Exchange certificate expiry event 12018 not logging.


  • Hi All,

    We have  Exchange 2013 CU9 installed on Windows server 2012 R2 Standard. GoDaddy certificate installed on this server is about to expire in next 4 days but there is no event logging for this certificate expiry. When I check the other Exchange 2013 servers I found MSExchangeTransport event 12018 gets logged while a certificate is about to expire. any suggestions.

  • Hi,

    For this problem, firstly, please check MSExchangeTransport logging settings by the cmdlets below:

    Get-EventLogLevel –Identity MSExchangeTransport\logging

    Then compare the results with other normal Exchange Server log settings if their level are same.

  • Thank you for the suggestion. I have checked the logging settings as well as the registry settings for the MSExchangetransport and found no difference which can cause this issue.

    Anything else you want me to check.
