EMERGENCY!!!Need help with Exchange 5.5 and Active Directory
Posted on 2004-11-13
Here is my architecture
Server1: Tooltime - Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP4
Runs Active Directory for the domain "EMARKETCAPITAL", this is our internal for user logins, etc..
Server 2: EMCCORP - Windows 2000 Server SP4
Runs Exchange Server 5.5 SP4
This server was setup in its own domain "EMCPHX" though it connects to Active Directory on Tootltime for user accounts.
To make a long story short, Tooltime is shot and I might have to install Windows 2000 Advanced Server again and do the following:
Re-Install Active Directory in the "EMARKETCAPITAL" domain since there is no other domain controller
Re-DNS, though there is a backup, but its bind 9 on another server
My main question how can I start receiving mail again? without tooltime running, I cant authenicate to the mail server. Do I have to reconfigure Exchange 5.5 somehow?
Hope this makes sense.
Thanks in advance.
