    Hi,
    You should enable the Direct Metabase Edit before doing any changes to the
    xml file.

    This option is - IIS-> Properties of the server.

  3. Hello Wang,

    Thank you for posting to the SBS Newsgroup.

    I understand that you encounter error 51228 on the SBS Server.

    Thanks a lot for Lisa's input!

    Based on my research, the issue can be caused if one or more of the
    following conditions are true:

    1. The configuration information cannot be saved because insufficient disk
    space exists.
    2. A write lock exists on the Metabase.xml file.

    I suggest that you perform the steps in the KB902161 to see how it goes.

    902161 Event 51228 is logged in the System log, and changes are not saved
    to the Metabase.xml file after you make configuration changes in IIS 6
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=902161

    If the issue persists, please help me to gather following information for
    research:

    a. On the SBS Server, go to Start -> Run "services.msc" (without quotation
    marks), restart the IIS Admin Service, will the issue disappear?
    b. What is the tool you use to save the Metabase, please? For example,
    MBExplorer or Backup/Restore Configuration.
    c. Is your SBS 2K3 Server working correctly? Can your Exchange Server
    send/receive emails? Is there any symptom on your SBS Server?
    d. When did the issue occur? Did you have this issue before? If no, did you
    make any changes or install any updates/software on the SBS Server
    recently?

    Hope it helps! If you have further updates, please feel free to let me
    know. I am looking forward to hearing from you!

    Best regards,

    Brandy Nee
