MSMQ event ID 2124


  • Need help trying to install MSMQ with domain services. I've installed it, deleted stale message queues, set all the permissions for the server in active directory but keep getting event ID 2124 so MSMQ winds up in workgroup mode. Have tried the fixes from Have checked everything from the link and still won't connect. Anyone have any suggestions?

  • Hi Mike,

    It is a good troubleshooting link about MSMQ installation which you referred in your post.

    To solve this problem effectively, I need to get some detailed information from you.

    Could you please tell me that has the machine you are installing MSMQ joined to a domain?

    Could you PING the domain controller successfully from this machine?

    Did you detele the stale objects before or after the new MSMQ installation?

    I hope that we can find out a solution together!

    Best Regards,

  • Yea its on the domain, i can ping the domain controller and deleted the stale object before installation because the error log told me there was a msg queue with a different id. Than after installation i have deleted the old queue and still come across event id 2124

  • Hi Mike,

    According to you reply, the old queue was deleted after the installation of MSMQ, could you please delete the old queue before the installation?

    If this still couldn’t fix your problem, please release another post on Microsoft Message Queuing Forum to get more professional help.
