Intelligent Message Filter

I have installed Intelligent Message Filter for Microsoft Exchange 2003.  However, when I go into the Performance monitor, the performance counters & object heading "MSExchange Intelligent Message" are not there.

There are a few warnings in the Application Event Viewer, like:

I saw this KB article that states the IMF perf counters don't appear in SysMon until a message has been processed by the IMF ... have you tried forcing a message to be processed by the IMF and then check it in System Monitor?

Exchange Intelligent Message Filter performance counters do not appear in System Monitor
The Intelligent Message Filter System Monitor counters only appear in System Monitor after a message has been processed by Intelligent Message Filter.

Have you applied Exchange 2003 SP1 to the server?

sclarklindaburyAuthor Commented:
Yes, Exchange 2003 SP1 was applied before I installed the IMF.

You need to use unlodctr and lodctr on the services giving you problems - this will unload and reload the counters ...

for example:

unlodctr MSSEARCH
lodctr MSSEARCH

BNettles73Commented:
actually ... that isn't the total truth ...

unlodctr <service>
lodctr <servicename.ini>

I've done this with IIS ...

went something like

unlodctr w3svc
lodctr w3ctrs.ini

I've opened up a support incident with Microsoft.  They say it's a known issue/bug with the IMF, and that re-installing usually fixes it.  I've re-installed, and so far the object still hasn't appeared in the performance monitor.   I'm still working with them on a solution, so we might as well close this question.

That is cool with me, if it is cool with BNettles73.  Sorry I wasn't more help.

Hope it works though.

Actually,I suppose the closest answer would be the KB article with the IMF release notes, so I'll award the points to him.  Thanks for your effort though, bgoins.  It was appreciated.

I was thinking it was probably going to take a reinstall ... I hate reinstalling so was trying to come up with some kind of solution ... if you get everything fixed please post back ... I'm looking at deploying the IMF on 4 gateways next month so I might end up with the same issue ...

Thanks for the pts!
