Assume that you create an In-Place eDiscovery search in Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 Exchange Admin Center (EAC). You select the Copy Search Results option for the search, and then you select the Include Unsearchable Items check box to copy the search results. In this situation, the search fails, and you receive the following error message:

Errors: Failed exporting item id: from source id: SMTP_Address with error: [FailedToGetUnsearchableItems] Export failed with error type: 'FailedToGetUnsearchableItems'. Details: There is an error in the XML document (Number).


This issue occurs because the Exchange server returns a null property to the client. However, the property should not be null on the client.


To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:

2892464 Description of Cumulative Update 3 for Exchange Server 2013


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
