Trust Relationship Failure between exchange server 2010 and DC
Posted on 2010-09-01
I was going thru the steps of removing an old exchange 2003 from our network recently. In the morning when I tried to login to the new exchange server 2010 I recieved an error and could not get into the domain administrator account on the 2010 exchange. "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed". I searched online and there is much stated about reset of the exchange sever account in the DC (windows 2008 (32bit)). Email is working inbound and outbound on the exchange 2010. The 2003 exchange server is still up and running I have two more steps to complete (removing the recipient update service and then removing exchange thru add/remove programs) before I completely remove the old exchange 2003 fom the network. The old server 2003 functioned as a primary DC in the past. Now the new primary DC is a server 2008. I can login to the exchange 2010 via local administrator, but not on the domain administrator, nslookup from the local admin shows correct dns and domain. If I reset the exchange server 2008 AD account will that stop my email flow, if it does not log back in the domain for some reason? Is there any other way I can get my domain administrator account to allow login to my exchange 2010 box?
