Message flow between Sites (Mixed Mode)

Message flow between Sites (Mixed Mode)

Post by Clint Klecia » Thu, 03 Jul 2003 03:03:45



Question:

If a 5.5 server is trying to send a message to a 5.5
server located in another site and both a Routing Group
Connector and a Site Connector is available, will the
message go to via the Site Connector or the Routing Group
Connector.

The Routing Group Connector is using Exchange 2000
servers on both ends and the Site Connector is using
Exchange 5.5 servers on both ends.

thanks

Hi,

That depends on the cost configured on the connectors. If both are installed
with the default values it would probably use the ex5.5 connectors because
they are closest (or am I mistaken here).

cost would be the same,,,,not sure what you mean by
closest.  I am trying to avoid the hit of a 55 message
getting converted to SMTP to go over a RGC.

thanks

Hi,

I meant that if the 5.5 connector is on the server from which you want to
send mail the cost would normally be 1. The cost of the RCG might also be 1
but you have to add 1 as the hop from the 5.5 server to the 2000 server  and
then another 2000 to 5.5 hop in the remote end = 3.

Anyway you should be able to force sending mails over the connectors you
select by playing with the cost factor on the connectors.

1. Mail not flowing in mixed site

I added the first Exchange 2000 server to our Org... The ADC is working
properly... I see new mailboxes that are added to 5.5 as well as 2000.

The problem I'm having is that when I try to send a message from a mailbox
on the Exch 5.5 server to a mailbox on the Exch 2000 server I get the
following error.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Subject: test
Sent: 11/7/01 3:53 PM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

Andrew Fletcher on 11/7/01 3:53 PM
The recipient name is not recognized
The MTS-ID of the original message is: c=US;a=
;p=ORG;l=SERVER-011107205237Z-69415
MSEXCH:MSExchangeMTA:CORPEXCH:ISNT1
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I see the Exch 2000 maibox in my Exch 5.5 GAL... It's almost like the link
between the two Exchange server is not running... Again, this is a Mixed
site 2000 and 5.5 and the connection should be seamless. Right?

Help! <grin>

Thanks,

Kevin Fletcher
