  • Event ID 5189 Microsoft-Windows-WAS

    I am receiving the following on an Exchange Server 2013 CU2 installation running in Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008 R2. The error was intermittent at the start and now appears twice daily since last October. The server appears to be running fine, but the error is annoying, and we would like to get rid of it. Any ideas? Thank you.

    CU2 is no longer supported.
    You need to be either on CU or SP1 to be supported.
    I would upgrade the server first.
