I have 2 servers – server (DC) and server2 (Member). Initially server was setup as an AD DC running all apps and services. Recently I have added server2 for load balancing and in hopes of running Exchange 2000 on it. After joining server2 to the domain and verifying AD, DHCP and DNS replication I proceeded to install Exchange 2000 on server2. After running /forestprep and /domainprep the installation completed with success
After reboot replication errors started to occur and now replication fails with
Error Id 1265 - The DSA operation is unable to proceed because of a DNS lookup failure.
No Exchange information is replicating to PDC AD.
I have seen this posted before and the resolution was to promote server2 to PDC and then demote. Is there any other fix out there?
All services are running.
Yes I’ve tried the White Papers suggestions.
This is what I get with NlTest
Nltest /dsgetdc: /pdc /force /avoidself
DsGetDcName failed: Status = 1355 0x54b ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN
Please help me Obi-One.........
