Symptoms

When you enable Global Journaling in Microsoft Exchange Server 2013, you notice that emails from the Managed Availability health monitoring probe are journaled.

Cause

This behavior is by design. It is included as a health-monitoring feature in the release version of Exchange Server 2013 and in Exchange Server 2013 Cumulative Update 1 (CU1), and in Exchange Server 2013 Cumulative Update 2 (CU2).

Workaround

To work around this behavior, use one of the following methods to disable the probe messages:

Method 1: Create a journal rule

To work around this issue, create a journal rule to disable probe messages. You can create a journal rule for individual recipients or a distribution group. The following is an example of a cmdlet that creates a journal rule for an individual recipient:

New-JournalRule -Name "User A journal" -journalemailaddress journal@contoso.com (mailto:journal@contoso.com) -Scope Global -Recipient usera@contoso.com (mailto:usera@contoso.com) -Enabled $true

You can also create a journal rule for a distribution group. The following is an example of a journal rule for a distribution group. After you create the journal rule, all messages that are sent to or sent by a member of the "Journal User" distribution group are journaled:

New-JournalRule -Name "Journal Users" -journalemailaddress journal@contoso.com (mailto:journal@contoso.com) -Scope Global -Recipient journalusers@contoso.com (mailto:journalusers@contoso.com) -Enabled $true

Method 2: Use a global override

To work around this issue, use a global override to disable the probes that are generating the email messages. To do this, follow these steps:

Note: If you disable Global Monitoring, some server monitoring applications may not correctly monitor transport server components.
  1. In the Exchange Management Shell, run the following commands:
    Add-GlobalMonitoringOverride -Identity "FrontendTransport\OnPremisesSmtpClientSubmission" -PropertyName Enabled -PropertyValue 0 -ApplyVersion "15.0.620.29" -ItemType Probe
    Add-GlobalMonitoringOverride -Identity "MailboxTransport\Mapi.Submit.Probe" -PropertyName Enabled -PropertyValue 0 -ApplyVersion "15.0.620.29" -ItemType Probe
    Add-GlobalMonitoringOverride -Identity "FrontendTransport\OnPremisesInboundProxy" -PropertyName Enabled -PropertyValue 0 -ApplyVersion "15.0.620.29" -ItemType Probe
    Note These commands are for Exchange Server 2013 CU1 only. If you are running a different build of Exchange 2013, you can determine the version and build information by running the following command:
    Get-ExchangeServer <ServerName> |fl name,*yver*
    The ApplyVersion number is a combination of the version and build. (For example, for Exchange Server 2013 CU1, the version is 15.0, the build is 620.29, and the ApplyVersion number is 15.0.620.29.)
  2. Restart the Microsoft Exchange Diagnostics service and the Microsoft Exchange Health Manager service on all Exchange Server 2013 servers.

    Note If you are running the Client Access server role and the Mailbox server role on separate servers, you must restart the services that are mentioned here on both roles.
