We are transitioning from Microsoft Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007. Exchange has been
installed successfully. After running a scan using the Best Practices Analyzer Tool, I received
a warning that “Recipient Update Service did not process all changes. The ‘gatewayProxy’
attribute for Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration)’ contains old data that was not
fully processed. This data has existed since 2006-08-02T20:43:23Z and should be manually
removed to avoid accidental changes to user addresses”. I receive the same warning for the
‘domain configuration’. This article addresses what I believe to be the solution
However, I would like to
verify this is correct. If so, what kind of “accidental changes” could result from not doing this?
I have followed the steps outlined in this article up to the point of deleting old attributes, but have
not deleted them. There are two attributes and appear as a long string of numbers/letters
followed by SMTP and X400 values. I want to be sure this is a proper course of action since I
don’t have a full understanding of what deleting these attributes will or could affect.
