This error message can occur because of several causes that lead to the user having 40 outstanding requests with the server. Our analysis of the issue points to the pending connection requests between Skype for Business and Exchange Servers being one of the causes. You can further check for EventID: 32019 in the Application event logs, and run the Test-CsExStorageConnectivity synthetic transition to confirm that the connectivity exists between Skype for Business and Exchange Servers.

If this issue continues to occur after you apply the update, we encourage you to contact Microsoft support, and examine the output of Test-CsExStorageConnectivity synthetic transition and Debug-CsStorageServiceFailures synthetic transition for further troubleshooting on this issue.
