Need Exchange 2010 to see two Domain Controllers

Posted on 2011-10-26

Hi all,

I recently did an Exchange 2010 migration from Exchange 2003. Everything is working appropriately and the Exchange 2003 server was successfully removed. During the migrations there were several bumps along the way and during troubleshooting a command was entered that forced the Exchange server to look at only one of the domain controllers. Now, if I reboot the domain controller that Exchange is looking at (DC01) all of the endusers are unable to connect to the Exchange server via Outlook.

I need the command that will let Exchange see both DCs which hold the GC role so when one DC is rebooted Outlook users can still send and receive email.

Thank you in advance.

    go to the Exchange server properties and configure it to automatically detect and connect to domain controllers.

    Doing that only allows you to select one domain controller. I need to be able to select both of them.
