  • demote/promote DC while running exchange

    So I have recently learned that you should never promote or demote a server that is running Exchange 200x. I have been thinking about it, but I cannot come up with a good (technical) reason for that. Anyone care to enlighten me?

        WOW, what luck. I was about to DCPromo my Exchange Server so I could fix the DC. Guess I need to do it the long way. I'm sure things were easier when we only had slates.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2
