Hi,

We had an issue last week where the Data Stores on Exchange needed clearing out. At the same time we were unable to create new mailboxes, when we went through the wizard and the timer starts showing the new mailbox being created it wouldn't actually create the mailbox.

The time would just go on and on.

No errors, the Elapsed Time just keeps going and going. Where in Event Viewer should I be looking for errors?

The databases are mounted

I started to create a new Mailbox and watch Windows Logs > Application at the same time, the only entry I see is: "The Directory Service Referral interface (RFRI) received a client request on RPC protocol sequence ncacn_ip_tcp.  RFRI is returning the Domain Controller name crossbill.domain.com"

Probably the Exchange server was not able to communicate to any DC.
