Exchange 2003 ENT does not find secnd DC/GC server
Posted on 2009-02-23
I have 2 DC (win2k3), 1 exchange 2003 ent. in my network. 2 DCs are also DHCP and DNS. (A and B is name of the 2 DCs) A DC is PDC and Exchange works happily with A DC but not with B DC. If somehow A DC is not responding exchange will stop working, I can see that outlook 2003/2007 have disconnect status on them. I right clicked on properties of exchange server under systems manager, under directory access tab there are no servers registered. But if DC A is up then I can see DC A is listed as directory access server for all types likes of DC, GC, Config.
Could you guys please shed some light on why that exchange does not pick up B DC as directory access server. This issue is bugging me for past few months, any pointers will be appreciated.
