  • exchange / active directory

    Hi guys

    the problem i am having is with exchange 2000 server in that any new user accounts i create, mailboxes are not being created with them.

    a little history in what has change recently is that our old dc and exchange server has been to moved to a new server.

    old server testdc1

    newserver testdc2

    we also have another server that is a additional dc which is testdc3



    now the thing i have noticed is that the entries for testdc1 are still present in system manger on exchange and in active directory user and computers and sites and services.

    would this by any chance be related to the problems i'm having with exchange and the mail accounts,also in the event log there a numerous events for replication problems.

    any help on this will be greatly appreciated

    thanks in advance

    1. Backup the servers first.
    2. Use:

    3. Verity thay the DNS server/s in the LAN functions and working by using
    NSLOOKUP, DCDIAG, NETFIAG commands.

    4. Reboot the Exchange server.

    I hope that you replicate the public folders and move the mailboxs from the old
    Exchange to the new one.

      thanks for the reply yuval

      the old dc and exchange server are no longer there any more i.e that was testdc1 and is now testdc3 acting as a dc and file and print server,

      do you reckon that the cause of my exchange problem not creating mailboxes is related to the invalid entries left from the old server, or is a case of delete the invalid entries and see what happens.

        How you add the new DC + Exchange & how you moved the data (mailboxs, public folders) from the old server to the new one?
