After searching this forum for hints about my problem and finding nothing, I have the following situation
abd need some help.
I have a setup of 2 exchange 2003 servers (front-end/back-end) behind a ISA firewall, all
running of server 2003.
This setup has been running flawlessly for almost 2 years.
I am running rpc over http for
our external offices.
Here is my problem.
Since last week following a long power outage where the servers
were turn off running out of ups, my outlook 2003 clients running rpc/http
now show "disconnected" in the directory
This prevent them of using the out of office assistant and setting up new accounts.
works fine. They can connect to their mailbox, get/send messages, use calendar and public folders.
OWA also works and
for now they are using that to set their out of office messages.
I am a little puzzled. I went twice over all my
configuration and everything is as documented when I did the installation.
Nothing changed since then, and I am the
only admin on thoses servers.
I searched the web for a similar problem and I only find out this
I tried last night to restart both exchange servers and the dc but
that did not help.
Seems that the connection to exchange is working but the active directory one is not.
Also, this affects only clients going over rpc/http. Local clients are fine and show "connected" at the Directory
connection in outlook.
I'm now going over the logs of all 3 servers trying to see what is wrong.
Thanks for any thoughts
