The file version of ‘%1’ installed on the local server is not current. Unable to locate a correct version on any server in the site.

Product: Exchange
Event ID: 2037
Source: MSExchangeSA
Version: 8.0
Symbolic Name: evtFileRepNoFileInSite
Message: The file version of ‘%1’ installed on the local server is not current. Unable to locate a correct version on any server in the site.

This Error event indicates that the version of the e-mail address generator on the server does not match the version of the e-mail address generator in the Active Directory directory service.

Microsoft Exchange Server will try to locate a copy of the dynamic link library on other computers that are running Exchange Server within the routing group first. If that fails, it will search Exchange servers that are located in other Administrative Groups.

User Action

To resolve this error, do the following:

  1. Use an Active Directory tool such as ADSI edit or LDAP to examine the fileversion attribute of the Address-Type in Active Directory. The address types are found in the Configuration context of Active Directory under the Services/Microsoft Exchange/organization/Addressing/Address/Types container. The fileversion attribute of the address type will be in Hexadecimal format:

    18 00 AD 02 00 00 08 00

    Convert this to decimal by reversing the order of the bits and grouping them in words:


    Now convert the Hexadecimal to decimal:

    0008 is 8

    0000 is 0

    02AD is 695

    0018 is 24

    The file version is 8.0.695.24.

  2. Compare the version obtained in the previous step with the file version of the file that is found on the local hard disk under C:/Program Files/Microsoft/Exchange Server/Mailbox/Address/type/type.dll, where C:/ is the directory to which you installed Exchange.

  3. If the file versions do not match, update the dynamic link library to the version that matches that found on the file version attribute in Active Directory. If the file versions match, contact Microsoft Customer Support Services for help. For information about how to contact support, visit Microsoft Help and Support.
