Archiving Server uses Message Queuing to ensure reliability when processing data.
To install Message Queuing by using Server Manager
Log on as a domain user with local administrator rights to the server that will be running Archiving Server or the Front End Server.
Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
Click Add Features.
Expand Message Queuing, expand Message Queuing Services, and verify that the Message Queuing Server and Directory Service Integration check boxes are selected.
Click Next, and then click Install.
When prompted to restart the computer, click OK to complete the installation.
To ensure that Message Queuing is installed and ready for installation of Archiving Server, enable the Advanced Features on the View tab in Active Directory Users and Computers to view and verify that Message Queuing is enabled for the computer.

Run the following command:
