I'm getting event ID 2115 in the application log of my Exchange 2003 server quite often. Here is the exact event:

Process INETINFO.EXE (PID=804). DSAccess needs to close a connection to the Domain Controller xxx.xxx.xxx due to error 0x80040920

I'm wondering if anyone has seen this before and if it should cause me concern?

"The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) lookup, which is returning 0x80040920, is DSC_W_LDAP_NO_SUCH_OBJECT. DscRead() failed, error = 0x80040920."

Ouch. check the Deleted Objects in AD, and see if the computer account was ever deleted and recreated. If I were you, and I respect your knowledge and ability, this would bother me. Anyone playing around in your stuff, jjmck?

If you run netdiag and dcdiag, you're probably going to get a good idea of what's going on here. did a security policy change, or have you added a GC? Moved a server role? What about DNS, are the servers configured only for internal DNS, no external?

I think I may have discovered the problem.  On one of the DCs in this site, there were some services which were stopped, including the Intersite Messaging service. I've rebooted the server and run dcdiag and everything appears to check out OK now. I'm going to monitor the event log on the Exchange server closely to make sure these errors don't reappear, but so far, so good.

Thanks,

Yeah, it only appeared sporadically. Must have been when the Exchange server tried to contact that DC. Can I ask where you found the details of that error? I seached high and low and couldn't find any explanation.

the artcile itself didn't really apply, except that it explained the error. From that, it was easy to see that you had lost a DC, or couldn't contact it. sometimes, you gotta go around your elbow to get to your ear :)

Hello,
I am having this same problem at the moment. I get the error 2115, closely followed by an error 2111 (Process INETINFO.EXE (PID=5552). Received LDAP error 0x52 from Directory Server myserver due to Kerberos ticket timeout.) Does anyone have some information on what to do about these errors? I read the article linked to in one of the above posts, and I am concerned that there are some incorrectly deleted object in my AD. Seeing as I did not set up this server I do not know if this is the case.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!
