Using Exchange 2000 when the DC is down?
Posted on 2006-10-19
No sure if this can be done. I have two domains, let's call them domain1 and domain2. Both are Windows 2000 with an Exchange 2000 server in domain1.
What would happen to my exchange server if the domain1 DC went down? I have users in domain2 that are accessing mail on the exchange server in domain1. Since exchange is reliant on AD in it's domain, how could users in domain2 continue to get email from the exchange server in domain1? Is this possible? If so, how?
If an answer proves this is possible and gives me exact instructions on how to make this work I will award 500 points.
If an answer proves to me how this is not possible, I will award 125 points.
