We administer the top Exchange server (a Hub-server) in an organization with
15 sites and 30 servers under this one. Through he (Exchange 5.5 + SP2) pass
successfully about 100.000 messages every day. But we find about 500 events
in Event Viewer. These events (ID 9215) say:
" sockets error XXXXXXconnect() call was detected. The MTA will attempt to
recover the sockets connection. Control block index: 11. [BASE IL TCP/IP
DRVR 8 262] (12) "
For us, everytime, XXXXXX=0.
We've read in KB about this message, and we've found in the article Q170056
"In the 9215 error, the sockets XXXXXX message indicates that the
connection was refused".
The article points that the cause is "that the server that the messages are
destined for is either down or cannot be reached on the network".
We have checked for three steps (ping, net view, and net use) with the
- ping OK
-Net View error 53 (The network path was not found.)
-Net Use error 53 (The network path was not found.)
We are sure that our Host file are completed and free of errors for our
servers. We think, that via IP we shouldn't have any connectivity errors.
But, why appears these connection errors?
We have installed on this server TCP/IP & NETBEUI. The TCP/IP protocol is
configured to use DNS, WINS and LMHOST, and is not allowed to DNS translate
Is Exchange trying to connect via NETBEUI?
Please, somebody can helps us?
Thanks in advance.
