Description
Event sink registration for SMTP virtual server /LM/SMTPSVC/1 failed. Error code is <error code>.
Comments
 
As per Microsoft: "When a new SMTP virtual server is created, event sinks are registered for it. Occasionally, the metabase update service fails to register these event sinks and the SMTP virtual server does not work properly. This event occurs at the time of the virtual server creation". See MSEX2K3DB for additional information about this event.
From a newsgroup post: "If you have uninstalled and reinstalled IIS on the cluster node, this will break Exchange. You will need to run the Exchange 2003 setup on this cluster node and select the "reinstall" action to re-register all of the SMTP bindings within the new IIS installation, etc".
