Hi Experts,

Any help from below

Process MAD.EXE (PID=2040). Exchange Active Directory Provider has discovered the following servers with the following characteristics:
 (Server name | Roles | Enabled | Reachability | Synchronized | GC capable | PDC | SACL right | Critical Data | Netlogon | OS Version)
file.bk.local      CDG 1 7 7 1 0 1 1 7 1
domain.bk.local      CDG 1 7 7 1 0 1 1 7 1

I have restarted AD topology services but this does not help either.

Also my Exchange server is running low of virtual memory 8.77%. I have 10GB of RAM and 2.00GHz
This is my current settings any ideas

C: Page File Size MB 100-100
E: Logs               MB  15255-15255
F: Database        MB

See screenshots also.

Many thanks for helping.

Take the page file off the C drive and have just the one.
Turn off the option that makes you have the page file of a certain size on the C drive (I can't remember which it is now, store a copy of the dump file maybe). Then reboot.

Change the page file on the E drive to the recommended size.

On how to do what?

When you attempt to remove the page file from the C drive you will probably get a prompt about a feature either being disabled or needs to be disabled. Follow the prompt.

Changing the page file isn't exactly going to cause a great deal of problems. Might slow the machine down a bit and generate a few errors, but that is about it.
