Alert Type

Warning

MOM Rule Path

Microsoft Exchange Server/Exchange 2007/Common Components/Hub Transport and Edge Transport/Transport

MOM Rule Name

The path to the Receive connector protocol log files has not been set. The existing path will be used.

This Warning event indicates that the following conditions are both true:

  • The ReceiveProtocolLogPath parameter on the Set-TransportServer cmdlet is currently set to $null.

  • The previous directory that was specified by the ReceiveProtocolLogPath parameter on the Set-TransportServer cmdlet still exists.

By default, the Receive connector protocol log files are located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpReceive. All the Receive connectors on a Hub Transport server or an Edge Transport server share the same protocol log files.

The preferred method of disabling protocol logging is to set the ProtocolLoggingLevel parameter to None on the Set-ReceiveConnector cmdlet for each Receive connector that is configured on the Hub Transport server or Edge Transport server.

If the following conditions are true, protocol logging for one or more Receive connectors will still occur on the Hub Transport server or Edge Transport server, even if the value of the ReceiveProtocolLogPath parameter is set to $null on the Set-TransportServer cmdlet:

  • The value of the ProtocolLoggingLevel parameter is set to Verbose on the Set-ReceiveConnector cmdlet for one or more Receive connectors.

  • The previous directory that was specified by the ReceiveProtocolLogPath parameter on the Set-TransportServer cmdlet still exists.

To resolve this warning, set the value of the ReceiveProtocolLogPath parameter on the Set-TransportServer cmdlet to a local file path. If you want to disable protocol logging on one or more Receive connectors, set the value of the ProtocolLoggingLevel parameter to None on the Set-TransportServer cmdlet for the specific Receive connectors. If you want to enable protocol logging on one or more Receive connectors, set the value of the ProtocolLoggingLevel parameter to Verbose on the Set-TransportServer cmdlet for the specific Receive connectors.
