 If you have a extra server make it a DC, then in Exchange 2000 (if you put 
Service Pack 2 on it) you can tell what server it should get all the 
information from. 
In Exchange system manger open fist store group, then rt click on the server 
name, go to properties, then click on Directory access. Here you can set what 
server Exchange will query for information. 
This can be the new server and the data will be local, this should speed up 
your performance.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2k Server as Domain Controller

Let me clarify something.  I already have a GC server.  I also have a
remote DC server that is connected via FR from NJ (I am in AZ).  For
some reason my Exchange server sees the GC server but will not allow me
to select it for as the Enterprise Config Server under Recipient Update

I have a 4 way P3 800 server with 2Gb memory and four 36.4Gb hard-drives
on a Raid5 with only 280 mailboxes yet my Exchange/Outlook is EXTREMELY
slow!!!!!!!  My RPC Operations/SEC are spiking and I can not find a way
to resolve the performace issue.  After watching the network monitor for
awhile I kept seeing it wanting to communicate with the only DC that is
across country.  I was hoping that making it just a simple DC without
any FSMO roles the AL performance will increase. 


Has anyone else had performace issues like this??  One hell of a box
with poor performace?
