After exchange migration

Hi,

We currently have a w2k domain, that i have joined a w2k3 enterprise server as a member server. I have succesfully installed exchange into our organisation, and see both servers within ESM. I have moved a test mailbox and my own onto the new exchange (exchange enterpise 2003). I can send and receive emails fine. However whenever i first load up outlook, it says that it is retrieving information from server02(the new email server). It does this everytime i open up outlook. This takes around thirty seconds. It does not do this on our old exchange server 2000.

Is this normal? is it because the global catalog etc are on the old server and that it takes a little longer to authenticate?

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Paul

Greetings Again Paul,

My be because you have cached mode on, try turning this off in the email set up in outlook.

Regards

Hi again Patrick ;)

we currently use outlook xp so the cached mode is not available in this version.

Ahhh i see well as you say its not the cached mode then.

Not to familiar with the ins and outs of the XP version but i'd guess its prob just the outlook looking for changes and authenticating over the network.

Have you installed this on another computer yet and if so does it do the same thing.

Have you installed all the service packs for the outlook 2003 if not you can pick them up here:

Select the 2002 version from the menu and it has a link to all 3 service packs.

Hey patrick,

Yes ive tried another machine, same thing. Just applied the latest service pack, same thing. Interestingly enough, ive just moved a mailbox, who uses outlook 2003, and it starts up like a dream. Im going to upgrade my outlook and see if it does the same thing.

ill keep you posted

cheers

Outlook 2003 is a nice piece of software.

Let me know how it goes

Do you have just one global catalog? I've noticed that especially with Exchange 2003 you really need two global catalogs to handle the load. Configuring a second and third one has made huge leaps in response time for some of my customers.

Hi,

Well i put 2003 on and it works fine, no problems or slowness what so ever. Bizare! As for GC yes we only hve one, and only have two servers. Is there a way of making the second server a GC without promoting it to a domain controller, as ive read that exchange is better on a member server rather than a domain controller.

cheers

Hey

Probably not a good idea to run exchange on a DC I agree if you only have the exchange server that you could promote, leave it as just exchange and upgrade to Outlook 2003 for the users who are still on 2002.
