[Quick Fix] ExchangeGUID Does Not Correctly Update (2021)

The strategies in this post help you to solve the ExchangeGUID does not correctly update issue.

I had a bad day where in the user account licensed with Exchange Online Plan 2 but no mailbox is provisioned in cloud and on-premises assocuated as a remote user mailbox.

I have updated the ExchangeGUID of the affected mailbox in on-premises to null (00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000) to see how it works. Sadly, the steps didn’t work and the ExchangeGUID in on-premises keep on changing on it’s own for some reason. Take a look at the screenshot for better understanding.

As you can see the ExchangeGUID appears different initially so I updated into null but the changes did not update without my action. I thought to try the same steps after 24 hours but no luck. Finally, I decided to try the ADAC (Active Directory Administrative Center) to update them.

  • Go to “Active Directory Administrative Center
  • Select “Global Search
  • Search the affected user account
  • Click “Properties” on the right
  • Select “Extensions” on the left
  • Select “Attribute Editor

  • Select “msExchMailboxGuid

Once this is done, check the status in via Powershell to make sure this is working.
