SYMPTOMS

When you run Exchange 2000 Server in a cluster environment and a resource failure of the message transfer agent (MTA) occurs, the time that is required to complete a failure may increase.

CAUSE

The information store periodically tries to communicate with the MTA. Because the MTA has stopped responding, the information store waits for a period up to 10 minutes to determine that the MTA is no longer available. During this time, the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) virtual server is waiting for the information store to complete the operations that are required to bring the SMTP virtual server offline. As a result, the SMTP virtual server does not complete a graceful shutdown in the configured time-out value.
