Hey Cahit,

DCDIAG will fail on an Exchange Server. DCDIAG is a troubleshooting tool for Domain Controllers. You would need to either run that command from a DC or specify the /S switch.

Based on this part of your log, it looks like you need to provide credentials for your email proxy. Or your credentials are wrong.

454 4.7.0 Temporary authentication failure

This forum thread indicates it could also be caused by a time sync issue. One user said all they did was restart the Transport and AD Topology Services.
