msExchESEParamMaxOpenTables is an attribute of storage groups. The recommended value for this attribute also changed periodically throughout the life of Exchange 2000. In Service Pack 2, the default value was automatically set to 42500 on four-way systems and 85000 on eight way systems. In Service Pack 3, this was changed to 13800 and 27600, respectively. If you do find a value set for
msExchESEParamMaxOpen Tables on any Exchange 2000 storage group, regardless of its value you will want to return the value for this attribute back to <Not Set > prior to upgrading to Exchange 2003.
