Considerations When Installing Message Queuing on Windows Server 2008

Do not install a Message Queuing server with routing on a domain controller

If your Message Queuing infrastructure requires both message routing and Active Directory Domain Services access, install this functionality on different computers to prevent overload on the domain controller. For example, install a Message Queuing server with the Routing Service feature on a non-domain controller computer, and install another Message Queuing server with the Windows 2000 client support feature on a Windows Server 2008 domain controller to provide Active Directory Domain Services access for Windows 2000 clients. This configuration helps prevent overload on the domain controller.
