Error Property InvalidDatabaseCopiesAllowed

Share this:

In some scenarios when creating a Mailbox Database the error below may appear. This Tutorial was based on Exchange Server 2013 Service Pack 1 (CU4).

Property InvalidDatabaseCopiesAllowed can’t be set on this object because it requires the object to have version 0.1014.0.100.0) or later. The object’s current version is 0.1 (8.0.535.0).

Solution


I got this error when I was migrating from an Exchange Server 2007 to Exchange Server 2013 and the customer requested to keep the same name for the new databases that would be created in the new server.

During the creation of the first one the image below was displayed (the image is in Portuguese but the translation can be found at the beginning of this article), and the solution is to avoid having the same database name within the same exchange organization.

Conclusion


This error is a known-issue and the solution is to make sure that Mailbox Database name is unique within the Exchange Organization.
