New Exchange 2003 not showing in 5.5 Admin, question about ADC.
Posted on 2006-06-19
I've got an existing Exchange 5.5 site, several Exchange 2003 servers have been successfully installed into the Existing Exchange 5.5 site. I have the ADC running on the first Exchange 2003 server I installed. I've installed several since then and now have 4 running. I just went to install the 5th Exchange 2003 server and noticed that once setup was complete and Exchange was running on the new box, I could not see the new server in the Exchange 5.5 Admin. I can see it in the Exchange 2003 admin no problem. I suspect the problem is with the ADC or SRS. I've restarted the SRS service and its still not working. So I'm leaning towards a replication problem from AD to Exchange 5.5. I have tried forcing replication on my existing connection agreements but still no success. I am going to reboot the Exchange 2003 server running the ADC in hopes it will correct the issue, but was wondering if anyone else had seen this before? I verified network connectivity to and from all Exchange servers and thats all fine. The Exchange 2003 install went fine with no errors. If the reboot doesn't work, I'm going to try re-creating my connection agreements in the ADC. If that doesn't work I'm going to try uninstalling Exchange 2003 from the new box and re-installing.
Has anyone else seen this before and if so what did you do to resolve it? Any tips or advice?
