ok, I'm having GAL and GCS problems.
We killed a child domain out at the High School a few days ago. I did DCPROMO and the two servers came out fine, but I lost my GCS. So, I moved the GC to my PDC to get me thru.
After I moved the GC to my PDC, I began to get events stating that the two roles (PDC & GCS) were incompatible. I also began to have major problems with my Exchange Server and my users in Outlook failing to pull down the GAL. I'm getting the 0x8004010F error doing the send/receive download GAL thing.
So, I'm guessing that since all of my grief began when I moved my GCS to my storage server that I need to move it somewhere else. I can't use my PDC, but I can make my Exchange Server my GCS and I'm hoping that will fix my GAL problems. I've noticed that since I demoted the two child domain servers and deleted all of the associated users, their mailboxes are still there and their names are still in my local GAL since my Exchange server is not sending down the updated GAL to my users.
So, your thoughts?
OH, my question. My Exchange server does not have NTDS settings for me to set it as my GCS. How can I get those NTDS settings there?
