Exchange Lab Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am attempting to setup Exchange in a lab.

    Right now I have a Server 2008 and Server 2003.

    I installed Exchange 2013 on the Server 2008 box and I am getting a Global catalog error. I can not authenticate to active directory.

    Server 2008 has a domain and was replicated to the 2003 box.

    I think during this replication process my DNS broke.

    I am not so familiar with DNS and not sure how to ensure my records are correct.

    nltest /dsgetdc: /site:<site name>

    returns

    Getting DC name failed : Status = 133 0x64b ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN

  • So you are saying the 2008 is the secondary DC/GC and 2003 is the inital DC/GC? which machine is holding the FSMO roles?

    Yup - with newer OS that support the version of Exchange.

  • Hi,

    Based on my research, Microsoft don’t support the installation of Exchange 2013 on a computer that’s running in Windows Server 2008. 

    Exchange 2013 system requirements
