Exchange Y2K22

You’re not alone if you awoke on January 1st, 2022, to find your work email inbox abnormally empty. According to a report by Bleeping Computer, Microsoft rang in the New Year with a flaw that prohibits Exchange servers from delivering emails, but thankfully, a remedy has now been published.

Further Details

In its blog post, Microsoft details the problem’s remedy, which requires administrators to either manually execute the change or use an automated script. The document also includes a comprehensive FAQ, indicating that administrators would need “some time” to apply the remedy. It may take some time for the messages to reach their target recipients’ inboxes, depending on how many emails are delayed in the queue.

At 12 a.m. on January 1st, problems began to appear, prompting one Exchange administrator on Reddit to raise the matter. Administrators began seeing problem messages in the Exchange Server’s Event Log, such as “The FIP-FS Scan Process failed startup,” according to Bleeping Computer. 0x8004005 is the error code. “Unspecified Error” or “Error Code: 0x80004005” are examples of error messages. Error description: “2201010001” cannot be converted to a long.”

During the time it took Microsoft to correct the problem, administrators were compelled to come up with different solutions, but now that Microsoft has provided an official patch, the Y2K22 crisis appears to be gone.
