You cannot open routing log files on Exchange Server 2010 Hub Transport servers in a mixed Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange Server 2010 environment

Vzťahuje sa na: Exchange Server 2010 EnterpriseExchange Server 2010 Standard


Consider the following scenario:
  • You configure routing group connectors between Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 routing groups and Exchange Server 2010 Hub Transport servers.
  • The Hub Transport servers are in different Active Directory sites.
  • You try to use the Routing Log Viewer tool to open routing log files on the Hub transport servers.
In this scenario, you cannot open the routing log files. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
System.Xml.Schema.XmlSchemaValidationException: Error: The element 'SourceOrTargetServers' has incomplete content. List of possible elements expected: 'String'.
at Microsoft.Exchange.Transport.RoutingTableLog.Parser.Parser.ValidateLog(XPathDocument doc, String schemaVersion)
at Microsoft.Exchange.Transport.RoutingTableLog.Parser.Parser.Parse(XPathDocument document)
at Microsoft.Exchange.Transport.RoutingTableLog.Viewer.MainForm.ParseLogBackgroundWorker_DoWork(Object sender, DoWorkEventArgs e)
at System.ComponentModel.BackgroundWorker.WorkerThreadStart(Object argument)


This issue occurs because the Exchange Server 2010 server incorrectly handles an empty list, which generates the invalid SourceOrTargetServers tag in the routing log file when it creates a bridgehead list for a routing group connector.


To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:
2685289 Description of Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 2


To work around this issue, manually remove the SourceOrTargetServers tag in the routing log file.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
