XFOR: Exchange Connector for Lotus Notes Directory Synchronization Process Truncates Last Name

Article ID: 249884

Article Last Modified on 10/26/2006


  • Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 Service Pack 3

This article was previously published under Q249884


Microsoft Exchange Connector for Lotus Notes directory synchronization (dirsync) process from Exchange Server to Lotus Notes may truncate the last character in the Last Name field for an Exchange Server recipient. This occurs for Exchange Server recipients in the Notes directory if the rule that maps the last name uses the NAMEL function.


This issue can occur as a result of a logical bug in the NAMEL function.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Exchange Server 5.5. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Exchange Server version 5.5 Service Pack 3. This problem was first corrected in Exchange Server 5.5 Service Pack 4.
