Can't Access my Global Catalog
Posted on 2011-09-15
I inherited a network of 3 servers including:
ADserver.123.asi - Domain Controller & Active Directory
FileServer.123.asi - Also has a DC & AD
exchange.123.asi - Exchange Server
The problem I'm having is the 3rd server was taken off the domain (into a workgrou) put on another domain, taken off that (put into a workgroup) & then put back onto the domain - so it doesn't have any of the dmaoin permissions or associationes, etc... (all screwed up).
So since everything on it is broken - I'm trying to do a restore from tape. Now I put the tape restore to run & it can't authenticate any of the users.
So to I went to crete a new user in AD (to use w/ the tape backup) & it gave me a waring that the Global Catalog could not be reached & the service wasn't running.
Where do I look to see if the GC service is running & if it is, what do i look at after that to get the GC to work with the DC & AD so I can autheitcate & retstore the exchange server?
