On my network I have 2 DCs and 1 Exchange 2003 server.All are Win 2003 Std.
Both DCs are global catalogs and have a replica of DNS.

My problem is that when I shut down either DC1 or DC2 then my users cannot access the Exchange server. They get an "Exchange Server Unavailable" msg. The Exchange server shows event 8026, LDAP bind was unsuccessful.

I would presume that if I kept one DC operational that my Exchange server would still function.

Any ideas?
