How do we come to know that which exchange server is using which GC server?

How do we come to know that which exchange server is using which GC server? Is is possible to configure an Exchange Server to use the service of a particular GC server?

If you're using Exchange 2003 you can go to the properties of a server in Exchange System Manager. click on the directory services tab. There you will see all of the available DC/GC's. You'll also see an option there to turn off automatic discovery and manually define the GC.

Hi Wiredawg,

You are right indeed! I found the settings and changed it manually. Thanks for your help.

Hi,

Actually I also needed the command to find out the same. So if you can send me the command version to find out the GC who is servicing a particular Exchange Server, then it'll be highly appreciable..

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

This is great article that talks to how DSaccess works,.

I know you were interested in a command line tool to view this information. There is a tool called DSADIAG that basically provides similar information in regard to what you see in the ESM GUI on the Directory Access tab. It's not an easy tool to come by, if you're interested and can't seem to locate it let me know and I'll see what I can come up with.

Hi Wiredawg,

Thanks alot for the quick reply. I read lot of articles on this tool, and then tried alot to find out the tool, including my Exchange Server 2003 Resource Kit CD, but had a hard luck. I am unable to locate this tool. And another interesting thing I learnt that prior to th release of Exch2000 SP2 we had to use this tool. So do you feel that this tool has been wiped out permanently?

I suspect so. It really didn't provide much more service than the GUI did.
