GAL Sync: extension-unexpected-attribute-value

    Question

  • After running an import of a few thousand users, I see a handful of extension-unexpected-attribute-value errors.

    The stack trace complains about a "Missing Unique SMTP proxy" (see below).  I've spent some time querying for any other objects that might have overlapping proxyAddresses attribute values with this user, but haven't found any.

    Any thoughts?

  • As mentioned in my other response, the GAL sync MA is a pre-configured ADMA.

    UnexpectedDataException” is a custom exception bubbled up by “Private Sub IAFTargetAddressForGroup”.

     

    The best thing to do, is to debug “FindMatchedDomainSuffix” for one of the objects that are causing the exception to be thrown and to check what the reason for this exception is in the source CDS…

     

     

    Cheers,

  • Ok, thanks Markus - I'll give that a go.

  • Just a quick follow-up.  I found the problem.  The user objects that generated the errors did not have an SMTP proxy address that corresponded to the SMTP suffix configured in the MA.
