I started a transition from exchange 2003 to exchange 2007 and in the process i had to get rid of the Active Directory Controller. I am now running into issues with outlook not being able to recognize or find either the 2003 or 2007 exchange server although it can Ping both of them. I am wondering whether or not i need an ADC with my exchange 2007 in order for it to properly function. Any help would be great, thanks!

Exchange 2007 is even more reliant on Active Directory than Exchange 2003 was.   When you say "the Active Directory Controller" was that the only one?

No disrespect, but this has to be a joke.

alot of exchange functionality builds upon active directory removin the Domain controller holding the active directory will leave the exchange server seriously crippled. Unless your exchange server was a secondary ADC inwhich case you could sieze the fsmo roles and get everything working.

Jbaltz69, if it is such a joke to you then why wouldn't you help out? It seems to me that you are the joke.

Anyways, in order for me to install exchange 2007 the ADC had to be removed, and in checking the Active directory again i did not see any other ADC, i would have thought that exchange 2007 installation would have created a new ADC, how would i determine whether or not their are others?

I'm Sorry, its actually the Active Directory Connector not controller, that was a mix up! But exchange 2007 requires that all previous ADC's are removed before installation.
