PRB: Exchange System Attendant crashes on some systems where the Zetafax Connector is installed



ID: ZTN1457

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax Connector version 9
  • Microsoft Exchange 2000 and 2003


During a scheduled or on-demand run of the Recipient Update Service (RUS) the System Attendant faults on some systems when the Zetafax Connector is installed. If the Zetafax Connector is removed the RUS runs normally.


The Zetafax Connector install adds a FAX proxy address (ZF2KPROXY.DLL) to the default recipient policy.

When the Exchange object has no First name or Last name attribute the RUS is unable to add a FAX address and faults the System Attendant.


This issue is resolved by applying the following patch:
