  • Hi,

    Maybe you can try this:

    Exclude the DC in Extranet.corp.local(domain for external access) for the AD Provider component use following command:

    EG:

    Set-ExchangeServer -identity casservername -StaticExcludedDomainControllers:DC1.extranet.corp.local

  • Is this in the event log?  Always post the full event log entry.  Use the Copy button in the event detail window.
