    Problems with exchange server

    Yesterday and today, we have been having a few problems with the exchange server. When you come to check your emails first thing on a morning nothing will connect to the server, even remote desktop will not connect, so to resolve it, we have to restart the server and things seem to work fine.
    Looking at the event viewer,
    "Process INETINFO.EXE (PID=996). Topology Discovery failed, error 0xffffffff" was showing with the event code of 2114

    "Process MAD.EXE (PID=2552). All Domain Controller Servers in use are not responding:
    Isis.shs.com
    seth.shs.com
    Hades.shs.com
    server.shs.com " was showing with the event code of 2102

    "Process EMSMTA.EXE (PID=3652). Topology Discovery failed, error 0xffffffff." was showing with event code 2114

    If anyone has had this problem before and knows how to fix it please let me know, as it is driving me insane.

    Thanks

    Re: Problems with exchange server

    This is usually caused by AD/DNS problems. Run netdiag/dcdiag to troubleshoot.

    Install the Windows Support tools.
