Troubleshooting OWA.Protocol.Dep Health Set

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Project Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2014-12-05

The OWA.Protocol.DEP health set monitors the overall health of instant messaging (IM) services in Outlook Web App that are integrated between Lync 2013 and Exchange 2013. For more information about enabling instant messaging in Outlook Web App, see Integrating Microsoft Lync Server 2013 and Microsoft Outlook Web App 2013.

If you receive an alert that indicates that the OWA.Protocol.DEP health set is unhealthy, this indicates an issue that may prevent instant messaging from working correctly in Outlook Web App.

The OWA.Protocol.DEP service is monitored using the following probes and monitors.

 

Probe Health Set Associated Monitors

none (notification or check)

OWA.Protocol.DEP

OwaIMInitializationFailedMonitor

none (notification or check)

OWA.Protocol.DEP

WacDiscoveryFailureEventMonitor

For more information about probes and monitors, see Server health and performance.

It's possible that the service recovered after it issued the alert. Therefore, when you receive an alert that specifies that the OWA.Protocol.DEP health set is unhealthy, first verify that the issue still exists. If the issue does exist, perform the appropriate recovery actions outlined in the following sections.

This error indicates a required registry key is missing on the Mailbox server. This registry key should have been configured when the Microsoft Unified Communications Managed API (UCMA) 4.0 was installed on the server. The missing registry key is:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\MSExchange OWA\InstantMessaging

This key should contain an ImplementationDLLPath string that points to the Microsoft.Rtc.Internal.Ucweb DLL. The default location is C:\Program Files\Microsoft UCMA 4.0\Runtime\SSP\Microsoft.Rtc.Internal.Ucweb.dll.

To fix this issue, reinstall UCMA 4.0 or manually create the registry key. You can download UCMA 4.0 here: Unified Communications Managed API 4.0 Runtime.

This error indicates the Microsoft.Rtc.Internal.Ucweb DLL file is missing on the Mailbox server. This file should have been installed when UCMA 4.0 was installed on the server. The default location is C:\Program Files\Microsoft UCMA 4.0\Runtime\SSP.

To fix this issue, reinstall UCMA 4.0. For more information, see Unified Communications Managed API 4.0 Runtime.

This error indicates the Lync 2013 server isn't defined in the Outlook Web App application configuration (web.config) file on the Mailbox server. This web.config file is located at %ExchangeInstallPath%ClientAccess\Owa, and should contain a key named IMServerName that specifies the FQDN of the Lync 2013 server. To fix this issue, follow these steps:

  1. In a Command prompt window, open the Outlook Web App web.config file in Notepad by running the following command:

    Notepad %ExchangeInstallPath%ClientAccess\Owa\web.config
    
  2. Search for a key named IMServerName. If it's found, verify the FQDN of the Lync 2013 server. If the key is not found, add it by performing the following steps.

    1. Find the tag named <appSection>.

    2. In the <appSection> node, add the following line:

      <add key="IMServerName" value="Lync Server FQDN" />
      

      For example:

      <add key="IMServerName" value="lync01.contoso.com" />
      
    3. To apply the changes in Outlook Web App, run the following command:

      %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe recycle apppool /apppool.name:"MSExchangeOWAAppPool"
      

This error indicates the certificate that's used to integrate Lync 2013 and Outlook Web App isn't defined in the Outlook Web App application configuration (web.config) file on the Mailbox server. This web.config file is located at %ExchangeInstallPath%ClientAccess\Owa, and should contain a key named IMCertificateThumbprint that specifies the certificate's thumbprint (hash).

You can get the certificate's thumbprint value by using the Get-ExchangeCertificate cmdlet, or in the Exchange admin center (EAC) at Servers > Certificates.

To fix this issue, follow these steps:

  1. In a Command prompt window, open the Outlook Web App web.config file in Notepad by running the following command:

    Notepad %ExchangeInstallPath%ClientAccess\Owa\web.config
    
  2. Search for a key named IMCertificateThumbprint. If it's found, verify the thumbprint value is correct. If the key is not found, add it by performing the following steps:

    1. Find the tag named <appSection>.

    2. In the <appSection> node, add the following line:

      <add key="IMCertificateThumbprint" value="thumbprint"/>
      

      For example:

      <add key="IMCertificateThumbprint" value="35CB4C441D55506C88E59B7946B567A4F45B3B5C" />
      
    3. To apply the changes in Outlook Web App, run the following command:

      %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe recycle apppool /apppool.name:"MSExchangeOWAAppPool"
      

This error indicates the certificate that's used to integrate Lync 2013 and Outlook Web App isn't found on the Mailbox server. This certificate must be installed on the Mailbox server and the Lync 2013 server, and must be trusted by both servers. For more information about the certificate requirements, see the Enabling Instant Messaging on Outlook Web App section in Integrating Microsoft Lync Server 2013 and Microsoft Outlook Web App 2013.

You can match he thumbprint value in the error to the certificate by using the Get-ExchangeCertificate cmdlet, or in the Exchange admin center (EAC) at Servers > Certificates.

This error indicates the certificate that's used to integrate Lync 2013 and Outlook Web App has expired. To resolve this error, you need to renew the certificate.

You can match he thumbprint value in the error to the certificate by using the Get-ExchangeCertificate cmdlet, or in the Exchange admin center (EAC) at Servers > Certificates.

This error indicates the certificate that's used to integrate Lync 2013 and Outlook Web App has invalid dates. To resolve this error, you need to configure a new certificate, and you need to add the new thumbprint value in the IMCertificateThumbprint key in %ExchangeInstallPath%ClientAccess\Owa\web.config . For more information about the certificate requirements, see the Enabling Instant Messaging on Outlook Web App section in Integrating Microsoft Lync Server 2013 and Microsoft Outlook Web App 2013.

This error indicates the certificate that's used to integrate Lync 2013 and Outlook Web App does not have a private key. To resolve this error, you need to configure a new certificate that has a private key, and you need to add the new thumbprint value in the IMCertificateThumbprint key in %ExchangeInstallPath%ClientAccess\Owa\web.config . For more information about the certificate requirements, see the Enabling Instant Messaging on Outlook Web App section in Integrating Microsoft Lync Server 2013 and Microsoft Outlook Web App 2013.
