Running Exchange 2007/2010 and AD 2003. One domain/forest.
We need to change some hardware on our PDC Emulator this weekend. The server will be down for about 30mins.
What is the best course of action, to move the role to another server or just take the hit and leave it off?
Secondly, what effect does a down PDC Emulator have on the other DC's in the domain?
Finally, the only application we need running over the weekend is email (Exchange and Blackberry). Will have the PDC offline have an effect on Exchange? Is it worth restarting anything once the PDC is up again (e.g. AD Topology service)?
