Error with Routing Agent after SP1 Exchange 2010

TacoFlavoredKisses used Ask the Experts™
We were using a routing agent for 2010 exchange hub transport servers.  After upgrading to SP1 we ran into an issue with this.  We had to remove the routing agent we built to get the transport service to run.  When trying to create a new one, we get an error.

Looks like they changed how this works, and RoutingAgentOverride.SampleRoutingAgentFactory is no longer in existance.  Anyone know the new correct method?

Install-TransportAgent "NEWAgent" -TransportAgentFactory "RoutingAgentOverride.SampleRoutingAgentFactory" -AssemblyPath "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Public\ExchangeRouter_NEW.dll"


The TransportAgentFactory type "RoutingAgentOverride.SampleRoutingAgentFactory" doesn't exist. The TransportAgentFactory type must be the Microsoft .NET class type of the transport agent factory.
Parameter name: TransportAgentFactory

can you go to cmd and do a iisreset /noforce and afterwards the services are up, restart the service: MSExchangeTransport service

and try retyping the command: "NEWAgent" -TransportAgentFactory "RoutingAgentOverride.SampleRoutingAgentFactory" -AssemblyPath "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Public\ExchangeRouter_NEW.dll"


We have tried the iisreset and restarting transport with no luck.

For the command are you saying to omit the Install-TransportAgent part of it?


Still no progress on this.
Can you type: Get-TransportAgent | fl in EMS and post your results. Yes I was meaning to type the Install-TransportAgent before the beginning of the ccommand (wrote a little to fast)

You should open a case with microsoft as well


It looks like the IISreset actually did help.  Also typed the command instead of copying and pasting.

Working now.
