Posted on 2005-05-10
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I've recently completed a migration from 5.5 to 2k03. I have decomissioned the 5.5 server, removed dns and wins entries for it and switched to native mode in exchange. I am getting these events in my application log on the exchange 2k03 server.

An RPC communications error occurred. Unable to bind over RPC. Locality Table (LTAB) index: 45, Windows 2000/MTA error code: 1753. Comms error 1753, Bind error 0, Remote Server Name CBSMAIL [MAIN BASE 1 500 %10] (14)

I'm also getting Event ID 1025, Source: MSExchangeIS Mailbox

An error occurred on database "First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (CBSMAIL2)".
 Function name or description of problem: EcGenerateNRN:
Error: 0x80070005

Any Help is of course appreciated!

    within doing the naming of the databases etc... followed KB article

    there is no need to rename the information stores, that is disaster recovery. the stores just need to be DISMOUNTED and ALL exchange services stopped .
