Exchange 2010 SP1 Update Rollup 5

exchange-2010-logo-7333411.png?w=150&h=71#038;h=71Today the Exchange Team released Rollup 5 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (KB2582113). This update raises Exchange 2010 version number to 14.1.339.1.

I’d recommend to thoroughly test rollup 4 in a test and acceptance environment prior to implementing it in production. After the Rollup 3 and Rollup 4 debacles, I can’t emphasize this enough: test, test. test.

· 2556156 Extra.exe crashes when it performs RPC activity checks against an Exchange Server 2010 server

· 2556352 “ChangeKey is required for this operation” error message in Outlook for Mac 2011 in an Exchange Server 2010 environment

When running ForeFront Protection for Exchange, make sure you disable ForeFront before installing the rollup and re-enable it afterwards, otherwise the Information Store and Transport services may not start. You can disable ForeFront using fscutility /disable and enable it using the fscutility /enable command.

Note that update rollups are cumulative, i.e. they contain fixes released in earlier update rollups for the same product level (RTM, SPx). This means you don’t need to install previous update rollups during a fresh installation but can start with the latest rollup available right away.

Exchange 2010 SP1 RU4 V2

After pulling Rollup 4 for Exchange Server 2010 SP1 on July 13th, after potential data loss issues were discovered during folders movements, and publishing an intermediate hotfix to resolve the RU4 issues without a rollup rerelease, the Exchange team decided to publish an updated version of rollup 4. This is somehow unexpected because of the expected release of rollup 5 in August. It’s good to see the Exchange team getting very open in this post about recent missteps in published rollups for such a mission critical application.

Exchange 2010 SP1 Rollup 4 v2 raises Exchange 2010′s version number to 14.1.323.6 (initial release was 14.1.323.1). The related knowledgebase article is kb2579150.
