Exchange 2007 and windows 2008 Domain Controller in one same server RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I have installed an exchange 2007 on a win 2008 DC in my test lap.

    i laso have a win 2003 sp2 DC running.

     

    when i view server configuration -> properties ont he server -> system settings in i can only see the win 2003 DC not the 2007 one.

     

    this also means that if i turn off the win 2003 dc exchange stops working.

     

    Is there any way to make exchange recognise the local DC as valid for GC?

     

    yes the 2008 is GC i have checked.

    I did try to dcpromo the 2003 away for test and i get a lot of errors in the event log

  • I confirm. if you try to install exchange 2007 on windows 2008 you've to enable ipv6 otherwise the hub transport will not start.

  • I'm having a similar problem with only my 2003 DC/GC showing up in the Exchange Console Server Settings.

    Exchange 2007 with SP1 installed on Windows 2008 Server.  I have a Windows 2003 DC/GC and a WIndows 2008 DC/GC in the same subnet and site.

    Firewall's on all of the servers are off. The Exchange 2007 Server always authenticates to the 2003 DC/GC. 

    Based on Event2080, seems like Netlogon to the 2008 DC isn't working?

    Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGYSERVICE.EXE (PID=1944). 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:
    2003DC1.lgis.local    CDG 1 7 7 1 0 1 1 7 1
    2008DC1.lgis.local    CDG 1 7 7 1 0 1 1 0 1
     Out-of-site:

    I'm using static IPv4 addresses, and have IPv6 enabled but nothing set.  So much work just to decomission a 2003 DC/GC =P

    Ideas?

    Thanks

    Update:  I just realzied my 2008 DC/GC doesn't have a NETLOGON or SYSVOL share! yikes!!  Anyone else have this problem?

  • you must also give the ipv6 an actual address if not it wont work.

  • Marcel,

     

    Is that just for this scenario?  I have spoken with colleagues who have not had to configure IPv6 when the Exchange 2007 SP1 server is on a Windows 2008 Member Server (i.e. non-Domain Controller).

    Hi, can you help me please? Under giving an actual address you mean thqa I need to enter IPv6 address manually?
