Updating Exchange Service Pack, throws an error “Cannot find a recipient update service responsible for domain ‘dc=sample,dc=domain,dc=com'”

February 15th, 2015 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

Problem:

When updating Exchange Service Pack, it throws a few error:

Cannot find the recipient update service responsible for domain ‘dc=sample,dc=domain,dc=com’. new and existing users may not be properly Exchange-enabled.”

The Windows Firewall service must be started before Setup can continue.

 

Analysis:

You checked the Exchange log (ExchangeSetup.log). It showed:

Error ONE:

[2/16/2015 1:11:59 AM] [1] [ERROR] Unexpected Error
[2/16/2015 1:11:59 AM] [1] [ERROR] The operation could not be performed because object ‘exchserver01’ could not be found on domain controller ‘adserver01.domain.com’.
[2/16/2015 1:11:59 AM] [1] Ending processing.
[2/16/2015 1:11:59 AM] [1] [ERROR] The Windows Firewall service must be started before Setup can continue.

You verify from the Domain Controller adserver01.domain.com that the Exchange server object is there. You also verify that the Exchange Server is able to communicate with the adserver01.domain.com

 

Error TWO:

Cannot find the recipient update service responsible for domain ‘dc=sample,dc=domain,dc=com’. new and existing users may not be properly Exchange-enabled.”

You will need to remove the RUS manually. Most likely Exchange 2003 wasn’t decomm-ed properly (if you are no longer using Exchange 2003).

Solution:

Error ONE:

Ignore the error “[2/16/2015 1:11:59 AM] [1] [ERROR] The operation could not be performed because object ‘exchserver01’ could not be found on domain controller ‘adserver01.domain.com’.”

Just proceed with starting the Windows Firewall service and rerun the update of Service Pack.

 

Error TWO:

Remove the RUS (If you no longer have any Exchange 2003 server in your environment).

You will not be able to delete the Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration) by using Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 System Manager. Perform the following steps to delete theRecipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration) by using ADSI Edit (AdsiEdit.msc):

  1. Open ADSI Edit, expand Configuration, expand CN=Configuration,CN=<domain>, expandCN=Services, expand CN=Microsoft Exchange, expand CN=<Exchange organization name>, expand CN=Address Lists Container, and then select CN=Recipient Update Services.
  2. In the result pane, right-click Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration), clickDelete, and then click Yes to confirm the deletion.

Configure Astro IPTV using a Custom Router (OpenWRT) – Updated 1

February 7th, 2015 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

By default, with Astro IPTV, you will be getting a Technicolor device from Maxis.

I will show you how to replace the Technicolor and replace it with an OpenWRT router (I’m using “OpenWrt Barrier Breaker 14.07”).

Pre-requisites:

  1. Ensure that your router is already flashed to the OpenWRT version. See this post if you have not done so: Installing OpenWRT.

Setup of OpenWRT, Connect to PPPoE (after flashing to OpenWRT):

  1. Change Password. On opening OpenWRT router, you will be asked to login. The default password for OpenWRT is empty. Login and change your password.
  2. Connect to PPPoE. First thing you want to do is to connect to PPPoE, so your WAN will be able to connect to the TM fiber device. Click Network -> Interface -> next to WAN, click Edit. Change the protocol to PPPoE-WAN. Specify your username “5 digits@home.maxis.com.my or 5 digits@public.maxis.com.my”. Password by default should be the your 5 digits with a value 1 behind. Eg, if your username is 12345@home.maxis.com.my, your password will be 123451.
  3. Click Save and Apply.

wan

Create new VLAN for Maxis home fibre and Astro IPTV:

  1. Switch. Click Network -> Switch.
  2. Under VLAN ID, modify the value 2 to value 621.
  3. Port 1 by default should be your WAN port. Ensure that CPU and Port 1 both are set to “Tagged”. Leave the rest of Ports as Off.
  4. Click ADD. Change the VLAN ID for the new VLAN Interface to 823.
  5. With your Astro IPTV decoder plugged into your router’s Port 4, it should be then Port 5 in the OpenWRT Switch interface. Under VLAN ID 823, ensure that CPU, Port 1 both are “Tagged”. For Port 5, set it as “Untagged”. Rest set as Off. Under VLAN ID 1, turn off the tagging for Port 5.
  6. Click Save and Apply.
