If a Microsoft cluster node has more than one network adapter, Microsoft Message Queuing 3.0 or Message Queuing 2.0 may try to use the wrong network adapter.
This problem occurs when Message Queuing 3.0 or Message Queuing 2.0 uses the first IP address that it establishes from a call to the GetHostByName() network API. This is not necessarily the correct IP address.
Message Queuing 3.0
To resolve this problem in Message Queuing 3.0, you must add the following registry key as a string value:
This registry value tells Message Queuing 3.0 the IP address to use.
You must also add the following registry key as a string value to tell the MSMQ clustered resource which IP address to use:
This registry value tells Message Queuing clustering resource the IP address to use. This registry value can include the IP address that is named www.<xxx.yyy.zzz>. If this key is present, Message Queuing 3.0 binds only to this address to send and receive messages.
