I have the following configuration:
Windows Server SBS 2008 with Exhange 2007.
Every other week I have errors in evenlogs saying exchange can not contact local domain controller OR can not concat Global Catalog... I read somewhere if you re-run setup /prepareAD the issue will get fixed.  Is it safe to re-run this command in a working Exchange 2007 envirnment? YOur input would be greatly appreciated.
