XADM: Exchange Uses Information Store for Intersite Replication

Article ID: 169638

Article Last Modified on 10/27/2006



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Exchange Server 4.0 Standard Edition
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 5.0 Standard Edition
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q169638

SYMPTOMS

When you attempt to remove the Private Information Store from an Exchange Server version 5.0 or 5.5 computer that is acting as the site's replication bridgehead server, the following error message may be appear:

STOP
This Private Information Store is being used. Remove the Directory
Replication Connector first.

CAUSE

In Microsoft Exchange Server 5.0 and 5.5, the information store is used to deliver and receive inter-site replication messages. The Directory service uses MAPI calls to communicate with the store for this purpose. In Exchange Server 4.0, the above error message does not appear because the Directory service communicates directly with the message transfer agent (MTA) for inter-site replication communications.
