Sometimes Microsoft Exchange 2010 Management console get stuck and tries to connect to the wrong server instead of the one you are logged on to.
If it is only connecting to the wrong server (but connecting) you can simply right click on "Microsoft Exchange On-Premises (ServerName)" properties and select the server you want to connect to.
However things get more complicated if the server it is trying to connect to no longer exists or is orphaned. In that case you cannot right-click properties and this will yield your management console totally useless
To fix this follow the below steps
- Close EMC
- Browse to C:\users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\MMC\ and delete the file called "Exchange Management Console".
- Using your favorite registry editor go to HKCurrentUser\Software\Microsoft\Exchangeserver\v14\AdminTools\ and delete the value NodeStructureSettings
- Now run Exchange Management Console again and your problem should be fixed

a new update package has been released that include a hotfix for the mobility service
Taken from Microsoft KB2664650
Microsoft push notification messages are not delivered to Lync mobile IOS and WP7 clients, when URL filtering is configured on Lync 2010 Edge Servers or office communication 2007 R2 Access Edge Server, apparently this is caused by:
with the release of the new Lync 2010 mobility service, Microsoft also has released what is called push notification service, many administrators like myself were surprised about this after reading Microsoft official Mobility guide and I bet many of them still doesn’t have a clear idea about how the push notification service works, and if is it required to be configured or not.
what is this Service used for ?
The Service is a cloud-based service located in the Lync online Data Center, it is used to send notifications to Lync mobile clients running on windows phone 7 and IOS based systems.
The push notification Service push notifications to mobile clients n the form of badges, icons, or alerts, even if the mobile application was inactive. Push notifications notify a user of events such as a new or missed IM invitation, missed calls, and voice mail.
