Exchange 2013 – Event ID 25006 – ‘The path to the Queue Quota component log has not been set’

KB ID 0000910 Dtd 30/01/14

Problem

Freshly installed Exchange 2013 Server (was migrated from Exchange 2007) and it threw out this error.

Event ID 25006

Log Name: Application
Source: MSExchangeTransport
Event ID: 25006
Task Category: Configuration
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: PNL-Exchange.petenetlive.net
Description:
The path to the Queue Quota component log has not been set. Queue Quota component log will not be written.

Solution

1. A quick internet search told me to check what had been set with the following commands,

Get-TransportServer |
fl Queue*

OR

Get-TransportService |
fl Queue*

QueueQuotaLogPath Blank

2. Above we can see three things, Get-TransportServer is a command that is going to be depreciated, there is NOTHING set for the QueueQuotaLogPath, and QueueQuotaLogEnabled is set to true (it’s turned on). Even if we use the newer syntax (below) the result is the same.

No Exchange Queue Quota

3. OK, first I created a folder on the Exchange server and tried to manually set the log path. Then I tried to set QueueQuotaLogEnabled to ‘False’ to see if that cured the problem. It would not let me do either.

A Parameter cannot be found

Some more searching led me to find that these properties can not be changed (at the moment anyway), as they are both flagged as ‘This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use’.

Table Reference
WlmLogPath Optional This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.
QueueQuotaLogEnabled Optional This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.
QueueQuotaLogMaxAge Optional This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.
QueueQuotaLogMaxDirectorySize Optional This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.
QueueQuotaLogMaxFileSize Optional This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.
QueueQuotaLogPath Optional This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

So, in typical Microsoft fashion, it looks like we will have to put up with this error, until they make those parameters editable. If that changes, send me an email (link below).
