    I installed this last nite, and after a reboot all Exchange services didn't startup because their startup type was changed to disable!

  2. susan says:

    Eduardo – the normal process for any Exchange update rollup install is to change the services to disabled and then change them back.  At times the box will hiccup and not fully turn them back on.

    I've seen this happen before, this is not new.  The service startup change is part of the install process.

    Not so helpful to post a link to a missing KB (2696649)

    Would it be best to stay on RU6 and wait and see if there are any hiccups with this update before jumping the gun?

    I only say this because I have been burned before with a previous RU in the past.

    As long as they are not even able to either remove broken links or publish KB articles (see my post from 2 weeks ago)…

  6. Franko says:

    After installing Rollup 7 when I browse to Microsoft Update (Server 2003 R2 SP2 machine) it lists Rollup 6 as an available update and tries to install it. Is this normal?

  7. www.apacms.com - IT Support Services says:

    Forefront Protection for Exchange is very resource intensive, I found that it would often grind to a hold on my mail server and also after rebooting it your prevent exchange services from starting as it imbeds itself into exchange to perform forefront mail scanning.

    Has anyone else experience this same issue(s)?

    On our systems FF was abusing more than 50% of the machine's resources (Processor, RAM). That's the main reason why we upgraded from ForeFront to IronPort :)

    Hey, the link's there now!

    Exchange Team – I can't find this in our WSUS catalog to push out to servers – any idea why it's not added? 2K10 SP2 RU2 was released the same time and it is available in WSUS.

    Please advise!

  11. susan says:

    As of 5/30 it's not out on MU or WSUS yet which is why you are not seeing it on either location.

  12. BENNY says:

    When will SP3 Rollup 7 released for WSUS? I wit since nearly 2 months.

    Hi All, Yesterday we had got confirmation from MS that there is a regression bug on this rollup which affects XCONMultipart/Mixed attachments and they all appear Inline and not part of the message body. This is to corrected on the DLLs of HT servers – Microsoft.Internal.EmailMessage.dll  and Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Transport.dll. It's so sad that we come to know this information only after we had put it across our customer environment this month. Please have a note. The resolution seems to be requesting a Hotfix with PSS.
