We have and Exchange 2007 server that does not allow users to access their mailboxes when one of our 2 DCs goes offline.  Both DCs in this site are configured and GCs  One DC is running Server 2008 SP2, the other is Server 2008 R2.

It sounds like those Exchange users are getting responded to by one the DC that is going down. Normally, users get distributed between multiple DC's when there is more than one available.

I'd check to see why no systems are getting picked up by the 2nd DC.

I'd also check the dns on the exchange server and see if it's using the same servers and the exchange users.
