The Microsoft® Exchange Server Analyzer Tool reads the following registry entry to check for the presence of a client-oriented remote procedure call (RPC) binding order registry entry on the Exchange Server computer:
If the Exchange Server Analyzer finds the Rpc_Binding_Order present, a warning is displayed.
If the Rpc_Binding_Order value is present, it indicates that one or more of the following is installed on the computer:
- Exchange Server version 5.5
- Microsoft Office Outlook® 2003
- Windows Clustering
- The RPC_Binding_Order entry determines the protocol
sequence that is used when Outlook RPC communications are
initiated. This entry is not created in Exchange Server 2003
or in Exchange 2000 Server. This entry is only created in
Exchange Server 5.5 and in earlier versions of Exchange. If
Exchange Server 5.5 or Microsoft Outlook were previously
installed on this computer and have since been removed, you can
manually remove this registry entry. In addition, you should remove
Outlook from any computer running Exchange Server, as that is an
unsupported configuration. For more information about running
Exchange and Outlook on the same computer, see the Microsoft
Knowledge Base article 266418, "Microsoft does not recommend
installing Exchange Server and Outlook on the same computer"
|This article contains information about editing the registry. Before you edit the registry, make sure you understand how to restore the registry if a problem occurs. For information about how to restore the registry, view the "Restore the Registry" Help topic in Regedit.exe or Regedt32.exe.
To remove the Rpc_Binding_Order registry entry
Open a registry editor such as Regedit.exe or Regedt32.exe.
Navigate to: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Exchange\Exchange Provider
