EX2013 problem with AD

Hi Experts,

my EX2013 server cannot connect to AD properly.
I always get the Error:

Unable to find a default server with Active Directory Web Service running

Ex2013 is installed on WIN2012R2
The DCs are WIN2008

Do you have any idea ?

Good, but you exchange must connect only to this DC then run ad cmdlets.

Take a look at this article.

It looks like you may not have Active Directory Web Service (ADWS) installed.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I think not, which service is it exactly ?
It must be installed on my DC or on all DCs ?

I have got the advice to just install a server win2012r2 and promote em to AD.

Eprs_AdminSystem ArchitectAuthor Commented:
ok I see.
I will give it a try, because in the future we have to use the new DC

Eprs_AdminSystem ArchitectAuthor Commented:
The new DC is installed.
From the GUI I have the same issue, cannot find all AD users.

From the the SHELL it works when I check a user with GET-ADUSER user01

Why not from the GUI ?

Mikhail SartaevSystem architectCommented:
Because from GUI you can't choose DC.

Eprs_AdminSystem ArchitectAuthor Commented:
in SHELL I also not choose any AD, I just type the command.

How can I solve it ?
Because like this, the GUI has no sense yet.
