Exchange Managment Console Crashing


  • Exchange server 2010 SP3, server 2008 R2. Exchange Management Console crashing under Organization Configuration/mailbox.

    This is the only that that is crashing, currently attempting to run Microsoft Exchange Best Practices Analyzer.  I am unable to find any events in the event log that has anything to do with the snap ins. 

    The error is "Microsoft Management Console has stopped working.  A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.

    I appreciate any ideas on where to start looking.

  • Hi

    What Rollup are you on?

    If you run the admin tools from another server does the same happen?

    Have you tried a simple reboot to see if that resolves it? perhaps updates have applied causing the crash.

  • All recent updates have been uninstalled.  Tried typing mmc.exe and adding the exchange snap in it fails as well.

  • Is that including dotnet updates? Did this start happening as soon as the updates were uninstalled?

  • Hi,

    Please check the event log to see if any related events, if exist, please post out in detail.

    It's also recommended to check the IIS log to see if any errors.

    Please refer to the following blog: 

    Hope it helps.
