Our exchange 2003 server is producing an event 8026 - LDAP Bind was unsuccessful on directory <DC previously demoted and removed from domain> for distinguished name ''. Directory returned error:[0x51] Server Down.    

The DC it it referring to was demoted and removed from the domain.  Any suggestions on how to resolve this error? - Just to note, exchange seems to be functioning fine, I just don't like unxplained errors in the log...

Please check if the domain DNS, the name server the demoted server is not listed. If it is please remove and check events.

My guess is that you will need to check the default receipient configuration under the exchange system manager.  Under Receipent - Receipient Update Service.  Browse to the new DC under the properties.  Make sure you update it (right click menu).

You can resolve this issue by following these steps:

   1. Open Exchange System Manager.
   2. Expand the Recipients container, and then click Recipient Update Services.
   3. Double-click each Recipient Update Service, and then change the Windows domain controller setting to the new Windows domain controller in the domain.

I love an easy solution.  Since you both submitted practically simultaniously, I split the points to be fair...
