I am using Win2k backup and I believe you are correct...that it is not
registering its services in DNS. I set up as the
internal domain for the recovery server. It has AD and DNS on it as I
had mentioned earlier. Since AD is linked to DNS can I delete the domain
in DNS and then add it back? I know you can with non-AD domains. DNS
does show the MX record for the recovery domain and when queried it
answers properly, but I know that is different than registering its
services in DDNS. I setup the primary DNS server is our valid FQDN
domain to act as a secondary for the recovery domain.

What are you using to restore with?  What application? If NTBackup, have
a look at DNS to be sure that the server is properly registered.

        Hi list,


        I am attempting to setup an Exchange 2000 recovery server and
have run into a snag. I can browse through the network to find the
Exchange recovery server yet when I choose to restore to it I get a
message stating that either the server is not an Exchange server or the
services are not turned on - neither of which are true. I have followed
the directions from the MS PDF entitled "Mailbox recovery for MS
Exchange server" in setting up the new server. I can even query the
ports via telnet successfully. I have not updated any Exchange service
packs but I do have SP4. AD, DNS (actually DDNS) and such are also
running on the recovery machine. 


        Thanks for any ideas,
