exoledb registration

exoledb.dll is not found anywhere on the server hosting Exchange Server 2000, atleast, not where I expect it to be.

It is found in

 Directory of C:\WINNT\$ExchUninstall824282$

06/20/2002  03:41p           1,691,648 exoledb.dll
               1 File(s)      1,691,648 bytes

but this does not seem like the right place.


What is the safest way to reinstall or get back exoledb.dll (and ALL supporting DLL's, very important!) so it is registered and functioning properly?

Reinstall Exchange and service packs. Setup should discover that exchange is already installed.

I don't even understand how Exchange Server 2000 could funtction without this DLL?

Isn't this DLL needed by Exchange?

I think I read where it is used for Event Sinks, etc.

This seems like such a drastic step.  I am not the Network Admin so I don't know how big a deal this is.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Do you need the EXOLEDB.DLL for something?

Seems like if you are working with DLL's on a server and there is something wrong, then you should get the system administrator to resolve this.

Fiddling with DLL's is a big deal.

Well, one thing I found out was the Exchange Server was installed on E:   not   C:.


So this helps me a lot.

exoledb.dll was on E: right where it should be.
EXOLEDB is a driver, that is typically provided by Exchange or SQL Server.  It would be utilized from SQL to access an Exchange data store.  If you do not need it, you do not need it.
