Microsoft Exchange Server by From Wikipedia

Just googling for an issue I heard about (aparently Exchange 2007 RTM might have some performance issues when you go over 500 users .. can’t be true but have the check it out)

Anyway found this on Wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Exchange_Server

Microsoft Exchange Server is a messaging and collaborative software product developed by Microsoft. It is part of the Microsoft Servers line of server products and is widely used by enterprises using Microsoft infrastructure solutions. Exchange’s major features consist of electronic mail, calendaring, contacts and tasks, and support for the mobile and web-based access to information, as well as supporting data storage.

MSExchangeTransport | Routing | 5003

This stumped me for a while.  Attempted an upgrade of VMWare Exchange 2007 Hub Transport Role.  It failed (See http://blogs.flaphead.dns2go.com/archive/2007/12/19/update-exchange-2007-service-pack-1.aspx)

Basically setup fails with: Process execution failed with exit code 3

.. and the setup log says:

[22/01/2008 15:44:08] [2] Beginning processing.
[22/01/2008 15:44:08] [2] Starting: C:WINDOWSsystem32regsvr32.exe arguments: /s “C:Program FilesMicrosoftExchange ServerbinExSMIME.dll”

[22/01/2008 15:44:09] [2] Ending processing.

I will come back to this one later.  Anyway, when I tried to start the MsExchangeTransport Service spat this out in the Application Event Log:

Event Type:     Error

Event Category: Routing
Event ID:       5003
Description:
Microsoft Exchange couldn’t load configuration information for routing. The process will block and retry the operation in 10 seconds.

Checked out the server using adsiedit and found for msExchHomeRoutingGroup.  Strange, I don’t touch it .. honest. 

Looked at another working server and copied the value and the MsExchangeTransport Service started … another weird one!
