Service ‘MSExchangeTransport’ failed to reach status ‘Running’ on this server

When you try to install MS Exchange 2010 SP2 in windows server 2008 R2
you may face the below error (below screen shoot)
Also getting the error: Service ‘MSExchangeTransport’ failed to reach status ‘Running’ on this server. I’ve attempted wiping the entire HDD, re-installing Windows Server, and then re-doing the Exchange install, only to get theexact same error the second time. All drivers are loaded properly and everything else (IIS/DNS/AD) is working fine.

Find The Total Number Of Mailboxes In Your Domain

How can you quickly find the total number of mailboxes in your Domain? You can do it now by running a shell command.

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited | Measure-Object

You can further customize the command to your  requirements. Let’s say that you want to find out the mailboxes in one particular database or one particular server. You can find it by adding more switches to the above command. Run the following…

Get-Mailbox –database dbname -ResultSize unlimited | Measure-Object

Get-Mailbox –Server servername -ResultSize unlimited | Measure-Object

There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706D9)

When you install Exchange 2010 SP2 , you face an error There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706D9)

“$error.Clear();
if (!(get-service MSExchangeADTopology* | where {$_.name -eq “MSExchangeADTopology”}))
{
install-ADTopologyService
}
” was run: “There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706D9)”.
There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706D9)

It seems the error is caused while trying to add a firewall rule, indicated by Interop.NetFw.INetFwRules.Add (INetFwRules is the rules collection of the built-in Windows Firewall).

I had a quick check with the firewall settings on the machine and it turned out the Windows Firewall was disabled. I figured that perhaps adding the rules failed because setup couldn’t communicate with the firewall service.

I enabled the Windows Firewall and this time the upgrade process went fine

 

550 5.7.1 RESOLVER.RST.AuthRequired; authentication required

When you Send to DL in Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010 , you recieve the error 550 5.7.1 RESOLVER.RST.AuthRequired; authentication required

Reason:
By default Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010 requires that a sender be authenticated before being able to successfully send to a distribution list. Consequently external users are unable to send emails to it.

Solution:
1- From the properties of the distribution list in Exchange AD: Exchange General tab, Un-tick From authenticated users only
2- From the properties of the distribution list in Exchange Management Console: Mail-flow settings tab, Message Delivery Restrictions, un-tick Require that all senders are authenticated.
