Frequent ExchangeRouter errors - login problems - showed in the Application Event Viewer.


There was a user account used for logon to a server and to run a GWEX gateway.
Then on the Exchange server, in a System manager, corresponding gateway connector was configured with some other user account in API UNC path definition.
Moreover, the GWEX was installed under a dedicated secondary domain MTA that run on the Exchange server as a service with another user account.
Once all services were reconfigured to use the same user account, all services started without problems.
