Hi,

i have a new customer with a SBS 2011. I fixed most of the errors on this maschine. But if i start up the server, i get errors like
CertifiactionAuthority ID44 = domain doesnt exist
MSExcahge ADAccess ID2114 =  LDAP local error
MSExchangeRepl ID3154 = Unable to make connection to server
MSExchangeIS ID1121 = Cant connect to AD
etc

After some Minutes those errors dont show up in event log anymore. Exchange is running and AD is working too.

I think, that AD is starting to slow and those other services start before AD.
How can i check, if this is the error and how do i get AD starting before those services ?

Thanks

SBS is designed to have everything installed on it, so this shouldn't normally be a problem.
I suspect there is a configuration error - run the SBS BPA to begin with, see whether that flags anything.

Check that there hasn't been an attempt to disable IPv6, I have seen that cause these kinds of problems before. Also using other DNS servers can give problems.

IPv6 is active, BPA gives no hints (only some warnings that aren´t very problematic)

There isn't anything odd with the network configuration?
Dual NICs for example, not using the local server only for DNS etc?

I dont know what exactly made it run, but i fixed many problems. BPA said, ther were no problems. DNS and networksettings were fine too.
I got the server running now. Only one page in the SBS-Console crash the dashboard. I can live with that.
