Hello,

I've been having some issues with a DC on my network and I just logged on to my exchange and got a pop-up.

 Exchange error
Now, I have a primary DC that is working fine, but my old primary DC is coming back with errors. Please see my Comment/post - User account cannot be found in Active Directory

I appreciate anyones help.

Thanks,

nimdatx

open exchange management console go to org config, and in the top right hand side select modify configuration controller...point it to  a known working directory server (preferably a GC) close EMC and reopen

Would that have hurt anything or stopped mail flow?

I had some users that complained that their ActiveSync on iphone was asking for username/password and wasn't working. Can you take a look at my other ticket in regards to Active Directory issue? Weird things have been happening since my second DC has failed. Thanks so much.
