An Exchange 2003 server was found in the Exchange 2010 Routing Group in the routing tables.


This Error event indicates that the referenced routing tables show that a Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server or Exchange Server 2003 server is a member of the Exchange Server 2007 routing group. This configuration is not supported. For more information, see Coexisting with Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange 2000 Server.

User Action

To resolve this error, do the following:

  • Move the Exchange 2000 server or Exchange 2003 server to an Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003 routing group. If no Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003 routing group is available, you must use the Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003 Exchange System Manager to create a routing group and then locate the server in that routing group. You also have to create a routing group connector between the Exchange 2007 routing group and the Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003 routing group.

  • If the recommended steps do not resolve this error, contact Microsoft Customer Support Services. For more information about how to contact support, visit the Microsoft Help and Support Web site.
