  • Unable to change FQDN on receive connector

    I am currently running through the following guide

    http://www.msexchange.org/articles_t...rver-2007.html

    When I come to change the existing entry from the server name and local domain name to the external mx record name, it comes up with the following error.

    The auth mechanism must have the connector set to either the FQDN of the transport server, the netbios name or null

    how can I change this or had this changed since SP1?

    Thanks

    That article is out of date. Anything on msexchange.org has to be treated with caution as they don't update the content frequently, if at all. If it was written before the service pack then there is a good chance it will have changed.

    The behaviour was changed in SP1 to what you are seeing now.

      Thanks Simon, is there any way to set it to the external name or will leaving it as its currently set cause any issues?

      Thanks

        Doesn't matter whether it cause problems or not, you can't set it to an external name. Receive connector is only for inbound email so will not cause issues. Send Connector it would, but not for inbound email.
