Recipient Update Service - Exchange 2003

Posted on 2009-04-22

I'm running Exchange 2003 and Server 2003.
I recently ran the Best Practices Analyzer and it came up with a warning:
"Recipient Update Service did not process all changes".  (screen shot attached below).
So I followed through and read the KB article on it.
Then I ran the ADSI tool and clicked through all the containers until I got to:
CN=Recipient Update Services.
In the right pane there were two lines
CN=Recipient Update Service (MY DOMAIN)
CN= Recipient Update Service (Enerprise configuration)
Checking the properties on both of these I scrolled down to gatewayProxy.
There is no value set for the gatewayProxy for the (MY DOMAIN) RUS,
However there IS a value set for the gatewayProxy (Enterprise config) (See screen shot).

So, my question is, should I remove this value that is set in gatewayProxy (Enterprise Config) or should I leave it alone.
As far as I can see I have no problems with my Recipient Update Policies; I create a new user and the correct email address is populated in Exchange for that new user.
I'm concerned that removing this value will break something that didn't need to be fixed.

Thanks for you suggestions.

    User email addresses are stamped by the Domain RUS
    The Enterprise RUS stamps email addresses on public folder stores and system objects
    If there is a warning in ExBPA about this then...I recommend clearly out the value.
    Just so that you can be really can copy the value into a notepad....then clear out the value for the gateway proxy attribute for Enterpirse RUS and then monitor the server
    In case anything goes wrong you can always copy the value back from the notepad back into the gatewayproxy attribute of the ERUS
    However there would be no issues is clearing out the attribute
