Issues with demoting exchange server? #2

Hi,

It seems that the previous administrator was not succesful in fully
promoting a sever to a DC. We are supposed to have two DCs (CC7=First
DC, CC5=DC with Exchange server).

There have been continuous replication problems from cc5 to cc7. AD
doesnt consider cc5 as a DC and cc7 is the only DC in Domain
Controllers group of AD. Manual replication between two DCs results in
'no endpoints' error. AD is unavailable several times on both DCs.
Object created on a DC is not replicated within two (!) days on second
DC.

Clearely cc5 can not communicate with cc7 the way it is supposed to.

Today is 11/15/06 and last successful replication was done on
04/03/2006. Clearly reached the tombstone. !!!!!!!

I am new and have conlcuded that demoting cc5 and promoting back will
solve the problem.

Can you please tell me what you think about this issue? Should I demote
the DC?

How can demotion and promotion can be done? Which entries on first DC
need to be cleaned before promoting the server to DC again?

Thanks for reading through and hope to hear comments from you!

Regards,
Mayur

WMP video playback issue
I have WMP 11 and I'm trying to play an AVI file with an Xvid codec. For some reason, it doesn't play; it just stays at 00:00:00. I can move the cursor and see each frame fine, but, if i press play, nothing happens (apart from the icon changing from 'playing' to 'paused'. It uses an independent subtitle file (.sub) and DirectVobSub, if that's of any relevance. When doing this on a computer with XP, it worked fine, but for some reason not on this particular one, which is Vista. ADD: It works perfectly when opened with PowerDVD. Scratch that, it plays ...

Steps before retiring Exhchange 5.5 Server
I am currently running Exhchange 2003 replicating with a Exchange 5.5 server. I have moved all mailboxes, public folders, etc, and it looks like everything is moved to the 2003 server. I'm a little worried to remove the 5.5 server from the organization just in case I missed something. Once the server is removed, is it possible to add it back in without a lot of troube (if I'm still running in mixed mode)? What tests should I do to verify that I am done with the Exchange 5.5 server? Thanks, Troy see this: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;152959 "...

2 easy questions..
Hi, Easy questions but seemingly hard to find answers: 1. When creating a rule, I've set Outlook to forward all mail that is received to an Exchange/AD contact and then move the mail to deleted items. It appears that the icon seems to think that is a client side rule but I don't think it should be. Shouldn't that be server side? 2. Mailbox manager in ESM..... Does it run with the other recipient policies or only from the schedule defined on the server? I believe by default all polices run at 4am or something like that and I was wondering if my mailbox management pol...

link to 2 nested set models help
Hi All, Given: I have a nested set (MPTT) of employees/sales rep. I have a nested set (MPTT) of sales territories. How do you generally associate these 2 tables together.

Did the DS/IS reconciliation as per normal, and had to rebuild the user lists (all done).

Moving to Native mode in Exchange 2003
Hi, I've finally removed the one and only Exchange 5.5 server from our organisation, now its time to move to Native mode. My only query is, what impact does it have when I go Native?

Exchange server 200
I'm experiencing what i originally thought was an exchange server 2000(sp3)memory leak but now i'm not sure. What is happening is that my available mbytes of memory will cycle from 50 to 0 repeatedly throughout the day. The store service will fluctuate it's memory usage from around 217mb to 275mb accordingly. I am not noticing any decreased performance from it. I'm just thinking it's strange that i would see this type of behavior from Available Mbytes counter. Is this an indication of something else? Btw, the server is a compaq ml350g2 with 512mg of ram and around a 13...

Exorbitant Connection Data? #2
Hello, Several of our users connect to their Exchange mailboxes using 3G datacards to provide the backbone to the internet and from there use MS VPN to access the resources on our LAN. They then open Outlook to download their messages. What I have been told by users is that on occasion they end up downloading up to 20MB of data after they open Outlook and before they begin downloading emails. Apart from the waiting being undesirable the cost is huge. Datacard usage is charged per MB and when you are abroad the cost can be exorbitant. They are all using cached mode so it could be that the...

My output is good and chance of data entry error is next to nil. My dilemma is this: there is an OLD file that requires all numbers be manually keyed in from printed sheets (the same data I paste in my DataIn.xls file)....
