  • Global Catalog Problem

    I am new to the forum and urgently need help on fixing a problem with our domain. Recently a domain controller failed and this dc acted as our only global catalog server. I have tried to recover the global catalog and at present any users that were already on the system can access the domain. However we are experiencing problems when creating new users. The domain controllers also act as exchange servers. When the new account is created the users email address is not present. Can anyone help me recover or recreate the global catalog server?

    Re: Global Catalog Problem

    how many dcs do you have , and how many of this dcs are running exchange.
    when you said the dc failed what error messages are you getting . Make sure
    the dns server works fine .If you have another server promote the server and make it a global catalog .

    Hope you have a good backup
