In Microsoft Exchange Server 2016, you might notice there are many Watson reports for the StoragePermanentException error. Here is one example of the Watson reports:

Watson report about to be sent for process id: ProcessID, with parameters: E12IIS, VersionNumber, M.E.RpcClientAccess.Service, M.E.Data.Storage, M.E.D.S.Validation.Validate, M.E.D.Storage.StoragePermanentException, DumptidsetValue, VersionNumber. ErrorReportingEnabled: True


To fix this issue, install Cumulative Update 8 for Exchange Server 2016 or a later cumulative update for Exchange Server 2016.


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