We have exchange 2003 running on serverB. We have shut down serverA to decommision it.
Server A was a DC but was demoted before shut down. Server B is a DC. Some, but not all users are experiencing approx one minute delays when starting outlook.This problem goes away if we restart server A and comes back when it is shut down again.
We have searhed in the outlook settings for any hard refernces to server A and removed them (e.g. archive.pst was listed as being on \\serverA\user_profiles\%username%). This has helped in some instances but there are still some experiencing problems, one in particular with theGlabal address list which hangs for about a minute when scrolling down it at about the half way point.
We have tried re creating the user profile by starting outlook and loading a new .prf file from the command line and this has made no difference.
I supect outlook or exchange is still refering to a file on serverA but have no idea what it is or how to find it.
Any help or clue would be much appreciated.
