Setup as a child domain, 1 (us) of 2 (other), with the root domain having no exchange servers.
Child domain 2 was the original start of the exchange installation.
Server 2003 SP2 with Critical Updates installed.
Exchange 2003 SP2 with Critical Updates installed.
We currently have 8 sites setup as its own admin group, and connection to the net.
The problem is that i updated a server from the other domian yesterday (is on our site but their domain) to Server 2003 R2 and when the server went down our exchange servers stopped working. The server is a GC.
Now each site has its own DC and GC and our PDC Emulator for our domain is in our main office site.
I’ve ran both netdiag and dcdiag and get no errors on any dc.
DNS is working as expected and is returning the correct ip’s and the correct DNS name when queried.
Why is exchange looking to DC’s in the other site without using its local ones first???
