| | Increasing number of messaging agents beyond 5
Please Login to Remove!
I'm now running BES on a dual 2.8 Xeon server with 4GB RAM and it's hardly breaking sweat. I know this isn't the most blistering server in the world, but it seems more than adequate.
I'm trying to increase the number of messaging agents to 10. The reason being that we have several Exchange mailbox servers and I'd like to have more agents.
I've read this thread: -
...but when I change the registry, it reverts to 5 again every time I restart the dispatcher.
I've changed the NumAgents value to 10 (decimal) and also tried amending the ActiveAgents value from 1,2,3,4,5 to 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10. Each time I restart services, ActiveAgents returns to 1,2,3,4,5. NumAgents remains at 10.
Am I doing something wrong - or is BES just determining that it needs no more than 5 agents?
Also - can BES run multiple messaging agents against the same mailbox server? Or is it just 1 per server.
Thanks in advance,
