The ServersCache subkey of the MSMQ\Parameters subkey stores information pertaining to Message Queuing (also known as MSMQ) about each site in the enterprise. ServersCache contains a separate entry for each site in the enterprise. The entry is the name of the site, and its value consists of a list of all the MQIS servers in the site. These values are updated at an interval specified by the value of the DSListRefresh entry.

Each of the entries in the ServersCache subkey represents a site and stores the computer names and supported protocols of all Message Queuing servers at the site. These entries have the following format:


Entry name Data type Value

Site name


01 | 10 | 11 NumberComputer name[,NumberComputer name...]

Each computer name follows a number (01, 10, or 11), which indicates the communication protocols that each server supports. If the site includes multiple servers, the entries must be separated by commas.

  • A value of 1 in the lower (right) digit indicates that the server supports the IPX protocol.

  • A value of 1 in the higher (left) digit indicates that the server supports the IP protocol.

For example, the following entry indicates that, at the Central site, three computers are running Message Queuing: \\ServerOne supports both IP and IPX, \\ServerTwo supports only IP, and \\ServerThree supports only IPX:
