General Properties

You use the Site Addressing General property page to define a display name, determine which server should calculate routing, and decide whether to share address space with other X.400 systems.

Getting to the Site Addressing General property page

  1. In the Administrator window, choose Configuration.
  2. Double-click Site Addressing.
  3. Select the General tab.

Defining the Display Name

Use the General property page to define the display name for the Site Addressing object. The display name identifies site addressing in the Administrator window. The default name is Site Addressing.

Changing the Routing Calculation Server

The routing calculation server is responsible for recalculating the routing table. The routing table contains all information about the gateways and connectors that are used to route messages outside the site. Routing information changes any time you perform an action that affects routing, such as adding a new gateway or removing an existing gateway. The routing table calculation takes all these changes into consideration and produces an updated routing table that is then replicated to every other server in the site as soon as the change is detected. Routing table calculation occurs at the interval you specify in the Routing Calculation Schedule property page.

Note   The routing table is automatically rebuilt every time a change is made that affects routing within the site.

  1. Select the General tab.
  2. In the Routing calculation server box, select a server.

Sharing an Address Space with Other X.400 Systems

You can have another non-Microsoft Exchange Server system sharing the same address space as the Microsoft Exchange Server site. This is particularly useful when you are transitioning from another system to Microsoft Exchange Server. For example, if Microsoft Exchange Server receives a message from an X.400 system and cannot find the recipient, the message can be routed to the system that is sharing the address space. This prevents the server from sending unnecessary NDRs.

  1. Select the General tab.
  2. Select the Share address space with other X.400 systems check box.
