easy Exchange 2000 /Domain Controller quesion

How do you switch which DC an exchange server is connecting to.  I know how to view it: Exchange System Manager, servers, servername, properties "domain controller used by services on this server" will list the current DC your exchange server is connect to.  I though that if you changed the recipent update service domain controller that it would change it,, but it doesn't. Does anyone know how to?

thanks

You can manually set the exchange servers by unchecking the auto-discover box in the location you mentioned above ... you can change the DC, GC, and Config servers for each exchange server ...

If you are removing the old DC ... then you'll need to make sure you modify the RUS to point to a different DC ... you can do this by opening system manager > go to recipients > recipient update service > open the properties of the RUS and then browse to a new DC

btw ... you'll need to click on the directory access tab in the servername properties ... then click on the drop down box to select Domain Configuration, Global Catalog, or Domain Controller ... then you can uncheck the auto-discover box and manually set the DC,GC or Config ...
