I'm running LCS 2005 Sp1 on Windows Server 2003, I have MSQM installed and configured I have the DB instance created and running. I have the Archiving service activated and the service is running with no errors and all users are set to archive all communications. The Archiving Queue Path is associated properly. Everything is configured according to the M$ technet article for deploying LCS archiving, , but when I open the table "messages" in the LcsLog SQL datebase it returns 0 rows. What am i missing or is there possibly another issue?

    Where have you installed the Archiving Service? Is it on the LCS Server itself? Is the SQL Server running on the seperate box? Have you installed MSMQ on the SQL Server too?

    The archiving service, SQL Server and MSMQ are all on the LCS server.

    That is not a supported scenario. The SQL Server and LCS cannot reside on the same server for both Standard as well as Enterprise Editions.

    Install SQL on a different box and try the steps in the document. It should work that way.

    Did you try moving the service to a different box? Did that resolve the issue?
