    SBS2003 SE – SP1 updated, now receiving 6 similar errors in the Directory
    Services Log, all events repeat every 30 mins.

    Nothing ‘weird’ yet reported on the server, but google and the MS newsgroups
    are quite vague on the solutions to fix.

    Is this a PSS call? – or can anyone shed any SBS related light , vague
    references from exchange and server2000 are about.

    Quite lot of the info is a little deep for me to blindly wade into, and
    none seems specific to this issue

    Internal error: The security descriptor propagation task encountered an
    error while processing the following object. The propagation of security
    descriptors may not be possible until the problem is corrected.


    CN=OWAScratchPad{AF381678-F6DD-4921-8DB6-362F4DF8D86A},CN=Microsoft Exchange
    System Objects,DC=**domain**,DC=local

    Additional Data

    Error value:

    -1112 []

    Internal ID:


    Anyone any pointers? – the server only has 2 users! And a light loading.

    Bit the bullett, followed it, and hoped there was nothing 'sbs-breaking' and
    tada, deleted 7000 odd proxies.

    just needed a bit of reassurance that was the correct path to follow. -
    thanks Les

    I am experiencing the same issue:

    I went into adsiedit and under the microsoft exchange system edit I the cn
    name it was talking about:

    globalevents 67186673

    I went into the properties of this and found the proxy address list as
    referenced by the microsoft article:


    I see several thousand entries such as the following:

    fax:[email protected]"mydomainname".com

    I replaced my domain name with the phrase about for security purposes.

    Is it safe to delete these several thousand enties?

    I followed the kb (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318774)to the letter,
    although it was not an _ issue, but a username with an incrimental hex number
    after the name, used the badproxies.txt file, verified, made the relevant
    changes and ran the tool to clean up the AD, everything it DID error, but on
    re-running the ldifde command all the 'wierd names' had gone, server now does
    not error.

    good luck, the imports and ldife -i -f delproxies cmd takes minutes to run,
    not seconds.
