Hi guys need some help here
IIS died on me in a big way the other day and consequently the smtp service 
started crashing the iisadmin service. I have followed an ms article (dont have 
it handy) to remove and reinstall IIS and reinstall exchange, mount the old 
stores. All this seemed to be OK, the stores mount, the services start, OWA 
works, mail flows too and from the gateway etc. The only problem i have now is 
that when i try to view existing outlook profiles or create new ones, even for 
newly created ad users the names cant be resolved. 
I have checked DNS and network connectivity on the server and clients and all 
is well. If I fire up both event viewers (server and client) at the same time 
and try to open the profile or create a new one, after it outlook errors it 
doesn't log anything to the server or client events, which is helpful. The 
event logs on the server do not contain any errors at all pertaining to this or 
The only thing I haven't tried yet is to re install office, as I haven't got 
access to the cd yet. 
If any one has any tips or has come across this before I'm all ears
