Exchange 2010: The WS-Management Service Cannot Process The Request...

PROBLEM: The WS-Management service cannot process the request. The user load quota of 1000 requests per 2 seconds has been exceeded. Send future requests at a slower rate or raise the quota for this user. The next request from this user will not be approved for at least XX milliseconds.

This can happen if a certificate on Exchange expires (SSL or UCC) and the IIS service has not been restarted since.

All you need to do is open a command prompt (Run as Administrator if using UAC) and the type in IISRESET.  Press ENTER and wait.

Now you should be able to login to the Exchange 2010 EMC with no issues.

Really simple fix.

Good luck!

Exchange 2013 Installation Step-by-Step Cheat Sheet

Ok so I've setup a new Exchange 2013 server for a customer and got it installed with no errors.  These instructions pertain to installation on Windows Server 2012/2012R2.

I have condensed it down to make sense.  We all know TechNet instructions look like they were written by a lawyer.

I hope this helps with your install.  Good luck.

1. Install all OS updates
2. Install all the following prereqs
- .NET Framework (already on Server 2012R2).  Just use the server manager to install this as a Feature.

- Remote Tools Admin Pack ( Install-WindowsFeature RSAT-ADDS )

- Windows Components ( Install-WindowsFeature AS-HTTP-Activation, Desktop-Experience, NET-Framework-45-Features, RPC-over-HTTP-proxy, RSAT-Clustering, RSAT-Clustering-CmdInterface, RSAT-Clustering-Mgmt, RSAT-Clustering-PowerShell, Web-Mgmt-Console, WAS-Process-Model, Web-Asp-Net45, Web-Basic-Auth, Web-Client-Auth, Web-Digest-Auth, Web-Dir-Browsing, Web-Dyn-Compression, Web-Http-Errors, Web-Http-Logging, Web-Http-Redirect, Web-Http-Tracing, Web-ISAPI-Ext, Web-ISAPI-Filter, Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console, Web-Metabase, Web-Mgmt-Console, Web-Mgmt-Service, Web-Net-Ext45, Web-Request-Monitor, Web-Server, Web-Stat-Compression, Web-Static-Content, Web-Windows-Auth, Web-WMI, Windows-Identity-Foundation )

3. Extend the AD schema.  Use Command Prompt to drive letter with Exchange ( setup.exe /PrepareSchema /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms ).  When setup completes allow some time for AD replication to complete across all DCs.

4. Prepare AD for Exchange.  Use Command Prompt to drive letter with Exchange ( Setup.exe /PrepareAD /OrganizationName:"" /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms )

5.  Prepare all domains for Exchange 2013.  Use Command Prompt to drive letter with Exchange ( Setup.exe /PrepareAllDomains /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms )

6.  Install Office 2010 Filter Packs - Version 2.0 

7.  Install Office 2010 Filter Packs - Version 2.0 SP1 

8. Run setup.exe.  Follow prompts and allow wizard to complete install.

That's pretty much all there is to it to get it installed. 

If you want more information on detailed installation, configuration after install, and maintaining then I highly recommend you read Mastering Microsoft Exchange Server 2013.  I did and it has been a tremendous reference point for me now that Exchange 2013 deployments are becoming more common for me.

Enjoy the read and good luck!
