Stop Exchange 2010 From Changing Resource Calendar Subject Lines

If you’re using resource mailboxes in Exchange 2010 and have it automatically process meeting invites, then you may notice that the subject lines are getting stripped and replaced with the organizer’s name. Depending on how you are using the resource mailbox, this may be an undesired action. If you wish to leave the original subject in the calendar entry, run the following command in the Exchange Management Shell:

Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity ResourceMailbox -AddOrganizerToSubject $false -DeleteSubject $false

Install .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows Server 2012

On the confirmation screen after selecting the .NET Framework 3.5 Features, you’ll notice a yellow bar telling you that an alternate path to the data files needs to be specified. Near the bottom of the window is an option to Specify an Alternate Source Path. Click this and specify the following path, substituting X with your optical drive with the Windows Server 2012 media:


Now the installation should complete without any issues.

Exchange 2010 Move Requests With BadItemLimit Larger Than 49

If you’re performing a local move request in Exchange 2010 using the Exchange Console, it will only allow you to set a BadItemLimit up to 49 items.

New-MoveRequest -Identity ‘SomeUser’ -TargetDatabase ExchDB -BadItemLimit 75 -AcceptLargeDataLoss
