Active Directory connector

I have performed a NT 4.0 migration to 2003 Active Directory.  Everything is working well except a few small bugs.  I repeatedly get this error in the event viewer on my 2k3 domain controller

LDAP Bind was unsuccessful on directory ntbackup.foxborolm.local for distinguished name 'FOXBOROLM\Administrator'. Directory returned error:[0x51] Server Down.   (Connection Agreement 'Public Folders: foxborolm.local - FOXBOROLM\Rodman Lincoln Merc' #2124)

Ntbackup was used for an in place upgrade and has since been dcpromo'd back down.  I no longer need it for anything.  What is the best way to remove it or can I remove the Active Directory Connector totally?

    I would run dcdiag and netdiag

    They come on the 2nd windows cd

    These program can fix or help fix most Active Directory Prolems

    Accepted Solution

    If you no longer have users on Exchange 5.5 you can just uninstall the Active Directory Connector.  If you still have 5.5 users, delete and recreate the public folder connection agreement using the ADC admin tool.
