MORE INFORMATION
The Exchange Server Database engine has detected a potential change (or fix) in the sort order for various characters in the newly installed version (major or minor) of Windows NT. To prevent any corruption to secondary indexes, the Exchange Server Database engine assumes that the sort order has changed and initiates the rebuilding of the indexes.
