CAUSE

Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 causes NDISWAN Services to return IP addresses in the order in which they are bound. This change results in IP addresses not currently bound to the TCP/IP stack being returned when making a call to the Winsock API function GetHostbyName(). Microsoft Exchange Server fails to register Internet protocols with these IP addresses.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or the individual software update. For information on obtaining the latest service pack, please go to:

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4. This problem was first corrected in Windows NT version 4.0 Service Pack 5.

MORE INFORMATION

NNTP is another protocol that Exchange supports and this error can occur with this protocol for the same reasons.

This error can also occur when certain applications are installed that overwrite the files:
  • %windir%\system32\mfc42.dll
  • %windir%\system32\mfc42u.dll
The version stamp on these files will be 6.00.8168.0. To resolve this issue, install SP5 or higher.
