Skype for Business’, and start modes that are “automatic”. The finished one liner command looks like this:

$services = Get-CimInstance -ClassName 'Win32_Service' | Where-Object {$_.description -imatch 'Lync|Skype for Business' -and $_.StartMode -eq 'Auto'}; foreach ($service in $services){sc.exe failure $service.name reset= 86400 actions= restart/5000}
Recovery options changed

Recovery options changed (click to enlarge)

When we view the properties of the service again, we see that the failure options are set to restart the service, and to reset the counter after 1 day. Since the restart option is only 5 seconds, the “Restart service after” field shows 0 minutes:

Service recovery options after running sc.exe

Service recovery options after running sc.exe

You can also specify different actions for each of the failure instances by adding more actions. For instance, let’s say you want to restart the service for the first and second failures, and reboot the server on subsequent failures. Simply combine the actions together, separating them with a slash, such as:

$services = Get-CimInstance -ClassName 'Win32_Service' | Where-Object {$_.description -imatch 'Lync|Skype for Business' -and $_.StartMode -eq 'Auto'}; foreach ($service in $services){sc.exe failure $service.name reset= 86400 actions= restart/5000/restart/5000/reboot/5000}

It might be wise to not set all of the failure instances to taking action, to prevent the server from getting stuck in a loop of taking action when a service is having serious issues. To only set the first two options, just use a double slash for the third, such as:

$services = Get-CimInstance -ClassName 'Win32_Service' | Where-Object {$_.description -imatch 'Lync|Skype for Business' -and $_.StartMode -eq 'Auto'}; foreach ($service in $services){sc.exe failure $service.name reset= 86400 actions= restart/5000/restart/5000//}

Obviously, a good monitoring solution such as System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) should be used to track and alert when services stop, and when other more serious issues arise. You don’t want to get into a scenario where a service is constantly stopping and being restarted without knowing.

Script: Set-Lync2010Features.ps1 – Automated Prereq PowerShell Script for Lync Server 2010

July 25th, 2011 14 comments

If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you may remember one of the more popular posts, Automated prerequisite installation via PowerShell for Exchange Server 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2. In that script, I used some simple techniques to help take some of the boring tasks out of installing Exchange 2010 servers. It was updated several times, and a new update is coming soon.

Well, Lync Server MVP Stale Hansen took that script and adapted it to installing the prerequisites for Lync Server 2010 and posted the results online. He did some neat things like installing the Best Practice Analyzer and the Resource Kit.

I took the script and added a bunch of functionality, including prerequisites for all Lync related roles, some added third-party tools such as the cool “Find Lync Versions” tool from Stephen Olsen, aka “Stumper”, was added as an option. Note: This automatically installs the .Net 4 framework.

I also added the ability to download some files that are needed – essentially automating some routine tasks. See the changelog file linked below for features added in each version.

For those of you doing Lync voice work, I haven’t done any deployments yet, so if there are tasks you’d like me to automate, please let me know and I can get them added when I have time.

Installation

Execution Policy: Third-party PowerShell scripts may require that the PowerShell Execution Policy be set to either AllSigned, RemoteSigned, or Unrestricted. The default is Restricted, which prevents scripts – even code signed scripts – from running. For more information about setting your Execution Policy, see Using the Set-ExecutionPolicy Cmdlet.

Donations

I’ve never been one to really solicit donations for my work. My offerings are created because *I* need to solve a problem, and once I do, it makes sense to offer the results of my work to the public. I mean, let’s face it: I can’t be the only one with that particular issue, right? Quite often, to my surprise, I’m asked why I don’t have a “donate” button so people can donate a few bucks. I’ve never really put much thought into it. But those inquiries are coming more often now, so I’m yielding to them. If you’d like to donate, you can send a few bucks via PayPal at https://www.paypal.me/PatRichard. Money collected from that will go to the costs of my website (hosting and domain names), as well as to my home lab.

Update Rollup 4 (UR4) for Exchange Server 2010 SP1 Released

June 22nd, 2011 No comments

UPDATE: This UR has been pulled from the Download Center due to problems with copying folders in Outlook. Please see Kevin Allison’s comments for more information.

Installation Notes:

If you haven’t installed Exchange Server yet, you can use the info at Quicker Exchange installs complete with service packs and rollups to save you some time.

Microsoft Update can’t detect rollups for Exchange 2010 servers that are members of a Database Availability Group (DAG). See the post Installing Exchange 2010 Rollups on DAG Servers for info, and a script, for installing update rollups.

Update Rollups should be applied to Internet facing Client Access Servers before being installed on non-Internet facing Client Access Servers.

If you’re installing the update rollup on Exchange servers that don’t have Internet access, see “Installing Exchange 2007 & 2010 rollups on servers that don’t have Internet access” for some additional steps.

Also, the installer and Add/Remove Programs text is only in English – even when being installed on non-English systems.

Note to Forefront users:

If you don’t disable Forefront before installing a rollup or service pack, and enable afterwards, you run the risk of Exchange related services not starting. You can disable Forefront by going to a command prompt and navigating to the Forefront directory and running FSCUtility /disable. To enable Forefront after installation of a UR or SP, run FSCUtility /enable.
