  • Exchange Member Server

    I am new to Exchange Server. I have two servers. The first server("csLA") is the domain controller and the second server("csOC") will house the Exchange Server. How do I create the domain forest, so csLA will register csOC?

    When I run the DCDiag program I get the following error:


    Domain Controller Diagnosis

    Performing initial setup:
    *** Warning: could not confirm the identity of this server in
    the directory versus the names returned by DNS servers.
    If there are problems accessing this directory server then
    you may need to check that this server is correctly registered
    with DNS

      Re: Exchange Member Server

      LOL Nice...

      Does the second server need to be registered with the first server?

      Do I register it in the domain controller?

        Re: Exchange Member Server

        I'm pretty sure that Exchange needs to run on a server which is a member of the domain. If that's what your question means, then yes. If you installed Exchange while the server was NOT a member of the domain, you will probably need to uninstall it, (or even format and reinstall the server), join the Domain, and THEN install Exchange. It will prepare the Active Directory for the presence of Exchange by changing the AD Schema (the database defining the structure of the Active Directory Database).

          Is there a guide that can walk me through join a domain?


          Sorry, as you can see beginner at Exchange Server.


          The NETDIAG program is returning that the server is not correctly registering with the DNS server.

            Re: Exchange Member Server

            What do you want to do? To join a computer to a domain? What does have to do with Exchange?

            See what was the first result on the above page.

              Re: Exchange Member Server

              When I first posted this bulletin, I had know idea. I think I need to understand how to connect the two servers.

              Is there a direct connection that needs to be created between the two servers, if so by what means?

              The first server is a Domain Controller. Do I need to register the second server in the DNS and DC settings? How is this done?

                Personally I think that you have some fundamental issues around your understanding of Active Directory and Windows Server.

                Is this a live system you're on? If not, then you have some reading to do; but I would trash everything and start again and work up to it bit by bit.

                If it IS a live system, however, then before you start doing ANYTHING to a production network you MUST go on some training courses. You are clearly not qualified to be doing the work you are attempting to do. Go to your boss, and get help. However, if you said you could do this before he hired you...
