If I look in my active directory sites and services I find 2 SMTP 
connections. Shouldn’t this be just one (I had 2 exchange servers during the 
migration, but it’s only one now).

I have already tried the following;

 Microsoft Exchange Transport
 Failed in reading Connector's DS InfoProcess Id: <id>Process location: 
<file name>ConnectorDN: <connector name>Hr:<value>Attribute:[<value>]
This event can occur when the Exchange 2000 Server is unable to read the 
specified attribute (for example, msExchTargetBridgeheadServersDN) from 
Active Directory. There could be several causes for this problem, such as the 

An old server that has been decommissioned is still in Active Directory. 
The domain controller/global catalog that Exchange 2000 Server is 
communicating with may have obsolete information due to domain controller 
replication issues. 
User Action
Check Active Directory and ensure that any non-existent servers are removed. 
Verify the domain controller replication and make sure that the domain 
controller that is being used by this Exchange 2000 server has valid 

As well as;

Running dcdiag all tests pass except:


Starting test: frsevent

    There are warning or error events within the last 24 hours after the

    SYSVOL has been shared.  Failing SYSVOL replication problems may cause

    Group Policy problems.


(please give me a hint how to solve this). I don’t think this is in relation 
to the error though.


The error repeats itself in the error log every hour….

(it drives me nuts’ I’ve spent 3 full days on it now). I removed one of the 
connections and that crashed my smtp. Reinstalled smtp and reinstalled 
exchange. Still no luck.

Simultaneous socket connections. Is there a limit?
My client wants me to write an application that maintains 30 or 40 simultaneous socket connections to different hardware devices. For each device the throughput requirements are very small since only some small packets are sent occasionally at random intervals.

server connect
When I first start up Outlook 2003, it contacts the mail server and everything is hunky-doory. However, when attempting to next access the mail account by the send/receive access or in background, it indicates that it cannot locate the server and gives me error (0x80004210A). This error number is not consistent other than for the 0x800 portion. The location does not change, so how can it find it initially, and not later on? I'm confused. What type of mail server? POP3, IMAP, Exchange, HTTP, Other...? Does the same happen when you disable your firewall and/or virusscanner (integra...
