Here is the situation:
I originally had a Win 2000 Serv er (Domain Controller) running Exchange
2000. I have added a Windows Server 2003 Domain Controller and installed
Exchange 2003 on it. I have moved over all users mailboxes to the Exchange
2003 server. I have removed Exchange 2000 from my Win 2000 Server.
Everything works fine at this point. I have made the new 2003 Server the
Operations Master and Global Catalog Master. When I shut down the Win 2000
Server, none of my users can connect to Exchange 2003. Please help!!!

Around 2:30 we start getting reports from users saying Outlook is telling
them the Exchange server cannot be contacted. The affected users are
dispersed and have no commonalities. Different OU’s, GP’s, subnets, even one
of the admins was affected. By the end it looked like everyone but a handful
of people were affected, but it’s hard to say as most had gone home.
My computer always worked, I could log off and log back in and had no
problems. If I went to another computer it wouldn’t work. Some users we
tested with would log off, log back in and it would stop working.

Running XP and Outlook 2003. Out of 35 desktops, two desktops cannot connect
to the Exchange Server which were previously connected. I've ruled out the
user accounts since I can set them up on different computers and connect
without any issues. I cannot connect new users on the machines and deleting
the profile didn't work either. I've also installed all updates.
Any help would be appreciated.
Maybe best to repost this to the Exchange newsgroup for a more comprehensive answer

I have a problem with my Outlook. It was running just
fine this morning and then I had to install some VPN
client software called Aventail. It's web-based and made
some modifications to my security certificates. Following
that, I haven't been able to connect to the Exchange
Server to pick up my mail from Outlook (luckily, the web
interface still works for me). Does anyone know how to
fix this? Or am I going to be uninstalling Aventail and
crossing my fingers?

one of our users is consistently unable to connect to the exchange server on
our Network (Exchange 2003). In the status bar on the bottom right, the
message is "disocnnected." Trying to reconnect does not work. He is using
Outlook 2003. What seems to be happening is that there are too many logon
sessions open at the same time, and thus he is not able to connect. When we
restart the Information Store service on the Exchange Server, he is able to
connect again. Sometimes this stays for a while, but today all sessions came
back within a matter of an hour.
