Updated: Exchange 2003 MOM Management Pack Configuration Wizard

I've been on holiday lately and therefore catching up with things, so there's a chance you may have already seen this. Anyway, last week Microsoft released a new version of the Exchange 2003 MOM Management Pack Configuration Utility which can be found here.

IMPORTANT: Before installing the new version of the configuration utility (configapp.msi) the user MUST remove the previous version (“Exchange Management Pack Configuration Utility” in Add/Remove Programs).

List of fixed issues:

1 - Failure if there are trusts with NT4 domains (error msg: 'Failed to get basic information about the Active Directory. Error message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.'). This error was noted in several comments to a previous blog entry of mine here.

2 - It stops to load all Exchange servers if one doesn’t have all properties correctly set in the AD – now it gives a better error msg and continues to load the remaining servers. Previous error msg: “Information about Exchange servers cannot be loaded from Active Directory. Error message: Specified argument was out of range of valid values. Parameter name: Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.”

3 - When checking the mailbox access account the applications was binding against the wrong GC (which worked for the majority of the cases but not all, it was binding against CG://.)

Thanks to Paulo Janotti of Microsoft for informing me of this release, and also to Michael Cooper for also informing everyone of this release in his comments to the previous blog entry on this utility.
