Mailboxes not being created...
Posted on 2008-06-16
I have a client who was running a Windows Server 2003 Small Business Server. They were not using Exchange because they did not how to configure it, etc. Another tech was hired before me and recommended to the owner that another dedicated Exchange server be built. Accordingly, a new server was ordered and Windows Server 2003 Standard was installed along with Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise edition. The new server was joined to the domain and the Exchange server was brought online. Next, the mailboxes were moved from the SBS Exchange server to the new Exchange server via the mailbox move wizard, without any error. Next, all Exchange services were turned off on the SBS server, leaving only one Exchange server.
Here is the issues: When I create a new user account ADCU on either the SBS server or the Exchange server, I am able to see the user account via the ADUC on the other sever but no e-mail boxes are ever created. I have verified that during the user account creation that it is selected to create an Exchange mailbox on the proper server.
I have been troubleshooting this issue for 2 days without luck. Any help is greatly appreciated.
