Troubleshooting actions:
-Re-install the Exchange system manager on the Exchange server.
If that doesn't solve the problem,
-(re-)run "setup.exe /domainprep" from the Exchange setup CD.

I just had this issue as well

This was a dns issue with us.

On your exchange server take off any external ip address, set that up in your dns servers as a forwarder.
set all your dc, dns to point to them self and set the secondaries to point to each other

in other words all your servers should share only internall dns use dns forwarder for external.  Allow dns to replicate dynamically.

the setup.exe /domainprep is usally done for security

Good luck

Hi all,

Thanks for the suggestions, but I managed to fix the problem on my own after trying a number of solutions. Apparently, the Admin's roaming profile was corrupt on this server. I had to login on the server with the machine off the network and delete the loaclly catched profile; then I restarted and it managed to re-create the profile and all was ok.
