When you enable archiving, content that is to be archived is first written to the destination queue in Message Queuing before it is stored in the SQL Server database. In this release, the message queue path name is predetermined. The message queue path name cannot be specified when you install Archiving Server nor can it be modified after the Archiving Server is installed. Although the message queue name is the same as the SQL Server database name by default, the two are not related.
