How to specify DSaccess in exchange server 2003 ?

Here we have 3 DC in the domain. I want to configurate my exchange 2003 to 
always access DC1, any body knows how to set it ? Thanks.

when you go to the properties of the Exchange Server in Exchange System 
Manager, you can access the Directory Access Tab.  You will see all servers 
listed there, you cannot uncheck the automatically discover.  But if you 
select next to Show the Configuration Domain Controller, or any other item 
in the list, you can manually set your preferred server.
But, be careful if you specify one specific DC, he won't fall back to 
another one if this one fails.

The best way to do this is to put Exchange and DC1 in a their own Active 
Directory subnet and site.  Be forewarned that if you do this and DC1 fails, 
there will be a delay of 15 minutes where nobody can do anything until 
Exchange fails over to a DC in another site.  And it won't necessarily pick 
a DC in a well-connected site; it'll more or less randomly pick another DC.

Outlook 2003 and Firefox
I recently started using Firefox as my default browser. I have changed all defaults from IE 6 to Firefox, however, Outlook is the only program that refuses to make the switch. I've checked Program Access and Defaults, and while Firefox is not mentioned specifically, I have it set to use "Current Browser" rather than IE6. I set Firefox as my default within Firefox, and "make sure it's set as default." I changed IE to NOT be the default within IE. What other settings do I need to make to keep IE from opening within Outlook? This has been so frustrating. Thanks fo...

Sql Server Group Database Location?

CPU spikes on sql server
We have noticed most of the same performance issues that are reported around here, but in trying to research a few of these I noticed the following strange behavior. Every 10 minutes a sql agent runs a process for "stored procedure priming". When this runs, the cpu on the server pegs at 100% for about 30 seconds. then back to 0% or so until the next firing This is a almost brand new install and only 1 or 2 users hit it.

Exchange Front End Server Question
We currently are running SBS 2003 and Enterprise Exchange. Our SBS box is acting as our front end server. We are moving away from SBS and I will be moving exchange to it own server.

Access 2003 file format advange?
We're upgrading our system from Access 2000 to Access 2003. I'm aware that version 2000 databases can be opened in Access 2003 without conversion, and it did, in fact open, but are there any benefits to converting the database to version 2003? Or, are there reasons why our 2000 database should NOT be converted to 2003? It's hard to beleive that it wouldn't matter one way or the other, and think there must be some advantage to converting to a file format of "2003" if we're using Access 2003. Many thanks in advance.
