  • How to setup Backup WIN2K3 DC

    I have 2 Win2K3 standard DC's and 1 Exchange 2003 standard server in my domain. If I shutdown DC1 users aren't able to logon to the network nor send and receive emails. How can I setup DC2 to perform DC1's task if DC1 fails? DC2 was created 2 weeks after DC1 and the Exchange server. DC2 is also a GC and replication is working fine.

    What are the local IP addresses of DC1 and DC2?

    What DNS server IP addresses are configured to be issued by the DHCP server?
    Best wishes,

      How long are you waiting after shutting down DC1? Clientts and Exchange will both cache AD information for a period of time.
