Exchange clustering produces event ID 1182

Dear Team,

I have this exchange server that keeps on producing this:

"ExchangeIS - event id 1182 - Thank you for participating in the Microsoft Exchange Server beta Program. Your license to use this beta version of the Microsoft Exchange Server software has expired. Contact Microsoft Corporation."

This was running very well along with the other node in the cluster. We evicted this node when we moved data center. When we rejoin this node, this problem came out. It keeps restarting the IS service.

Already reinstalled Exchange using the open license CD we had. Reinstalling did not fixed the problem. Need an expert advise.

What version of Exchange? Are you sure the software cd isnt beta? Can you post up the actual exchange version?

Hi Radweld,

Thank you. Yes sure it's not a beta CD installer. This was running very well in the cluster. Until the node was evicted from the cluster during data center transfer.

When we rejoin it to the cluster, it gave us event id 1182 every 60 mins and causes the Information Store service to restart.

I tried to reinstall exchange using the install from the Open License that we had but still did not work. I'm planning to uninstall exchange and install it again. Is there any caveat that I should know before uninstall?

- We just opted to build a new exchange server and join it to the cluster.
