Exchange 2007 SP3 Failure at Hub Transport Role step.

I have Exchange 2007 running on W2K3 R2.  I attempted to apply SP3 and got the following error message during the Hub Transport step:

Hub Transport Role
Failed

Error:
When the AuthMechanism parameter on a Receive connector is set to the value ExchangeServer, you must set the FQDN parameter on the Receive connector to one of the following values: the FQDN of the transport server "gsjs2.domainname.local", the NetBIOS name of the transport server "GSJS2", or $null.

We use a third party that receives our mail and relays it to our internal exhange server.  The FDQN of my LAN is gsjs2.domainname.local.

I have 3 Connectors:

Client - FDQN: gsjs2.domainname.local  Auth: integrated
Default - FDQN: mail.domainname.local Auth: Exchange Server
Internal Relay: FDQN: mail.domainname.local Auth: none

I believe it's complaining about the Default connector.

Your recommendations on how to resolve are very much appreciated it.  If I change the FDQN, how to proceed to continue with the SP3 install?  Do I rerun setup?

I'm hoping to resolve before monday AM when the workforce returns.

Many Thanks

your Default connector must have the fqdn value of gsjs2.domainname.local  because of the ExchangeServer authentication

if you want external mail to connect to a different fqdn, then you need to create a new receive connector with anonymous permission
