Archive task is not processing any items, dtarce shows the following enties kept reoccurring, what could be the possible reasons for this?

You might have items sitting on the AdminQueue in the MSMQ

What you could do is to check the queue, and see if those items have been purged.

If they are, you can try to purge that queue, it might be necessary to stop ev-services first.

Thank you, Gertjan, MCSE, MCITP,MCTS, SCS, STS

There is nothing in Admin queue, Exchange archiving task A5 queue has item, but not going down at all.

The MSMQ queue stuff that you see in the dtrace is the norm or red-hering if you like. Need to see the full dtrace for scheduled archiving. It is possible that there is a currupted or large mailbox/messages stuck in the A5 queue that is causing the issue.

Try purging the A5 queue, enable dtrace and then set the schedule archive to start, let it run for a while and check dtrace.

Also anything in the event logs?

Hope that helps.

Can you open the problem message in the user's mailbox?

Have a look at this.

Hope that helps.

In that case I would log a case with Tech Support and get them to investigate the dtrace in more depth as it sounds like you issue is more serious than the technote explains.

Upload the dtrace.

Event 3288 seems some corruption in that particular mailbox. Difficult to guide because dtrace is not uploaded and dtrace excerpt which you put is actually not the error and also not related to your issue.

Pls ref:

We found out that some locations such as MSMQ etc. were not excluded from Antivirus On Demand Scan was cauing issue. Now that we have excluded all recommended locations, archiving running fine.
