Getting error every minute. I've searched and tried a few things with the permissions but didn't have much luck. Errors are on Windows 2000 DC, coming from Exchange server. The email server used to be a BDC pretty long time ago and has been demoted since with no errors afterwards, and these started up out of nowhere some time ago

Thanks folks

Let me get this correct, the Exchange server used to be a domain controller and you demoted it?
That is an unsupported action and will often break Exchange.
I suspect that the errors are in relation to its former role. There will probably be little that you can do about it - the only thing I would suggest would be to swing the data out to a new machine and rebuild the original as a member server.

Yes - we have a main server/DC, and for a couple months I kept the exchange 2000 machine as a DC as well - it worked without a problem, but then i read up that its not recommended to keep exchange 2000 as DC, so I demoted it. We have two servers total, the main / DC and the exchange. Everything still continued to run fine

This was maybe 8 months ago? We haven't had any issues but now there's some odd glitches with regards to sending / opening email with someone else's credentials, and this event log failure, so I figured I'd start with this

I do have some new larger faster hard drives that I need to put in, so do you just suggest I rebuild it from scratch?

Any comments as far as what to name the new server? can it create glitches if i name it the same as what it currently is, or better to use a new name?

Thanks sembee the exchange guru!

When it comes to rebuilding I tend to suggest swinging the data out to another machine.

The alternatives are too high a risk.
If you want to change the hard disks as well, then it would seem that you have the perfect excuse, if you can find another machine that can take the data while you make the move. You could use the same machine name, as long as you remove Exchange in the correct way and drop the machine from the domain before you wipe the machine. It is something I do for clients a couple of times a year - it just takes careful planning.

The main server is an SBS 2000 install (1 server setup when i came here) so moving mailboxes there isn't a problem, and per your advice, I will do that.

Disjoin machine from domain before wiping it? Ok, got it. Going to do it this weekend

Appreciate the help, Thanks
