Message: Exchange Search Indexer has enabled indexing for the Mailbox Database %1 (GUID = %2).

This Information event indicates that the Microsoft Exchange Search service has enabled indexing of the specified mailbox database. This event can occur in the following conditions:

  • The Exchange Search service enables the database on a successful attempt where the database was disabled earlier because of a retry-able failure.

  • The Exchange Search service enables a database that has been newly created or moved.

This Information event message specifies two parameters, the name and GUID. These two parameters identify the mailbox database.

Note   GUIDs identify objects such as interfaces, manager entry-point vectors (EPVs), and class objects. A GUID is a 128-bit value that consists of one group of 8 hexadecimal digits, followed by three groups of 4 hexadecimal digits, followed by one group of 12 hexadecimal digits. The following example shows the groupings of hexadecimal digits in a GUID: 6B29FC40-CA47-1067-B31D-00DD010662DA.
