  • Trouble communicating two Exchange 2003

    Hi

    We are having trouble with communicate two exchange 2003 SP2 in the same Network and domain.

    Both Servers are domain controllers with Windows 2003 STD SP1 and global catalog, 2Gb of memory, Setting the /3GB Switch and USERVA 3030 in the boot.ini

    We move 50% of the users to the new Server.

    Each user within the same server can communicate without problem, but, between servers, the mails keep in queue.

    We have not errors in the event viewer, every seems to be ok, DNS, telnet to port 25 works fine to both servers. We can see with the System Manger, both servers and queues.

    We probe to send an email with a client like OE to a user in DC1 pointing to smtp of DC1. it arrive, but, if we send the email pointing to smtp of DC2, it keep in DC2 queue.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks in advance

    Here are a couple of things to check. First and foremost, is name resolution. Can you open a command prompt on one system and PING the other.

    Second, have you change the FQDN on either of the SMTP Virtual Servers? Check on the SMTP Virtual Server's properties, Delivery Tab, click the Advanced button. Make sure that the names used on the SMTP virtual servers is resolvable internally. A lot of times this is changed due to problems communicating with the outside.

      Thanks Jim

      We figured out that the smtp virtual server of DC01 was pointing to an Smarthost. We created a new smtp conector and it worked.

      Again, Thanks a lot
