When I reboot exchange it's been real slow to come back up so I looked at the even log I see the below...PDCS is global catalog enabled "check image" am I missing something?

NSPI Proxy can contact Global Catalog PDCS.AlliesInc.local but it does not support the NSPI service. After a Domain Controller is promoted to a Global Catalog, the Global Catalog must be rebooted to support MAPI Clients.  Reboot PDCS.Allinc.local as soon as possible.

to determine if it is a global catalog you must view the properties of of NTDS Settings under the server within AD Sites and Services

the domain controller must be rebooted after it is enabled as a GC

GC is checked there for about 4 month now do I need to reboot while exchange is on? because we has maintenance and we rebooted everything then I always reboot DCs then exchange and BES...etc

the server only needs to rebooted once for the gc role
you may want to run a dcdiag and look for errors

can you run this

dcdiag /v /e /TEST:DNS > c:\dcdiag1.txt
and upload that here

ok you have to run this from the DC

also the test didnt finish if you see the dcdiag - it was still running when you uploaded it.

dcdiag gives a summary in the end with a FAIL/PASS list.

thanks

I recently start seeing this issue with a startup delay and some DC, share errors I never had this link http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=267756 I set ESET service to manual rebooted exchange not a single error in the events

hi TITG

Did you check if your DNS services is set to start automatic ?
Dcdiag /fix had this error

 Starting test: Services
           Invalid service startup type: DnsCache on PDCS, current value
           DEMAND_START, expected value AUTO_START

Please monitor it for a day and see if 9176 returns.

thanks
