Changing an Active Directory site name breaks exchange RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to clean up and organize a AD/Exchange environment that I inherited.

    I've migrated from Exchange 2007 to 2010 and decomissioned the 2007 servers.

    Today I wanted to get AD cleaned up a bit so I began to create sites/subnets and move our remote office DC's into appropriate sites.

    I began by changing "Default-First-Site-Name" to something more appropriate like "HEADOFFICE".

    Ten minutes after I did this, exchange stopped working and the error:

    Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGY (PID=1432). The site monitor API was unable to verify the site name for this Exchange computer - Call=DsGetSiteNameW Error code=800703e5. Make sure that Exchange server is correctly registered on the DNS server.

    appeared in the event log.

    Along with many of these:

    Watson report about to be sent for process id: 10976, with parameters: E12, c-RTL-AMD64, 14.01.0218.015, edgetransport, M.E.Data.Storage, M.E.D.S.ExchangePrincipal.get_ServerFullyQualifiedDomainName, System.InvalidOperationException, 656b, 14.01.0218.012.
    ErrorReportingEnabled: False

    Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGY (PID=1408). When updating security for a remote procedure call (RPC) access for the Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology service, Exchange could not retrieve the security descriptor for Exchange server object MJEXCHANGE00 - Error code=8007077f.
     The Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology service will continue starting with limited permissions.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Try restarting the System Attendant service.

  • Hi,
    Has the sitename been hardcoded in the registry on the Exchange Server?
    See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2025528

    That is something that I have had to do at some customers, because of the same errors as you see.

  • Restarting system attendant service seemed to do the trick.

    Thanks
