Cannot find Global Catalog
Posted on 2010-08-26
I manage a small 80+ user shop with a single domain controller and a seperate, dedicated Exchange server. (All 2003, Sp2)
When running Active Directory Users & Computers on anyother system, other than the DC, I run into error warnings.
For example, when clicking on the 'Members' tab of a security group, I get this message:
"A global catalog cannot be located to retrieve the icons for the members list..."
This does NOT happen when I am using ADUC on the Domain Controller.
What could prevent Global Catalog from being available to other member servers or workstations? (Yes, Global Catalog IS checked in NTDS settings in ADSS -- there is only 1 DC.) I sometimes get similar errors from Outlook.
BTW, Exchange is working fine -- but there are problems when adding new users mailboxes when I use the ADUC on the exchange server. Fine when on DC.
Thanks in advance!!!
