DS_E_COMMUNICATIONS_PROBLEM

We have Exchange 5.5 SP4 on a NT4 server and have installed the exchange admin tools on a Win2k server.

However when trying to connect the admin tools to the exchange server, we get DS_E_COMMUNICATIONS_PROBLEM errors.

Rather urgent, 500 points !

You are going to need to run ADC in order to connect from a server properly.  Install instructions can be found here.

The reason is that Exchange 5.5 does not integrate directly with AD and thus you must emulate a connection through the ADC.
