Error 2140 when attempting to start Directory Synchronisation - Reinstall Exchange?
Posted on 2003-11-04
----NEW TO EXCHANGE----
I have had problems for quite some time while attempting to start the Microsoft Exchange Directory Synchronisation service.
The error that is displayed after attempting this is: "Error 2140: An internal Windows NT error has occurred."
What I believe I need to do, having spoken already with Microsoft support is to install a fresh copy of Exchange 5.5 but before I do that, I need to know exactly what files I need to backup apart from priv.edb, pub.edb and dir.edb and what I will need to do in order to have exchange restored with the same information (without relying on a tape-restore).
I also want to run consistency and redundancy checks on the priv.edb and pub.edb files while they are off-line, anything i should be considering before doing so?
This question is very urgent as several employees are now waiting on files through public folders that are not being replicated from our UK site.
Thanks in advance.
