We have the same problem and (dont shoot the messenger) there isnt good news. MSME 8.x DOES NOT support SP1. See KB81356. No workaround except to uninstall MSME or what we did was disable the transport agents. However, your users will not have AV and AS protection! The support person said there isnt a beta/RC hotfix for this and they do not have an ETA!! If you want to disable the transport agents, run:
get-transportagent to list the transport agents
disable-transportagent <identity from cmd above>
I did try this as well: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2938053 without any success.
- removed MSME completely
- restarted server
- ran MS script from kb article
- reinstalled MSME: first full package, then patch 1, then rollup 1 for patch 1
- MSExchange Transport service refused to start.
- Tried to restart server. Still no luck. Re-ran MS script. Still no success.
had to remove MSME again to restore Exchange transport functionality.
the fix from microsoft is actually addressing the problem and the steps you performed are correct. right now the minimum level that msme needs to be at to work with sp1 is msme8 rtw + Patch1
with regards to what you are seeing, the issue could be that the correct agent dlls are not getting installed due to it being sp1. can you look in the msme\bin\e2007agents folder and see if the following files are present:
McComInteropX64.dll - version 8.0.8072
McTxAgentX64.dll - version 8.0.7987
McTxIpAgent.dll - version 8.0.7987
McUtilX64.dll - version 8.0.7987
also i wanted to let anyone reading this post know that windows 2012 r2 is now a supported platform for msme 8. see KB76903
I see there is a Microsoft fix in the form of a PowerShell script.
Would this resolve the issue? I was getting ready to call in for support help and a friend passed this to me this afternoon.
Did you try the Microsoft fix that was released very recently?
I might give it a try if I did hear anything back.
tlange, KB76903 doesn't list Exchange 2013 SP1 (https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB76903&actp=null&viewloca le=en_US&showDraft=false&platinum_status=false&locale=en_US). Is it incorrect?
