I'm running a small LAN. 100 users. 2 DC's and 1 Exchange server. Everything

is 2003 STD SP2 and exchange is 2003 SP2.

Every few days, the exchange server hangs for what appears to be 2 to 4

mins. All my outlook clients get, server offline or not responding and then

it comes back.

When i check the logs i see Topology errors.

Warning:process STORE.EXE (PID=4252). Exchange Server ifmssrv1.IFMS.local

does not have Audit Security Privilege on Domain Controller

sapbld2.IFMS.local. This Domain Controller will not be used by DSAccess.

Warning:process STORE.EXE (PID=4252). The Domain Controller

sapbld2.IFMS.local is running (Unknown Operating System) (Unknown Service

Pack). DSAccess requires that Domain Controllers that run Windows 2000 have

at least Service Pack 3 installed.

Error:process MAD.EXE (PID=2252). All Global Catalog Servers in use are not

responding:

sapbld2.IFMS.local

Now this just started happening. I did retire a DC a few years ago and added

a new one with a new name. I checked all my roles in AD and everything still

points to my sapbl2 server. Also the master schema is still SAPBLD2.

I looked this up and found some useless info on microsofts site to check

rights and stuff, but its all normal.

ANYONE HAVE IDEAS????

Could a lack of diskspace cause this issue?

My TEMPDFRG.STM and EDB file is on my C: and usually grows until i lose

space and have to move it off to clear it up..seems to work fine when they

are small.

Just a thought?

Any ideas?

Are you running something like GoExchange that defrags your store regularly?

Exchange wouldn't be creating a file named TEMPDFRG.STM unless that was the

name specified in the properties of a mailbox or public store. If you are

using something like GoExchange, get rid of it. GoExchange automates the

unnecessary. It just runs ESEUTIL /D, and that is not necessary unless you

have some kind of event that makes reclamation of space necessary.

I'm not sure the errors you list could be caused by a lack of disk space,

but you should solve any disk space issues first. The errors you list

appear to indicate some kind of network problem.
