MSExchangeDSAccess Event ID 2103
Posted on 2006-10-23
My exchange server 2003 installation has been a bit quirky. I seem to get this error alot. Exchange 2003 is installed on a member server. I also have a Primary domain controller (PDC1) and a seperate backup domain controller (BDC1). This error states that "All Global Catlog servers in use are not responding" PDC1@Domain.local in reference to MAD.exe
However some successful App Log entries for MSExchangeDSAccess report that "DSAcces will user servers from the follwing list: BDC1@domain.local Cofiguration Domain controller is set to: BDC1@domain.local. in reference to inetinfo.exe
Should it be refrencing my Backup domain controller at all? Also I continue to get the error entry every 20mins referencing the same Mad.exe program. What have I done wrong here. It seems to be causing Outlook some issues. When users open outlook they get the "requesting information" message for a longtime before outlook opens. Then sometimes it opens really quickly.
Note: All installation steps (/forestprep and /domainprep) were done on the Exchange member server.
Thanks in advance
