DSAccess selection? Question.
Posted on 2006-05-16
I have 3 Exchange 2003 servers in 3 offices around the globe. I only have Active Directory domain controllers and GCs in two of those 3 offices. This will soon be fixed. However, I noticed when checking with the Best practices analyzer that Exchange automatically selecting the DCs and GC to use but is making bad selections. For example, I have an Exchange 2003 server in New York, this server is selecting the local DC but is picking a GC in another country to use, rather than one of the two local GCs in that office. The response times from the GC its using are slow, and I'd rather it use the local servers. Is there any way to change options for how Exchange selects servers to use? I know I can manually set the servers to use, but I'd rather Exchange automatically select them in case names are changes or we add new servers. Does anyone have any input here?
