  • There is no ActiveSYnc service. It runs within the application context of Exchange and IIS. THere is an ActiveSync App pool in IIS that can be stopped, started and restarted however.

     

    Its not supported to virtualize the UM role in Exchange 2007. Only in Exchange 2010 SP1:

  • Hi,

    Exchange ActiveSync is a Microsoft Exchange synchronization protocol that's optimized to work together with high-latency and low-bandwidth networks. The protocol, based on HTTP and XML, lets mobile phones access an organization's information on a server that's running Microsoft Exchange. Exchange ActiveSync enables mobile phone users to access their e-mail, calendar, contacts, and tasks and to continue to be able to access this information while they're working offline.

    For more, you can refer to the article ‘Understanding Exchange ActiveSync’.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks
