Exchange 2010 SP3 RU8 Released


The Exchange team today announced the availability of Update Rollup 8 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3. RU8 is the latest rollup of customer fixes available for Exchange Server 2010. The release contains fixes for customer reported issues and previously released security bulletins.  In addition to addressing previous security issues, Exchange 2010 SP3 RU8 also corrects the security issue MS14-075.  For Exchange 2010 this is also discussed  in Outlook Web App Token Spoofing Vulnerability – CVE-2014-6319.

Update 12-12-2014:  Exchange Server 2010 SP3 Update Rollup 8 has been re-released to the Microsoft download centre resolving a regression discovered in the initial release. The updated RU8 package corrects the issue which impacted users connecting to Exchange from Outlook. The issue was isolated to the MAPI RPC layer and was quickly remediated to deliver the updated RU8 package. The updated RU8 v2 package is version number 14.03.0224.002

Update 10-12-2014:  Please see comments at the end of this post with an issue relating to RPC Client Access.  There is a TechNet forum where the community is discussing this issue.  In the RPC Client Access the forum post notes that the following can be observed: “Log Watson: [IndexOutOfRangeException] Index was outside the bounds of the array”.

Update 10-12-2014:  Exchange 2010 SP3 RU8 has been removed from the download centre until the above issue has been resolved.

Important Notes

Now, before we rush off to download and install this there are a couple of items to mention!

 

  • Test the update in your lab before installing in production.  If in doubt test…

  • If the Exchange server does not have Internet connectivity then this introduces significant delay in building the Native images for the .Net assemblies as the server is unable to get to http://crl.microsoft.com.  To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

    1. On the Tools menu in Windows Internet Explorer, click Internet Options, and then click the Advanced tab.

    2. In the Security section, click to clear the Check for publisher's certificate revocation check box, and then click OK.

    We recommend that you clear this security option in Internet Explorer only if the computer is in a tightly controlled environment. When setup is complete, click to select the Check for publisher’s certificate revocation check box again.

  • Update Internet facing CAS servers first

  • Backup any OWA customisations as they will be removed

  • Test (yes technically this is in here for a second time but it is important!)

Cheers,

Rhoderick

    Exchange 2013 CU7 has been released to the Microsoft download centre! Exchange 2013 has a different servicing

  2. anonymouscommenter says:

    Installation of this CU caused approx half of our Win7/Outlook 2010 clients (Office Pro Plus 2010 SP2) and our only Win 8.1/Outlook 2013 client to have connectivity issues to the Exchange server (client hangs, unable to view email in preview, unable to
    open email, unable to delete email, "Cannot start reminder service" error, etc.). Rolling back the update resolved the issue. Similar symptoms and resolution discussed at:

    In addition to the above symptoms, the RPC CA logs had large numbers of entries on affected users of the type:
    2014-12-10T12:02:32.052Z,50,188,/o=xxxx/ou=xxxxxx Group/cn=Recipients/cn=xxxxx,,OUTLOOK.EXE,14.0.7108.5000,Classic,,,ncacn_ip_tcp,,,fault,00:00:00,,Watson: [IndexOutOfRangeException] Index was outside the bounds of the array.

    Thanks a lot for heads up!!

    Did rolling back to 7 resolve the issue for anyone?

  12. FYI – Exchange 2010 SP3 RU8v2 is now available from the download centre

    Cheers,

    In no way should you install this update, I have never seen so many issues with Outlook 2010 as this update creates. Outlook will produce random folder locking issue, deleting email issues, and several other issues. Messages like Cannot open this item
    and Cannot open this folder, Cannot expand the folder, Cannot display the folder. Microsoft Outlook cannot access the specific folder location. These are examples of what you will see and triggered when new email comes into your inbox. The messages will appear
    from different email being opened and different folders within Outlook. Random folder and message issues.

  14. ForbesCorporation says:

    To Answer Mikes Question, yes if you uninstall Rollup 8 it appears to fix the issue.

  15. Was that on the V2 of the update?

    Cheers,
    Rhoderick

  16. ForbesCorporation says:

    The new rollup 8 V2 seems so far to fix these issues. We uninstalled the original rollup 8 before installing the rollup 8 V2. So far just about everything seems OK however we do see an issue with Inbound email that just comes into the inbox marked as unread.
    You can select any item in the inbox and the unread message at the top of the inbox stays unread because you have not selected it – so far so good. Now if you close outlook and come back into Outlook and then click on any other item in the INBOX the First
    Item that is unread will now change from BOLD to unbold as a Read Item. This appears to happen to only the first ITEM that is marked unread, if there are several unread messages below the first unread message they remain unread in BOLD but the first item now
    appears in regular letters not bold even though you have not read the message.

  17. anonymouscommenter says:

    Does v.2 of the RU contain the updated version of security issue MS14-075?

  18. Let me see if that repros for me.
