Exchange and DC Maintenance
Posted on 2011-05-11
Running Exchange 2007 SP2 in a Windows 2008 environment.
All servers (DC's, GC's, and Exchange) are in a site named HQ.
We're planning on taking some of the DC'/GC's down for maintenance for a few hours, they need a hardware replacement.
How will Exchange cope with this? What I'm worried is that it will try to reach a DC/GC that is down, keep trying for 5 mins, give up and get another one that is down, try for 5 mins, etc etc until it finally finds one that is up and running.
