Problems after Exchange 2003 Domain Controller demoted
Posted on 2012-09-05
I'm visiting a supported site tomorrow where someone has demoted a Domain Controller that was running their only Exchange 2003 Server. Issues include Exchange Services not starting, Exchange Server Manager not starting and RDP access failing. First thought is to try promoting it back but wondered on the wisdom of this? The Information Store is safe and backed up on another Server, Exchange Server name I have but not the Exchange 2003 Site name which from memory I need for a recovery build.
I had hoped to get remote access prior to visiting but this is impossible. Has anyone been there and fixed this type of problem? Suggestions very welcome.
