On 2 of my Ex2000 servers, when you create a user the mailbox does not show up 
in ESM. I tried emailing it, logging in OWA, Outlook to try to activate it no 
luck. RUS is working, the user will show up in the GAL, but mailbox will never 
appear in ESM even after couple hours so when you email the user you will get 
NDR like account doesn't exist. These two servers are in a different site and 
use their local DC (1) for dsaccess. What we did to temporarily fix this is to 
change the subnet in sites in services so that these two exchange servers point 
to our HQ site so now when you create a user, mailbox shows up and the Ex 
servers use our HQ DCs for dsaccess. Replication appears to be working between 
sites, when you create a user in each site they will show up. One thing I 
noticed is that the bad site's DC does not have DNS installed and is pointing 
to our DNS in HQ. Our windows guy says this should not be a prob. Any ideas?
