exchange 2013 mail flow

Posted on 2014-03-12

I just installed a brand new Exchange 2013 (no migration) on a network. The server was installed without error with pack1 service on a windows server 2012 standard.

We have big slowness sent email sen output (30 minutes) but the most serious is that the internal mail does not work.

Have you any idea?
Do you know if there is a GAP for exchange 2013 that can be installed?

thank you

A what?

If you use OWA, do you see the same delays through that interface?

Yes GAP is installed.
Yes even slow in OWA.

But the problem that worries me most is the problem of not receiving mail internally.

I don't understand what you mean by "GAP"?
If you cannot receive email internally, you would need to look at Message Tracking to see what Exchange is doing with the message. Exchange should work straight out of the box with minimal configuration, unless you have a bad installation.

- AD Server 2012: ok (just for infra)
- Server 2012 member: ok for exchange
- Level of the forest: 2008 native
- Domain level: 2008 native

We performed the following actions:

- Removal of BAL
- Deletion of the Data Bank
- Remove the Exchange 2013 server
(all this happened without error)

- The member server has been removed from the AD
- Change the server name
- Integration with AD
(all this happened without error)

We launch a clean exchange 2013 and we have the following system errors:

Error Administrator (account used for installation) without belonging to the group:
    - Director of the Company
    - Organisation Management
Error on the domain level (see environment)

Error on the AD is nonexistent apaprement

We try a lot of solution and are open to any proposal.

You are using acronyms that I don't recognise. It would appear that English isn't your first language, but you need to be clear on what you are referring to. I don't understand "GAP" or "BAL" as an acronym for Exchange server use.

At this time, I think your best option is to either engage a consultant or Microsoft support.
The removal of Exchange 2013 obviously wasn't as clean as you expected due to the errors that have been left behind and therefore manual work is required to clean it up.

We had so many problems we remove Exchange 2013 and distributed on an exchange 2010 installed on a 2008 R2 server.
Thank you for your help.
