Exchange 2003 won't start after shutdown of a domain controller
Posted on 2014-10-15
I shutdown an old Win2003 R2 Domain Controller, and now the only Exchange 2003 server in the domain won't start. To be exact, the Exchange System Attendant will not start.
What bothers me, is that I still have 3 other DC's that works fine, 1 old Win2003R2 DC in the same subnet and 2 new Win2008 R2 DC's in another subnet (same internal network).
And of course, the eventlog is always starting with eventid 5719 after a reboot,
"This computer was not able to set up a secure session with a domain controller in domain DIAKONSYK due to the following:
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.
This may lead to authentication problems. Make sure that this computer is connected to the network. If the problem persists, please contact your domain administrator. "
Googling eventid 5719 gives me information not relevant in my case, since there are other DC's that should handle the traffic from the Exchange server. I also have checked the settings for "manage remote logs" in Default Domain controllers policy, it shows as it should be.
And yes, the DNS settings on the nic points to the new Win2008 r2 DC's.
Anyone with ideas? Thanks!
