In AD Sites and Services, drill down to the "NTDS Settings" object
underneath the server, and open its property sheet.


On the General tab is "Global Catalog". Check it. Apply the change.


It'll take a few minutes for the catalog to build. There is an event log
entry, which number escapes me, when the new GC starts acting as a GC.

Importance: High




I have windows 2003 server on which active directory is configured.
Previously I was having active directory on windows 2000 server. What I
did , I had configured Additional Domain controller named as backup.
Later I changed all the role of that server from active directory. 

Then I had upgraded that machine to windows 2003 domain controller. 

Now the problem is that when I start the migration process of exchange
2003 it give me error that no Global Catalog Server could be contacted.
It gives the error in 3 step of phase-I of exchange migration. It shows
the machine as domain controller

Please help, how can I make my domain controller to work as a global
catalog server.
