Major Help Needed -- Changed the IP Address if a DC / Exchange Server
Posted on 2004-11-16
I am a moron. I had to move my Domain Controller/Exchange server to my house for a while. I didn't think anything about it, I brought it up changed the IP address and rebooted. I messed around in the DNS area
Needless to say I am dead in the water.
I have a backup of the exchange from a couple days ago so worst case scenario I try to rebuild. But can anyone help me salvage my setup. I have seen people say I should have demoted it from a DC, but what would that do to Exchange?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I don't know if I can do 1000 points, but I'll try, and if you do help me and you come through Chicago, I'll buy you dinner.
I'm running Windows 2003 Server Enterprise and Exchange 2004 Enterprise.
