LyncSCOM bug

Just a quick note. We have recently been receiving a lot of SCOM alerts like the following in our Lync 2013 environment:

Resolution State: New

Alert Name: [LYNC] Total number of Storage Service EWS Autodiscovery errors.

Perf Object Name:

Perf Counter Name: LYSS – Total number of Storage Service EWS Autodiscovery errors.

Perf Counter Value: 186

Error Threshold: 25

Warning Threshold: 1

Consecutive Samples Repeat Count: 2


Please see the ‘Product Knowledge’ and the ‘Alert Context’ tab on Alert Properties view for more information.


[end of alert description]

These seemed odd because, though I am not at all involved in Exchange, our Exchange guys are sharp and would have caught a misconfigured autodiscover record.

Further, we do not do any archiving so why is a Lync Front End even bothering to check for EWS?

So I checked with my contact at Microsoft and he informed me that this is a bug and we should disable the alert. I don’t know (and don’t care!) if it is a Lync or SCOM error.

  1. Is same as Event ID 32054 on the FE’s? If so these are the mobile clients, anyhow this is fixed in the Jan 2014 server udpate (CU4) see KB 2912341

    CU4 did not fix the EWS alerts or the 32054 events for us so the rule got disabled.
