Exchange 2003 MSExchangeMU error 1040

In application event log I receive each 15 minutes Event
ID:1040, Source ExchangeMU, Text: Metabase Update failed
replication 5 times with error 80070490 (Element not
found.). Please change the diagnostic logging level of
MSExchangeMU to 'minimum' or greater to find the source of
the problem.

I have changed the diagnostic logging level maximum..still I get nothing new in the event viewer. I have updated and rebuilt my default recipient policy, restarted system attendant..and still the error keeps filling my logs. I have run the domainprep again..and still did not fix my problem...any ideas?

Server Is Windows 2003, with Exchange 2003. There is 3 hosted domains on the exchange server.

Deleting those 2 keys in the metabase, fixed the problem!

thanks for your help!

Hi Shawn!!

I have the same problem with my Exchange server.  What are the keys that were deleted? How do I delete them? Can you please describe the needed steps to solve this problem.

Many Thanks!
