Message Queuing Functioning in Domain Mode

Updated: December 3, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Directory Service Integration enables Message Queuing to function in domain mode. This feature makes possible the publishing of queue properties to Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) (for public queues), out-of-the-box authentication, encryption of messages using certificates that are registered in AD DS, and routing of messages across Message Queuing sites. This feature becomes operational only when the computer joins a domain. Message Queuing must be able to join the domain and operate in domain mode.


Event ID Source Message



The Message Queuing service failed to join the computer's domain '%3'. Error %1: %2



Message Queuing objects cannot move automatically between domains (%1).



The computer object for this computer was not found in Active Directory, possibly because of Active Directory replication delays.



The Message Queuing service will not join the %1 domain. An MSMQ Configuration (msmq) object exists in the new domain with an ID differing from the service ID.



Message Queuing could not access Active Directory and failed to compute routing path for messages sent to queue %3. Messages will wait in the outgoing queue until connection with Active Directory is restored. This event is logged at most once per %4 seconds. To change this setting, set \HKLM\Software\Microsoft\MSMQ\Parameters\Event2188 registry value to desired time in seconds. Error %1: %2
