For Message Queuing servers and independent clients, the local machine is the local computer. However, for Message Queuing dependent clients, the local machine is the client's supporting server.

See also supporting server.

lookup identifier

A 64-bit identifier that is assigned to the message when the message is placed in the queue. Each identifier in the queue is unique, and is greater than the identifier of the previous message and less than the identifier of the next message in the queue.

The local queue manager generates the lookup identifier and sets the lookup identifier property of the message (PROPID_M_LOOKUPID or MSMQMessage.LookupId) whenever it places a message in a queue

LQS file

A text file that describes a queue. This file is created when the queue is created, and it is stored on the same computer as the queue. LQS files are located in the …\MSMQ\Storage\Lqs folder.
