I am installing Exchange 2010 on a 2008 standard Server platform. The server has been installed as a member server and has been in place for 4 week with no issues. It does not have the "AD" role installed. it is a member of the domain(single domain) 64bit with NAV 10.x installed. it is on the same LAN as the DC.
The DC has DHCP & DNS as well as "AD" roles and has been in please for 8 months with no issues
I am now installing Exchange 2010 on the member server. The prerequisites all passed except for the following error:
"Setup encountered a problem while validating the state of Active Directory. Could not find any Domain Controller in domain "CompanyDomain.local"
I am at the end of my rope with this and need some guidance from anyone who has experienced and this.
