Exchange 2003, AD and Global Catalog
Posted on 2009-04-24
I have a Windows 2003 domain with 2 DCs: DC1 and DC2. DC2 is also an Exchange 2003 server
AD Global Catalog is only on DC1 and NOT on DC2/Exchange
I noticed that when DC1 is down, DC2/Exchange starts having problems looking for a Global Catalog server (Exchange errors in the event viewer application log). Problem is solved when DC1 is up again and DC2/Exchange find again a Global Catalog
Question: can I make my DC2/Exchange server a Global Catalog Server?
Is it possible to have 2 global catalog servers in the same domain ?
Is it recommended to make my DC2/exchange serveur a Global Catalog Server ?
