  • Hi,

    Could you provide us the following information:

    1. Exchange version and basic information about your topology
    2. Events logged on the Exchange servers
    3. Is this a one time event within SCOM or is this error repeating
    4. Extra information about the generated SCOM alert

    Also can you take a look at your Exchange mail queues?

  • The MP is obviously for Exchange 2010. Microsoft has no published solution:

    Number of items in retry table has been more than 30000 for 30 minutes

    On the other hand, we have been monitoring Exchange 2010 with SCOM 2007 R2 for about 21 months. I’ve seen several strange errors that never made sense, though never this one. One way to get rid of some of meaningless errors (not sure if this one belongs to that category) is to make sure SCOM is configured according to these guidelines:

    Guidance, Tuning and Known Issues for the Exchange 2010 Management Pack for System Center Operations Manager 2007

    As you will see, there are also things that just don’t work.
    All of this should of course not keep you away from studying your event logs thoroughly and see if you find some significant pattern.

    Btw, here is a related link:

    Please keep us updated.
