  • Question

  • Hi,

    My exchange server is reporting the following:

     

    Process MAD.EXE (PID=5028). Exchange Active Directory Provider has discovered the following servers with the following characteristics: 
     (Server name | Roles | Enabled | Reachability | Synchronized | GC capable | PDC | SACL right | Critical Data | Netlogon | OS Version) 
    In-site:
    dc01.jdc.local CDG 1 7 7 1 0 1 1 7 1
    dc02.jdc.local --G 1 1 7 1 0 1 1 7 1
     Out-of-site:

    How I can fix/setup, that dc02 gets also the C and D roles?

    Thanks

    Given the errors you encounter when running the diagnostic tools I'd
    say this isn't an Exchange problem. You should post a new question in
    the O/S forum. This one looks to be approprate:

    Have you tried rebooting DC02?
     
    Have you run DCDIAG on DC02?

    Try running th Exchange Best Proactices Analyzer.
     
    It looks like there's a problem finding (or connecting to) the
    services that should be described in DNS "SRV" records.

  • Hello,

    This information event indicates that Exchange Active Directory Provider discovered all the available domain controllers together with a set of attributes which are used to build the active directory topology.

    Besides check the DNS SRV record, I suggest you run netdiag to check the network and use the active directory replication status tool analyzes the replication status for domain controllers in an active directory domain.

    it looks a bit weird. I have used the tool, and received 2 different reults.

    Running on DC02 (bhdc.jdc.local) - everything fine

    Running on DC01 (fs.jdc.local) - "PDC" - error:

  • Hi,

    I have restarted all dc's, and now this

    active directory replication status tool

    shows, that everything works fine.

    I have also used dcdiag /fix

    but no success with netdiag, as the dc's are w2k8r2 and w2k12

    See the supportability matrix. Specifically the "Supported Active
    Directory Environments" section:

    Windows 2012 isn't present yet.

    Have you verified that the DNS contains the correct information for
    that DC?
