Hi,
You can check what dc's are being used by exchange by opening exchange management console and choosing 'Client Access' from the Server configuration.  Right click on your server and choose properties. In the 'sytem settings' tab it will show the dc's and gc's that are being used.

This will show all the DC/GC servers in that site.

User wants to know, to which DC, server is authenticating and Set L can tell that easily.

1) have an exchange 2007 domain for example sake called abc.com.  Our company however is called xyz.com.  Historically we have utlized both abc.com and xyz.com names in our SAN certificate however we are no longer able to utilize the abc.com domain externally.  Can split brain DNS help me?


2)  Would like to know the name of the DC with which CAS server is authenticating or is connected.
Any command / method to verify this?

-Open Exchange Management Console
-Server Configuration > Client Access > Select Server name from Right Side pane
-Properties > System Settings.

Here you would find list of domain controllers and Global Catalog Server to which CAS connects for LDAP queries.

Amit, I believe this command will not show the DC from where CAS communicate for LDAP query, rather this will force CAS to send LDAP query to that DC only.

Kindly correct if I am wrong.
