Exchange Server 2003 in a 2012 Standard Environment
Posted on 2014-02-11
This one hurts. Here is where is stood until last night:
2 - 2012 Standard Servers, both DCS, one holds all 5 FSMO roles
2 - 2003 Standard Servers, both DCs, one use to hold all 5 FSMO roles until I moved them to one of the 2012 Servers.
1 _ Exchange Server 2003 member server
Life was good and everything was working fine until last night when I decommissioned one of the 2003 DCs. Ran DCPromo and everything went smooth but the Exchange Server 2003 splattered. It is booting with a million errors about not finding the AD.
It was somehow wrapped tight around the 2003 DC I DCPromoed. I have not idea why this happened or how to recover (if possible). Does anyone have any ideas?
