Hi Experts,

We are having an issue with our Exchange server. When logging on it complained that there was trust issues. We removed the server off the domain and re-added it but now we are experiencing this issue:

the username and password is incorrect

Any idea what the issue can be? We can log on via local user.

Any help will be appreciated.

Regards,

I have, not much going on there other than this:

Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGYSERVICE.EXE (PID=2040). Topology discovery failed, error 0x80040952 (LDAP_LOCAL_ERROR (Client-side internal error or bad LDAP message)). Look up the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) error code specified in the event description. To do this, use Microsoft Knowledge Base article 218185, "Microsoft LDAP Error Codes." Use the information in that article to learn more about the cause and resolution to this error. Use the Ping or PathPing command-line tools to test network connectivity to local domain controllers.

Also once the server is up, the services is not fully starting and is hanging for a long time.

What do you suggest we do to fix this problem?

First of all you check it after reboot all server. then here is some solution may this will help you.

You only have one GC in your site A which is a single point of failure. Make your DC-A a GC as well.

Make sure dcdiag works fine and that there are no replication issues. Bounce your Exchange server (after hours).

Worse come, you can give a static list of your domain controllers and GCs using Set-ADServerSettings

Here is some more solution

Check the NIC settings / update drivers on the Exchange server (CAS would be where this error is coming from) and also check the port settings / errors on the local switch.

It has to be a networking issue, as the errors above are saying there is a connectivity issue between Exchange and the DC.

You can also try cycling (restarting) the Exchange CAS in question (it might be an all in one server, not sure). It could just need a service restart for the AD Topology service and its dependants. But honestly, from the looks of your errors it seems this would be a networking issue (bad nic drivers, oversaturated virtual network / physical switch, bad switchport, ect).
