Failed to create a new named property for database Event ID:9667

Filed under: General — telnet25 @ 4:18 am

I bumped into another interesting issue during migration Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007. Mail from E210 to E03 was miserably failing with fallowing  bounce backs.


On the Exchange 2003 application logs

Event Type:    Error
Event Source:    MSExchangeIS
Event Category:    General
Event ID:    9667
Date:        7/22/2010
Time:        11:05:09 PM
User:        N/A
Computer:    EBE
Failed to create a new named property for database "First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (EBE)" because the number of named properties reached the quota limit (8192).
User attempting to create the named property: "SYSTEM"
Named property GUID: 00020386-0000-0000-c000-000000000046
Named property name/id: "X-LinkedIn-fbl"



Quick Fix

  • Open Regedit on the Exchange 2003 server & Drill down to
  • CurrentControlSet
  • Service
  • Server Name

Click on the Private and locate “NonMAPI Named Props Quota” Change the value ***DECIMAL** to ***16394*** as shown below.


Save and exit from register.
