Event ID 2216 - no archiving for one out of two Exchange servers

Created: 19 Jun 2013 • Updated: 19 Jun 2013 | 1 comment

We've got EV 8.0 SP4 with Exchange 2007 SP3 rollup9.

There is a single EV server.

There are 2x Exchange servers.

Everything is working fine for the second Exchange server but no automatic archiving appears to have been successful since the 3rd June (our policies are 4 days or 7 days).

We've been using EV since 2007 and it's been working fine for the last couple of years until this has started happening.

 

The only error we see is: "Event ID: 2216 Message dispenser will suspend processing for 10 minutes due to a recoverable error"

The MSMQ queues had approx 5,000 items in the A7 and A5 queues which have been purged.

The MAPI account is working fine and has not been moved but we've created a new account and changed over to use that.

If I restart the task it processes approx 5-10 items in the A2 queue which is around the 60-75 item mark.

A dstrace doesn't show much up, I've copied the log just before and after the 2216 error below:

Any suggestions on what to try that will resolve this?

Do you see any item in A4 queue? The MAPI account you referring I assume its EV System mailbox. As you changed it to new, did you grant Vault service account "Send as" permissions on it? Its more related to System mailbox or mailbox in migration phase.
