Exchange Server 2010 SP3 UM Language Packs

by Arman Obosyan 15. February 2013 07:35

Unified Messaging (UM) language packs allow an Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3 (SP3) UM server to speak additional languages to callers and recognize other languages when callers use ASR or when voice messages are transcribed. UM language packs contain:

  • Pre-recorded prompts, for example "After the tone, please record your message. When you’ve finished recording, hang up, or press the # key for more options." in the language of the UM language pack.
  • Grammar files that are used by a UM server to lookup the names of given users in the directory in the language of the UM language pack.
  • Text to Speech (TTS) translation so that content (e-mail, calendar, contact information, etc.) can be read to callers in the language of the UM language pack.
  • Support for Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), which allows callers to interact with UM using the voice user interface (VUI) in the language of the UM language pack.
  • Support for Voice Mail Preview which allows users to read the transcript of voice mail messages in a specific language from within a supported e-mail client such as Outlook or Outlook Web Access.

Exchange Server DAG, New VHDX and Advanced format (4K) disk compatibility

by Arman Obosyan 19. January 2013 13:06

Недавно в рамках одного проекта мы мигрировали System Center c Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 на Hyper-V Server 2012 с System Center 2012 SP1, в данной системе как часть инфраструктуры присутствовал всеми нами любимый Exchange Server 2010 SP2 в Database Availability Group из выделанных виртуальных серверов.

В рамках миграции один из Mailbox серверов был мигрирован на новый хост который уже хостился на новом Hyper-V Server 2012 подключённый по SAN к 3PAR F400, чтоб не ждать несколько часов миграции пассивной копии базы данных мы удалили диск с копиями базы данных и мигрировали только диск с ОС, после миграции был создан новый диск для копии базы данных, после чего репликация начала вываливать ошибки не перестовая…

The log copier was unable to continue processing for database ‘MAILBOX_DB\SERVER’ because an error occurred on the target server: Continuous replication – block mode has been terminated. Error: the log file sector size does not match the current volume’s sector size (-546) [HResult: 0x80131500]. The copier will automatically retry after a short delay.

После небольшого траблшутинга, выяснилось что проблема была в разнице форматах VHD и VHDХ

Дело в том что новый формат VHDХ в Hyper-V Server 2012 использует 4K сектора в виртуальных дисках, в тоже время как старый 512, отсюда и ошибки в репликации. (Error: the log file sector size does not match the current volume’s sector size)

Просмотреть информацию о диске можно командой fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo g: где g: это имя диска

Пример диска VHDX, где “Bytes Per Sector” у нас 512 и“Bytes Per Physical Sector” равна 4096 что означает что мы имеем поддержку 4K Sector Disk with 512-byte Emulation

 

В тоже время в Native 4K уже “Bytes Per Sector” и “Bytes Per Physical Sector равны 4096, Данная тема уже выходит за рамки данного поста.

На последок добавлю что по возможности нужно избегать разных форматов VHD в вирутальной среде чтоб избежать вот таких маленьких непредвиденых ошибок.
