Help! We recently had an Exchange 2010 server built before i took over the project. Somehow, our forest functionality level was only at 2000, and they were somehow able to get Exchange 2010 installed. However, it has been spitting random errors ever since. This is not a production machine. We have a 2003 Ent Exchange Server currently holding all of our user mailboxes. I am simply trying to get it fixed enough to uninstall it, and reinstall it correctly. Here is what I'm running into:
The 2010 machine is running on a VMWare host, Server 2008 DC R2, 64BIT, 6GB RAM Exchange 2010 Standard
I am getting multiple errors, and the information store is not mounting. I need the store to mount so i can delete the 2 mailboxes listed in there, so i can delete the connector to the 2003 machine, so I can break it away, and uninstall it from the domain gracefully.
My questions are this: How do I fix the issue with the Error ID 5003 about the clock? I only saw a couple other posts on it, and the machines in question must have been physical boxes... Mine is a VM. The error reads:
Unable to initialize the Information Store service because the clocks on the client and server are skewed. This may be caused by a time change either in the client or the server, and may require a reboot of that computer. Verify that your domain is properly configured and is currently online.
Second, how do i get the connector on the 2010 machine removed so it will disconnect from my 2003 machine and not disrupt traffic currently moving?
