I'm having a problem replicating public folders between two Exchange 2003 servers.
Server A (our original server) is hosted on Windows Small Business Server 2003.
Server B (our new server) is hosted on Windows Server 2003.
Both systems are fully patched with latest updates and service packs for both Windows and Exchange.
The problem I am having is that the Public Folders won't replicate in either direction. I have configured the replication, and can see the replication messages being transferred between the two servers using the Message Tracking Center. However, I notice that the last line for any replication message reads :
SMTP: Message Queued for Local Delivery
but the message does not actually get stored, suggesting the problem lies here.
I turned on various logging options, and I get the following error in my Application log (1 for each PF which is replicating)
Event Type: Error Event Source: MSExchangeTransport Event Category: SMTP Protocol Event ID: 7010 Date: 06/01/2010 Time: 15:47:13 User: N/A Computer: MAIL Description: This is an SMTP protocol log for virtual server ID 1, connection #5. The client at "192.168.16.2" sent a "xexch50" command, and the SMTP server responded with "504 Need to authenticate first ". The full command sent was "xexch50 2904 2". This will probably cause the connection to fail.
Note that 192.168.16.2 is Server A, and that this message was received on Server B's event log.
I've also received this error (again, 1 error for each PF being replicated)
Event Type: Information Event Source: MSExchangeTransport Event Category: Categorizer Event ID: 9013 Date: 06/01/2010 Time: 16:57:56 User: N/A Computer: MAIL Description: A message from 'smtp:CERBERA-IS@girlings.co.uk' could not be delivered because the sender does not have permission to send to recipient 'smtp:MAIL-IS@girlings.co.uk'. This is due to a delivery restriction configured on the recipient. (Message-ID: [REMOVED]). A DSN will be generated.
I've had a look at KB843106 and verified that Integrated Windows Authentication is enabled on both SMTP virtual servers, but don't really know where to go from here. Any ideas?
Things I've Verified
- Both servers are members of the Exchange Domain Servers group.
- Server A (the SBS server) is a member of : Domain Controllers; Exchange Domain Servers; RAS and IAS servers.
- Server B (the 2003 server) is a member of : Cert Publishers; Domain Computers; Exchange Domain Servers.
Default SMTP Virtual Server settings
Server A (internet facing machine)
- Postini's IP address has been added as an IP which can relay.
- Authentication Methods :
- Anonymous Access : Ticked
- Basic authentication : Ticked
- Integrated Windows Authentication : Ticked
- Delivery -> Advanced Delivery -> FQDN = servera.domain.local
- Delivery -> Advanced Delivery -> Smart Host = [blank]
- Delivery -> Outbound Security -> Anonymous Access is selected.
As above, except - Delivery -> Advanced Delivery -> FQDN = serverb.domain.local
