for a particularly long reason, i had to format my exchange server without taking a backup of the server. I am now faced with a challenge. I have restored the server using setup /m:recoverserver
on installing the HUB Transport role it fails and says to view event log for error.
On the even log i see the below
Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGYSERVICE.EXE (PID=1136). Topology discovery failed, error 0x80040a02 (DSC_E_NO_SUITABLE_CDC). Look up the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) error code specified in the event description. To do this, use Microsoft Knowledge Base article 218185, "Microsoft LDAP Error Codes." Use the information in that article to learn more about the cause and resolution to this error. Use the Ping or PathPing command-line tools to test network connectivity to local domain controllers.
I have attempted various fix from sites to no avail. Kindly come to my rescue.
