    Does anyone know why my I keep getting an error when trying to connect to my IM server? Keep saying service is temp unavailable, try back later.

    More info is needed

    You need to supply more info, otherwise it'll be a guesswork, and we don't want to do that, do we?

      More info

      I have created my virtual server for IM in Exchange. I am using my default web site and it is running, also my w3 service is running. I have enabled IM in AD for my users and AD does fiind the IM server by name. Exchange does work for email. I have installed the latest IM client on my Wkstn.
      Hope this helps.

        Did it ever work? What SP? Did you follow the exact steps outlined here?

          I only installed it yesterday and has not worked. I have followed your instructions to a tee. I have even deleted my Vserver for IM and restarted the whole thing. The message I get is a service is not available. Is there a service just for IM?

            The obvious question is

            DID YOU INSTALL THE DAMN IM SERVICE man? Or do you expect it to work like a magic or what?

            Anyway, if you did install it try looking for the IM virtual server in E2K ESM.
