    Hi, @Bas Kleian

    Did you install the update by double-clicking the update file(run it not as administrator)?
    If so, it may be the known issue introduced in the link:
    Description of the security update for Microsoft Exchange Server 2019, 2016, and 2013: March 2, 2021 (KB5000871)

    Besides editing the values in BinSearchFolders, have you run the UpdateCas.ps1 script under the "\Exchange Server\V15\bin" folder?
