Known issues in Cumulative Update 12

  • The Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus cmdlet from an Exchange Server 2013 server fails against databases on Exchange Server 2019 and 2016 servers and returns Error 0xe0434352 from RpccGetCopyStatusEx4.

    Workaround: Run Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus from an Exchange Server 2019 or 2016 server.

  • Checking the Exchange Server 2019 or 2016 database status from the Exchange admin center (EAC) might fail and return an “HTTP 500” or “Your request couldn’t be completed. Please try again in a few minutes” error message.

    Workaround: Make sure that the admin mailbox is on an Exchange Server 2019 or 2016 server. If the admin account has no mailbox, make sure that all arbitration mailboxes (especially the “SystemMailbox{bb558c35-97f1-4cb9-8ff7-d53741dc928c}”) are on an Exchange Server 2019 or 2016 server.
