SYMPTOMS

When you set up Dynamic Remote Access Service on Microsoft Exchange Server, the Dynamic RAS Connector may not deliver messages. When you set the message transfer agent (MTA) diagnostics logging to maximum for Field Engineering and X.400, Event Viewer displays the following events in the application log (numbers in the descriptions may vary):

Event ID: 9322
Source: MSExchangeMTA
Description: An interface error has occurred. An MtaBindBack over RPC has failed. Locality Table (LTAB) index: %1, NT/MTA error code:5. Comms error %3, Bind error %4,Remote Server Name %5, Protocol String %6 [%7 %8 %9 %10]

Event ID: 289
Source: MSExchangeMTA
Type: Warning
Category: X.400 Service
Description: A connection to /O=OrganizationName/OU=SiteName/CN=Configuration/CN=Connections/CN=ConnectorName could not be opened. [MTA XFER-IN 17 26] (12)

Event ID: 1294
Source: MSExchangeMTA
Type: Warning
Category: X.400 Service

Event ID: 9316
Source: MSExchangeMTA
Type: Warning
Description: An RPC communications error occurred. No data was sent over the RPC connection. Locality table (LTAB) index: <x>. Windows NT error: 9301.The MTA will attempt to recover the RPC connection. [BASE IL PIPE RAS xxxxx] (12)

Event ID 9311
Source: MSExchangeMTA
Type: Warning
Description: A RAS communications error has occurred for gateway /o=MS/ou=PSS/cn=Configuration/cn=Connections/cn=DR. RAS error code returned: 718, RAS Table index: 0. The MTA will attempt to recover the RAS connection. [BASE IL PIPE RAS 35 230] (12)

CAUSE

This behavior can occur when the data in the Remote Server Name box in the Dynamic RAS Connector dialog box differs from the data in the Local MTA Name box in the Message Transfer Agent property page. Note that data is case sensitive, and in this instance, the remote server name in the Dynamic RAS Connector dialog box was typed using a different case than in the Message Transfer Agent Properties dialog box.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, confirm that the name of the server in the Remote Server Name box in the Dynamic RAS Connector Properties dialog box is identical to the name found in the Local MTA Name box in the remote Message Transfer Agent Properties dialog box.

If you find a discrepancy, type the name in the Remote Server Name box exactly as it appears in the Local MTA Name box, and then stop and restart the MTA.

MORE INFORMATION

To decipher Dynamic RAS Connector error codes found in the Description field of Event Viewer, consult the Rasphone.hlp file located on your Exchange Server computer. In addition, many MTA-related events can indicate multiple problems.
