Third time’s the charm – 14.03.0038.004

—————————————————————————————————————————————————–

More over a month ago Microsoft released version 14.3.38.2 of Exchange 2010 MP but it was pulled by Exchange team soon after that because it was causing mailboxes to get quarantined. So this new version just fixes that issue but as the older version is not available no more here are the changes included in it:

  • Resolved ObjectNotFoundExceptions in correlation engine   The SP1 version of the Correlation Engine could encounter ObjectNotFoundExceptions on a regular basis. The number of exceptions of this type is significantly reduced in this update.
  • Reduced load on RMS/MS   A number of improvements were made to reduce the load of the Management Pack on the RMS/MS. The following specific changes were made:

    o Reduced the number of read operations the Correlation Engine makes to the SDK to get entity and monitor states

    o Improved cache handling in Correlation Engine when Management Pack updates are applied

    o Increased correlation interval time from 1.5 minutes to 5 minutes

  • Reduced load due to discovery  The discovery interval was increased from 4 hours to 24 hours and improved handling of Domain Controller objects to decrease churn
  • Improved Database Copy Health monitoring  Replaced KHI: Database dismounted or service degraded with One Healthy Copy monitor to decrease load on RMS
  • Improved Performance monitoring  Non reporting Perf Instances are now enabled by default and some write operations were removed to decrease unnecessary writes to the database
  • Support for Exchange 2010 SP2
