i have three servers:

Machine A and Machine B are running windows 2000 advanced server(SP3).A and B are Domain controllers(DC), and Server A is Gloabal CatalogiGC).

Machine C is running exchange 2000 server enterprise eidtion (SP3) ,it's not a DC. the machine has two network interface cards,one link to the internet and the other link to intranet.

NOW I have troubles:

After the exchange 2000 server(machine C) running for a period of time(about one hour,NOT constant),it can not work.  and i reboot the machine, the exchange 2000 server will work,but after some time,it go into the same trouble.

the following is  ERROR Event ID in the application log of the exchange 2000 server:

Event ID: 2102----Process MAD.EXE (PID=1164). All Domain Controller Servers in use are not responding
Event ID: 2103----Process MAD.EXE (PID=1164). All Global Catalog Servers in use are not responding
Event ID: 9154----DSACCESS returned an error '0x80004005' on DS notification. Microsoft Exchange System Attendant will re-set DS notification later.
Event ID: 9098----The MAD Monitoring thread was unable to read its configuration from the DS, error '0x80041001'.

i use netdiag and dcdiag tools ,its result is passed.

i need your help.

0x80041001 = WBEM_E_FAILED


Also, it looks like you may have a policy running that is killing the "Manage auditing and security logs" permission. You said it runs for about an hour, then goes down?

Run policytest.exe, and see what comes back. This article pretty much nails your situation, I hope this is it:)


Let me know,

Here, this should keep you busy. some of this refers to 5.5, but same principle. you'll get the picture.

DNS on the FE, must point back thru the firewall, which means you have to open those ports. Point the MX record for your SMTP domain at the firewall, and then map port 25 from the firewall to your FE server. It will then forward the message to the mailbox. That's about it. definitely look at the link for the webcast, it's useful.
