            What are the first errors in the event viewer? Have you
tried running dcdiag to see if it comes up with any severe errors? Just
a thought.

It looks like a dns problem.  Domain prep basically is just adding some
usergroups to the active directory of exchanfge.

        Have you tried running domainprep?

        I'd be extremely grateful for any thoughts on the following. 
        Setup: win 2k sp2 Ex 2000 sp3 (was SP2 at the time of the grief.
Hoped SP3 
        would solve the problem. no chance!) 
        Grief :  Numerous error messages in system and application logs
but they all 
        seem to stem from DSAccess being unable to find a domain
controller. I get 
        event ID 2102 "All Domain controllers in use are not responding"
I also get: 
        DSAccess will use the servers from the following list 
        Domain Controllers: 
        Global Catalog Servers: 
        The configuration controller is set to <none> 
        When I try to force DSAcccess to use a DC as a configuration
controller, 
        with the registry,  I'm told it can't be found in the Sites
container.(It's 
        there!) 
        Manually starting the Sytem attendent gives me "no errors but
can't start" 
        This leads on to Metabase failures (ID 1002 and 1004), Unknown
Errors in 
        exchange system (1005) etc. 
        The system log shows that it starts the IFS but can't find the
paths to the 
        m: drive which is not surprising as the store and attendent
don't start. 
        Ending with two fatal errors creating SSL credentials (ID 36871)

        One of the three DC's was renamed a few weeks ago but all was
working 
        perfectly until I went on holiday last week! 24 hours after I
left I'm told 
        that things just stopped working for no good reason.......... 
        All else seems fine. AD replication, DNS etc. I've looked at
numerous KB 
        aricles and checked permissions and DNS etc to no avail.
Obviously my 
        exchange server has lost sight of my DC's (how?) and perhaps
this is a 
        win2000 problem but all else seems to be fine? 
        Is reinstalling with /domainprep the best solution here? Am I
missing 
        something simple? 
        Grateful for any help. My users are getting antsy without their
mail (and 
        not happy that I went on holiday!) 
        Many thanks 
        George
