MS Exchange 2007

I repeatedly get eventid: 2142 and 2501 and they look like this.
2142: MSExchange ADAccess
Process IISIPM779744C5-579B-42B3-AAAF-75C19C5AFD08 -AP "MSEXCHANGEOWAAPPPOOL (PID=2332). Topology discovery failed, error 0x8007077f.

2501: MSExchange ADAccess
Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGY (PID=1436). The site monitor API was unable to verify the site name for this Exchange computer - Call=DsGetSiteNameW Error code=800703e5. Make sure that Exchange server is correctly registered on the DNS server.

I have one exchangeserver 3 AC/GC servers in two sites. Output from policytest is.

===============================================
Local domain is "domain1.no" (DOMAIN1)
Account is "DOMAIN1\Exchange Enterprise Servers"
========================
  DC      = "SERVER3"
  In site = "Site1"
  Right found:  "SeSecurityPrivilege"
========================
  DC      = "SERVER6"
  In site = "Site1"
  Right found:  "SeSecurityPrivilege"
========================
  DC      = "NEUSAAD"
  In site = "Site2"
Right found:  "SeSecurityPrivilege"

Dnsdiag dont give me anything either.

I have a setup wher I forward all mail to people in site two to a different (kerio) mail server and they have their clients connected to that server. They experience periodicly delays in their e-mails. Days and even weeks for some mail. Does anybody have any idea how to fix this issue.

Please verify below settings.
ADD exchange domain & exchange enterprise group to Group policy applied on domain controller ou,
Computer Configuration>Windows Settings>Security Settings>Local Policy>User Rights Assignment>Manage auditing and security log.
Exchange must be able to find Global catalogue & dns lookup should be working fine.
If its exchange 2007 install SP2.

Is it likely that this error can be responsible for all the delays and strange behavior on some IMAP? (Mail is disappearing and comes back again)

Ideally its Exchange servers group for Exchange 2007 and Exchange Enterprise servers for Exchange 2003 .... Good that its gone ..
Look if Exchange cannot bind itself to a Site then its going to cause issues for sure its good that atleast Exchange was working had you rebooted or Restarted the services it would have gone down ...

(Mail is disappearing and comes back again) ??

There is a very good site to test exchange connectivity.

https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com/

Test the mail flow & it will give you complete detail like where is the delay & route for mail flow.

Smtpdiag is also a good tool.

I split the point here. It was several issues. I had some old sitenames in the dns. I upgraded it to SP2 and everything is working perfect now. Thanks for putting me in the right direction.
