Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Message Queuing relies on network connectivity for much of its functionality. If network connectivity is lost or compromised, messages may not be sent or delivered.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 2140
Source: MSMQ
Version: 6.0
Message: This server was unable to resolve the IP addresses of other routing servers. Please check that all computers are registered in DNS.


Repair DNS issues and confirm that the Message Queuing routing servers have IP addresses

IP addresses must be assigned to all routing servers, and they must be registered properly in Domain Name System (DNS). Assign IP addresses to all routing servers, and make sure that they are registered in DNS. If that does not work, check the routing server configuration to ensure that the routing settings (in/out server, service is running, and others) are correct.
