  • IIS Metabase - Exchange 2003 Error

    Hi,

    I've been looking into some problems with emails within my org and as part of this I checked the IIS metabase. It doesn't appear corrupted on any of the front end servers however I do get one message when I run:
    "cscript adsutil.vbs enum_all"

    Code:
    [/SmtpSvc/1/Domain/[80.69.8.190],[217.79.216.190]]
     
    The path requested could not be found.
    ErrNumber: -2147024893 (0x80070003)
    Error Trying To ENUM the Object (GetObject Failed): SmtpSvc/1/Domain/[80.11.8.110],[211.11.216.110]
    This is my primary smtp connector out to two relays. I can't find anything relevant on google at all. Microsoft has a similar article (LINK) but the error is different.

    Does anyone have any thoughts?
    cheers
    Andy

    Re: IIS Metabase Error on Exchange 2003 Servers

    Hi Andy,

    is it Exchange 2003 Server? Use this tool www.exbpa.com and run it against the effected server.

    Let me know if it resolves the issue other wise you would need to run ExMetaBaseChecker and perfrom Rest SMTPSVC and RESVC

      Hi V-2nas.

      Thanks for the reply. The exbpa has been run many times and aside from some known issues elsewhere it doesn't mention the metabase.
      I haven't heard of that checker before though, I will download it and have a look.
      cheers

        Hi Andy,

        Do you have smart host set on the Default SMTP Virtual Server?

        I will try to find a link to that tool for you but i don't commit i will try.

        Thank you

          Hi,
          I do have a smarthost and that formed part of the "fix". By changing this to something different and then back again it now passes through cleanly.
          I downloaded the checker and it went through ok as well so I think I can let this one rest.

          Many thanks for your help by the way.
          cheers

            Hi,

            if you need to setup a smart host. Then it's better to use smtp connector smart host option.

              Not entirely sure what you mean by that?
              The SMTP connector isn't set to DNS. At that point it had the IP of the next hop.
