This issue has been solved. See solution.


we migrated our EV 9 environment to EV10.0.2 with the help of the Server Migration Wizard. Since then we are unable to enable new users.

Eventlog says:

Synchronization of existing users fails with the same error (parameter incorrect, BUT the ldap path name is correct, according to the eventlog).
Still, I get the same dtrace error for the sync, including this one (same lines):
{CAgentExchSynch::OpenMailboxStore} HRXEX fn trace : Error [0x80070057], [.\AgentExchSynch.cpp, lines {2144,2154}, built Sep 12 21:03:51 2012].
Any ideas where i can start the troubleshoot?
I have seen already, but the permissions are set correctly.

Hm. I'd look at the account itself, looks like it has 'something' behind the name. PErhaps check your ExchangeMailboxEntry table to see if the entry there is corrcet.

Thank you, Gertjan, MCSE, MCITP,MCTS, SCS, STS

Yes, thats what I have noticed too.

I just checked my ExchangeMailboxEntry Table.

1) Lots of those entrys (only new accounts if I see that correctly) have the additional characters under legaxymbxdn. Why's that?

2) Regarding the (failing) synchronization of existing users:
The Legacymbxdn of those users are looking "normal". No addition charakters, nothing obvious there. 

3) Does anyone know if they changed something on how special german characters (aöäüß) are handled?  At some point, the legacymbxnames of users with such characters looks like this:

/ Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=user2c42ee91


I have just deleted one of the new accounts in the exchangemailboxentry table and did run the provisioning task again. According to the report it did add perfectly fine without any additinal characters. However, in the corresponding SQL LegacyMBXDN it has (the same) 3 additional characters as before.


Forget about that idea. :)

I just checked the rows in my lab and it has similar entrys. 3 Additional characters for every legacymbxentry in a exchange 2007 or 2010 environment. For Exchange2003 entrys the additional characters are missing. Same for the äöüß characters.

Found the solution.

There was a typing error in our GC value. Still everything was working fine, except enabling/disabling user + synchronization :)
