IMF Tune - Bringing Back the Exchange Connection Filter
Install-AntiSpamAgents Fails in Exchange 2016 CU7
We have identified a problem when installing the Exchange 2016 built-in anti-spam agents. This concerns Exchange 2016 Cumulative Update 7 released last September. The problem was not present in earlier Exchange 2016 releases.
Running Install-AntiSpamAgents.ps1 to install the Exchange Content Filter and other spam filters fails, returning a long sequence of errors starting with:
Following this, none of the Exchange anti-spam agents are installed.
IMF Tune requires the Exchange Content Filter to be installed and running. Thus this problem could block us from installing IMF Tune on Exchange 2016 Mailbox servers.
This problem can be avoided by using a copy of Install-AntiSpamAgents.ps1 from earlier Exchange 2016 releases (predating CU7). All we need is to replace the installation script with the older script under:
We can now run the older Install-AntiSpamAgents.ps1 and successfully install the agents. Thus satisfying the IMF Tune dependency on the Exchange Content Filter.
