451 4.4.0 Primary target IP address responded with: "451 5.7.3 Cannot achieve Exchange Server authentication."

In this post we will look at what this error means:

451 4.4.0 Primary target IP address responded with: "451 5.7.3 Cannot achieve Exchange Server authentication." Attempted failover to alternate host, but that did not succeed. Either there are no alternate hosts, or delivery failed to all alternate hosts.



Lets have a look in the SMTP Receive protocol logs:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpReceive

- We can see connections trying to be established from 10.4.8.1 (in a remote AD site) and 10.4.2.8 (in the same AD site)
- We can see the connections are hitting the receive connector SVR01\External
- The receive connector is terminating the connection with "Service closing transmission channel"

If we look at the receive connector "External" on SVR01 we notice that Exchange Server authentication is not enabled meaning SVR01 is not able to receive mail relay from other hub transport servers in the Exchange organisation.

If we tick the box we will resolve the problem.
