Yes.

As long as it can contact a DC and a Global Catalog server (very important) then it's fine to run on a member server.

Hi there,

A. Best practices for Exchange server is that it is NOT installed on a DC was news to me but having researched futher this is ms way and to be honest having done it a few times makes perfect sense.

B. I had a problem very very similar so not sure if this will help but I would try it and the fix was crazy and from Microsoft themselves so here goes.

On the DC open up the default domain controller security settings
         Go to local policies / user rights assignments

Then about half way down - Manage auditing and security log

Double click this and add  group Exchange Enterprise Servers.

Click ok and then reboot your exchange server.

Now as I said this was a problem we had and it sounds very similar to yours so might not work but will do no harm.

Let me know how you get on.

Yes Off course It is possible to run exchange server without promoting ur server as domain controller.

It has to be a domin member server.

Make sure that the DNS is set correctly on the server.
It should be pointing to internal domain controllers ONLY for DNS. Exchange is very AD reliant, and if it cannot find a DC/GC then the machine will hang for what appears to be ages.
