Solution:

Looking in the path I have wrote above “MicrosoftExchange ServerV15ClientAccessecpDDI” and opening the file that I have mentioned “RemoteDomains.xaml” you can clearly see there are incorrect format that have been duplicated 3 times.

To make sure that this was the cause, I have another server with CU8 on it so I went and checked the same file which was in the same location to find the result different.

This is the server that works in another environment and doesn’t have any issue.

So, the solution was to remove the two duplicates and correct the format of the variable line… I corrected the first line that includes

<Variable DataObjectName=”RemoteDomain” Name=”TargetDeliveryDomain” Type=”{x:Type s:Boolean}” />

And deleted the other two identical lines.. then I saved the file and closed notepad.

Next: Open IIS on the same server and go to “Application Pools” right click on the affected pools and Recycle them.. You don’t need to reset IIS as the fix should work right away.

Recycle ECP Pool

After recycling checking if the pool is reporting started or not…

Next I open ECP and it works without an issue

Hope this helps Winking smile
