For the versions of Windows listed at the beginning of this section and not cited in this note, this ADM attribute does not represent the version of the MSMQ system and contains an empty string.

<3> Section 3.1.1.1: For Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP, the default value for the QueueManagerQuota ADM attribute of the QueueManager ADM element is 0xFFFFFFFF.

<4> Section 3.1.1.1: The ConnectedNetworkIdCollection ADM attribute is maintained only in the ADMs for Windows NT and Windows 2000.

<5> Section 3.1.1.1: For Windows NT, this list is set by the user.

<6> Section 3.1.1.1: For Windows NT Server operating system and Windows 2000 Server operating system, the default value is True.

<7> Section 3.1.1.1: Windows enables the HardenedSecurity ADM attribute by defining a registry key of type DWORD called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSMQ\Parameters\Hardened_MSMQ and by setting its value to 0x00000001. Any change to this registry value takes effect when the queue manager is restarted.

<8> Section 3.1.1.1: The ConnectedNetworkCollection ADM attribute is maintained only in the ADMs for Windows NT and Windows 2000.

<9> Section 3.1.1.2: Scope is treated as a directory attribute only if the Message Queuing (MSMQ): Directory Service Protocol [MS-MQDS] is in use.

<10> Section 3.1.1.12: On Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003, the queue manager does not set this ADM attribute.

<11> Section 3.1.1.12: On Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003, if the NegativeJournalingRequested ADM attribute of a Message ADM element instance is True, the queue manager ignores the ApplicationDeadletterQueue ADM attribute of that Message ADM element instance and continues to store undeliverable messages in the system dead-letter queue if the messages were sent to a nontransactional queue or in the transactional system dead-letter queue if they were sent to a transactional queue.

<12> Section 3.1.1.12:  The maximum allowed value of the TimeToReachQueue ADM attribute can be configured by setting a value in the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\msmq\parameters\MachineCache\LongLiveTime. When this key is absent, the default maximum is 0x54600 (345,600 seconds = 4 days). On Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003, when this key is absent, the default maximum is 0x76A700 (7,776,000 seconds = 90 days).

<13> Section 3.1.1.12: For Windows NT, the following hash algorithms are supported: MD2 [RFC1319], MD4 [RFC1320], MD5 [RFC1321]. For Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003, the following hash algorithm is supported in addition to the algorithms listed preceding: SHA-1 [RFC3110].

<14> Section 3.1.1.12: For Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003, the default value is MD5 [RFC1321].

<15> Section 3.1.1.12: Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 support only the following encryption algorithms and key lengths:

  • RC2 with 40-bit and 128-bit key length [RFC2268]

  • RC4 with 40-bit and 128-bit key length [RFC4757]

<16> Section 3.1.1.12: For Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003, the default value is RC2 [RFC2268].

<17> Section 3.1.3: For Windows NT and Windows 2000, the queue manager uses the MSMQ: Directory Service Discovery Protocol [MS-MQSD] by calling the Get Directory Server List Higher-Layer Triggered Event ([MS-MQSD] section 3.1.4.1). The DirectoryServerList ADM attribute of the local QueueManager ADM element instance is populated with the names of MSMQ Directory Service servers.

<18> Section 3.1.3: Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 do not use "Microsoft Enhanced RSA and AES Cryptographic Provider".

<19> Section 3.1.3: Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 do not use "Microsoft Enhanced RSA and AES Cryptographic Provider".

<20> Section 3.1.7.1.3.1: Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 do not perform this step.

<21> Section 3.1.7.1.18: For Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, the queue manager performs the actions listed following instead of generating a Send Change Notification ([MS-MQCN] section 3.3.4.1) event:

  • Define iComputerName as a string that contains the NetBIOS name of the computer that hosts the queue. This can be extracted from the Pathname ADM attribute of the Queue ADM element instance representing that queue. The processing rules for this extraction can be inferred from [MS-MQMQ] section 2.1.1.

  • Generate a Read Directory (section 3.1.7.1.20) event with the following arguments:

    • iDirectoryObjectType := "QueueManager"

    • iFilter : = An array of the following attribute-filter expressions:

      • "ComputerName" EQUALS iComputerName

    • If the rStatus returned by the Read Directory event is set to DirectoryOperationResult.Success:

      • Define iRemoteQueueManager as a reference to a QueueManager (section 3.1.1.1) ADM element instance, and set it to the returned rDirectoryObject argument.

      • If the  iRemoteQueueManager.OperatingSystemVersion string starts with "4.0" or "5.0":

<22> Section 3.1.7.1.18: For Windows NT and Windows 2000, the queue manager uses the directory service protocol specified in [MS-MQDS].

<23> Section 3.1.7.1.19: For Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, the queue manager performs the following actions instead of generating a Send Change Notification ([MS-MQCN] section 3.3.4.1) event:

  • Define iComputerName as a string that contains the NetBIOS name of the computer that hosts the queue. This can be extracted from Pathname of the Queue (section 3.1.1.2) ADM element instance representing that queue. The processing rules for this extraction can be inferred from [MS-MQMQ] section 2.1.1.

  • Generate a Read Directory (section 3.1.7.1.20) event with the following arguments:

    • iDirectoryObjectType := "QueueManager"

    • iFilter : = An array of the following attribute-filter expressions:

      • "ComputerName" EQUALS iComputerName

    • If the rStatus returned by the Read Directory event is set to DirectoryOperationResult.Success:

      • Define iRemoteQueueManager as a reference to a QueueManager ADM element instance and set it to the returned rDirectoryObject.

      • If the iRemoteQueueManager.OperatingSystemVersion string starts with "4.0" or "5.0":

<24> Section 3.1.7.1.19: For Windows NT and Windows 2000, the queue manager uses the [MS-MQDS] protocol.

<25> Section 3.1.7.1.20: For Windows NT and Windows 2000, the queue manager uses the MSMQ: Directory Service Protocol [MS-MQDS].

<30> Section 3.1.7.1.24: For Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, the queue manager performs the following instead of generating a Send Change Notification ([MS-MQCN] section 3.3.4.1) event:

  • Define iComputerName as a string that will contain the NetBIOS name of the computer that hosts the queue that has been modified.

  • Extract the NetBIOS name of the computer that hosts the queue from the Pathname ADM attribute of the Queue ADM element instance representing that queue. Set iComputerName to this value. The processing rules for this extraction can be inferred from [MS-MQMQ] section 2.1.1.

  • Generate a Read Directory (section 3.1.7.1.20) event with the following arguments:
