Mailbox move issues from 2003 to 2010 sp1

When trying to move a mailbox you receive

MapiExceptionNoSupport: IExchangeFastTransferEx.TransferBuffer failed


  • Exchange 2003
  • Migrating to Exchange 2010 SP1
  • You use a product that directly touches your mail boxes (i.e. Enterprise Vault)
  • Moving between 2003 mail stores works
  • Moving to 2010 RTM mail store may also work.
  • Soma mailboxes may move ok but not all.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  • Ran ISINTEG on the database to look for any logical corruption
  • Tried moving to another mail store before migrating to 2010 SP1


  • Permission on the mailboxes may have been changed by a 3rd party product.
  • Exchange 2010 is more sensitive to proper permission setting on a mailbox


  • Reset the DACL on the mail boxes with the issue
    • Download FPDAVADMIN
    • Install on a workstation
    • Run PFDAVADMIN and connect to the specifc exchange server mailbox
      • File –> Connect –> Select “All Mailboxes” and populate the Exchange and GC names.
      • Expand mailboxes
      • Right click the mailbox with the issue and choose fix folder DACL


    • Try the move again

Windows 7 \ Windows 2008 R2 Slow Download

imageOK this is a twilight zone issue.

We had a situation where a 2008 R2 server has very slow download\transfer speeds across a WAN\ Internet on a new server using 2008 R2, if we change the OS its all good and if we do another server its all good.


Troubleshooting steps:

  • We investigated the network looking for issues with switch and routers
  • Disabled all advanced network protocols
    • netsh int tcp show global to view
    • netsh int tcp set global <parameter>=disabled
    • disabled all from NIC properties –> configure
  • various other bang your head on the wall
  • Lots o research
    • Found some info indicating that on the Win 7\R2 Kernel if you have more memory than the OS supports it can cause a related issue.


Remove all memory over what the OS supports: i.e 2008 R2 standard = 32gb/

It sounds totally weird but its true.

Configure Send email to Sharepoint on SBS 2011

Update for RTM (thanks Glenn!)

Note this works for the public beta and is subject to change

This assumes that your domain is and WSF is the domain specific to Sharepoint, everything that is RED is a value you need to set

· Configure Address Space in Exchange

New-AcceptedDomain –Domainname –domaintype ExternalRelay –name

· Configure Foreign Connector with drop folder

From PowerShell:

  • Mkdir “C:\Drop Directory\WSF”
  • CACLS “C:\Drop Directory\WSF” /e /p administrator:f %userdomain%\jedidiah_hammond:f “network service”:f
  • New-ForeignConnector -Name “WSF Connector” -AddressSpaces “” -SourceTransportServers “Hub01″,”Hub02″
  • Set-TransportServer Hub01 -RootDropDirectoryPath “C:\Drop Directory
  • Set-ForeignConnector “WSF Connector” -DropDirectory “WSF”

· Configure WSF to use drop folder

  • Start –> All Programs –> MS SP 2010 Prod –> SP 2010 Central Admin
  • System Settings –> Configure incoming e-mail Settings
  • Enable Sites on this server to receive e-mail = yes
  • E-Mail server display address =
  • E-mail Drop Folder = “C:\Drop Directory\WSF”

· Mail enable a WSF document library
