Exchange Server stops when One Particular DC is offline

Hi,

On two Exchange Servers (in seperate domains & forests) our team manage and administrate they are both dependant on one DC in their respective domain & forest.

If this particular DC is off, the exchange system stops. There are other DC's running in each domain but they dont seem to be able to support the exchange server.

Both sites are running in Native mode.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what services exchange is using on this DC ?

Thanks

Andrew

Open the System Manager, select the server, click "Properties", and select the "Directory Access" tab.  In there you will see which DCs are being used for directory access.  Exchange will automatically determine which DCs to use, but you can manually set that if you want (although Microsoft recommends that you don't).

Hi,

Thanks for that.

I have setup an additional Global Catalog server (there was only one before). I notice there is only one Configuration Domain Controller listed.

Can I setup a second Config DC as well ?

Thanks
