Exchange 2003 MSEchangeAL event ID 8026
Posted on 2006-06-01
I found some reference on this site regarding this problem, but did not seem to locate an actual resolution. I was hoping someone could lend a hand regarding the message ID.
I seem to be getting this message quite often, multiple times a minute. We are currently running 1 Windows 2000 Server DC, one Windows 2003 Server DC, and one Exchange 2003 server. Both DC's are also Global Catalogs I am receiveing this error message on the exchange server and it references both domain controlers in the message description.
I did see some reference to Port 389 and testing connectivity between my DC and my exchange server. Here is what i discovered if this helps.
In Exchange system Manager i am showing LDAP ports of 389 for my DC's and port 3268 for my GC's (both are represented here)
From Exchange server to both DC's i can telent on both ports (389 and 3268)
From both DC's to Exchange i cannot telent on either port.
Do I need to open these ports for LDAP bind to occur? If so, then how do I open those ports?
