  • Can't configure mail account on a DC

    I just finished MCITP and I'm trying to learn myself exchange

    I have a DC server, a member server and a client with windows 7 OS
    I prepared the schema, the AD and the domain in the DC before installing exchange
    Installed AD Services and Web Server IIS in the member server
    Lunched ADUC and added my DC from "Change Domain Controller" option
    Exchange installed successfully
    I created mailboxes for the client and for the DC admin
    Installed outlook at the client and the account configured automatically
    Installed outlook in the DC and got an error that says I don't have a default gateway
    I tried the mail server as a DG and asked to fill a user name and a password for the exchange server
    Used the local and the AD account to connect and failed

    What did I do wrong?

    could you paste me the IPconfig details from both the client, and the DC?

    probably something like this:
    Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : adept-it.lan
    IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.22.38
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.240
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.22.33

        DC doesnt have a default gateway -- should be the IP address of your router (and the exchange server and client should have the same if they need internet access)

        Can you screenshot the message you get from Outlook on the DC?
        Have you tried OWA from the DC and client?
        What version of Exchange?
