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

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

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