A client has been struggling with Exchange 2003 for some time now and I’ve got the project to roll out Exchange 2010. The first hurdle I come to is a new incarnation of a pre-existing problem from Exchange 2003 – simply put “Can’t find a domain controller”. Which means it can’t mount the Information Store. Brill.
You’ll need to edit the Default Domain Controllers Policy in Group Policy.
- Computer Configuration
- Windows Settings
- Security Settings
- User Rights Assignment
- Mange auditing and security log
Add “Exchange Servers” or “Exchange Enterprise Servers” to that policy.
gpupdate /force on the domain controller and restart the Exchange Services
