EMERGENCY: Exchange lost communication with AD after demoting windows 2003 server.
I put in a new server 2008 R2 to replace 2003 DC.
I demoted the 2003 DC and now exchange is not working (running on windows 2008 R2, exchange 2010 std).
When I go to check the server to add another local user (to give admin rights) it doesn't even show the domain. it only shows the local computer name. But when I check under computer it still has the FQDN pointing to the domain.
If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
