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 ?

Take a look at this article.

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

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

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 ?

Because from GUI you can't choose DC.

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.
