ive been reading some posts but nothing to my specific problem/question...
when we create users on SBS (clients with stand alone exchange works fine) sometimes thier email account doesnt get created. not just the exchange mailbox, but the email address and account info under the properties of the user account---- until we reboot. other times it might take 10-15 mins before the account shows up in the properties but a number of times we've had to wait til after hours and reboot the server for the info to show up, or if its an important person that needs this account setup right away, we have to call everyone in world to make sure they stop accessing documents or whatnot and reboot.
anyone know if there is a patch or fix or is this normal? i dont think its normal because it doesnt happen to ALL our clients with SBS but this is what we determined so far:
-ALL of the above situation only happens in SBS
-NOT ALL SBS's are effected
-NOT all users are effected on the effected SBS's
we've tried restarted the exchange service but that doesnt work, we've logged on the user in/out, user being created was a copy of a "template" user which has worked in the past (again, this doesnt happen all the time, but we use this template all the time to create the users).
if anyone knows about this or has heard about it let me know, even if theres no solution I'd like to hear that we're not the only ones experiencing this problem. but so far i couldnt find anything of the same on here.
