Hello All,
I am encountering a problem which causes lockups on our network. When there is a problem with a server (bla1) it causes our local network including (bla2) (also our exchange server) to lock up network drives and lock mail. After about 5 minutes it goes back to normal. No errors are logged on (bla1) only on (bla2) see below. I belive its due to the "reachablity" flag but im not sure how to fix it. Please Help!!!

Process STORE.EXE (PID=1844). Exchange Active Directory Provider has discovered the following servers with the following characteristics:
 (Server name | Roles | Enabled | Reachability | Synchronized | GC capable | PDC | SACL right | Critical Data | Netlogon | OS Version)
In-site:
bla1.bla.com      CDG 1 7 7 1 0 1 1 7 1
bla2.bla.com      CDG 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0
 Out-of-site:
bla3.bla.com      CDG 1 7 7 1 0 1 1 7 1

Great article but how do I start troubleshooting this? I run dcdiag with no errors. One quick note is that exchange is installed on bla2.bla.com if that makes a difference. I inhertited this problem.

If Exchange is installed on a domain controller, then that server must also be a global catalog. Exchange will also only use itself for DC functionality.

I would start planning to move Exchange off the DC (you cannot run DCPROMO on the machine with Exchange installed).

You could run the EXBPA from the toolbox and ensure that doesn't flag anything else up.

Simon.

The link I need is broken......

This is taken from the page that sandeshdubey posted.

Since you are getting event id 2080.This is commonly caused by the SACL right not being applied on the new Domain Controller. In the event id check the first Domain Controller the fifth number is a one and shows that the SACL right is correctly applied. Next to the new domain controller the field is a zero and the SACL is the cause.
 
dc1.domain              CDG 7 7 1 0 1 1 7 1
newDC01.domain      CDG 7 7 1 0 0 1 7 1....this is the cause.


 broken link......................................................
Refer below link to fix the same.

However for better assistance related to exchange you can refer exchange2010 forum.
