I have inherited a cobbled together network and need to integrate more computers from the company that took over the company.
It has an SBS 2003 server acting as domain controller,DNS server and DHCP server, a W2K serverused for SQL and an SBS2008 which is being used for Exchange.
This means that Exchange is on a different Domain.
The computers that were on site use XP / Outlook 2007 and connect to the Exchange server.
When adding computers (XP / Outlook 2K3) they join the domain ok but when connecting Outlook 2K3 to the Exchange 2007 mailserver they dont connect then when I select retry they do connect but are very slow and keep losing connection.
I think it may be a DNS problem but any suggestions are welcome.
Thanks in advance.
That's a mess. It would be best if you got migrated entirely to SBS 2008. Also W2K server is no longer supported by Microsoft it should be replaced/upgraded to Windows 2008 or higher too. Otherwise the
Network Monitoring is essential to ensure that computer systems and network devices are running. Use PRTG to monitor LANs, servers, websites, applications and devices, bandwidth, virtual environments, remote systems, IoT, and many more. PRTG is easy to set up & use.
