XIMS: Cannot Create Channel in Exchange 2000 Chat

Article ID: 249258

  • Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Standard Edition

This article was previously published under Q249258


If you try to create a channel in Exchange 2000 Server by using Microsoft Management Console (MMC) where the channel name does not begin with a number sign (#), you receive the following error message:

Invalid Channel Name

This behavior is by design, because the Exchange 2000 chat service no longer supports the Microsoft Internet Chat (MIC) protocol. All channel names must be Internet Relay Chat (IRC) or Internet Relay Chat Protocol (IRCX) compliant, and must begin with a #.
