There’s a workaround to use until such time as the final fix is deployed.

Hi All,

This issue might occur when you have O365/AAD enabled on the server. The product team is investigating it, in the mean time, the following workaround might help mitigate this issue:

1. On the server, go to folder %programfiles%\Windows Server\Bin\FeatureDefinitions\Microsoft PwdSync\

2. Make a copy of file Definition.xml for backup

3. Edit the original Definition.xml (if you don’t have permission, copy the file out, edit it and put it back in the folder):

Comment out the following two sections:

<!–

<HealthDefinition Name=”PasswordSyncInvalidPassword”

</HealthDefinition>

<HealthDefinition Name=”PasswordSyncOtherFailure”             …

</HealthDefinition>

–>

4. Restart WseEmailSvc windows service.

Please let me know whether it helps nor not.

Thanks,
