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 but the user has a remote user mailbox in on-premises.
To resolve the issue, I 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 for some reason and the ExchangeGUID in on-premises keeps changing on it’s own. 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 tried the same steps after 24 hours but no luck. Finally, I decided to try the Active Directory Administrative Center (ADAC) 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“
- Click “Clear“
Once this is done, check the status in via Powershell to make sure this is working.
Let’s wait for a few hours for this changes to reflect in cloud. Once it is synced, remove the Exchange Online Plan 2 license and wait for 15 minutes and add it back. Guess what? Exchange GUID does not correctly update issue has resolved. Woohoo!!
