Exchange System Attendant Error

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Good Afternoon,

We have two machines, one is the PDC running exchange, one is the BDC. The BDC used to have Zetafax on it which has recently been uninstalled.

Since doing this we have seen the following errors in the Event Log:

MSExchangeSA - Event ID - 2027
Unable to generate the e-mail address. Unable to load address module 'C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\address\FAX\i386\zf2kproxy.dll' for address type 'FAX'. Error 0xc007007e.

MSExchangeSA - Event ID - 2037
The file version of '\address\FAX\i386\zf2kproxy.dll' installed on the local server is not current. Unable to locate a correct version on any server in the site.

MSExchangeAL - Event ID - 8231
Permanent failure reported by policy group provider for 'CN=Recipient Policies,CN=dsiuk,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=dsiuk,DC=local':'MAD.EXE', error=8000ffff.  Taking provider offline.  

I've removed the FAX element from the Default Policy in the Recipient Policies section but this didn't help.

Any suggestions appriciated!!

Excellent, thank you.

I saw this KB article but hadn't tried the adsiedit.msc part, it seems to have resolve the problem.
