Hello,

how many DC's do you have ? how about creating new database and taking backup, did it work?

try to ping and nslookup all the dc's.

also run a command --> in CMD ---> type ---> set L.
this will tell us which DC is used as Logon server. Is that DC in the same site of exchange?

we will also run dcdiag and netdiag to check the communication between the exchange and DC's.

Regards,
:)

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Hi jawad1481, and thanks for the reply's.

The amount of disk space on the MDBDATA drive is: 388GB
on C: drive is 8GB out of 40GB.

As for the EXBPA, strangely as it may sounds, it's connecting to the AD and start the scan, but in the results  is claims that "Exchnage server cannot be contacted"..

Any ideas?
Needless to say that the Exch is fully operational, sending and receiving.
