Hi guys,
I have just inherited a new site, and it looks like they are having issues with thier main dc.
I recently installed exchange 2003 on windows 2003, but all of a sudden exchange has started fall off, on closer inspection, it looks like the DC is having some sort of network issue, affecting dns and GC.
Current environment
2 DC's
1 Exchange server. All windows 2003.
My question, would it help to make the second dc a Global Catalog server? so as to maintain some sort of redundancy while we figure out what to do with the Primary DC. Any issues to expect? or is there no point?
