Has anyone been able to provision mailbox size limits over 2GB? I've followed instructions from MSKB 555559 to increase the limits but still get this error when trying to change mailbox plans to anything over the default 2GB max limit.
I also get an error in Exchange System manager when trying to save the properties on the limits page of the mailbox store. The value for 'Issue warning at (KB) is not valid'. Specifiy a value between 0 and 2091751.

I'm able to do this. :-)
It is not possible by using regular HMC/MPS plans and Exchange resource manager because of the limitations of integer data type used inside MPS. Technically, Exchange mailbox size limit can be as big as 2 Tb. So, to provision big mailboxes, I use fake plan
with small mailbox size and "manually" assign values to mDBStorageQuota, mdbOverQuotaLimit, and mDBOverHardQuotaLimit properties of user object for plan holders.
Another drawback of using Exchange resource manager. Information store size couldn't be bigger than 2Tb (in resource manager) because of the same limit of integer data type. As a result, you can't provision more than 1000 of 2 GB mailboxes per store.

Could You please be more detailed how you fix this?

Thanx for the link
But the problem is that even if I set a plan with a 3GB limit it wouldn't affect the mailbox.
I can only make it work with 2Gb maximum.....
