Global Catalog NSPI port has been overridden
Topic Last Modified: 2007-01-15
The Microsoft® Exchange Server Analyzer Tool reads the following registry entry on global catalog servers to determine whether the TCP/IP Port registry key is set:
If the Exchange Server Analyzer finds that the TCP/IP Port registry key has been created and is set, a non-default configuration message is displayed.
The TCP/IP Port registry key is required when a global catalog server needs to use a specific port for servicing MAPI clients. If you do not have such a requirement in your Exchange environment, you can remove this key.
