Exchange 2000 server not found

By jcross ·
I have a workstation running Windows XP and connecting to Windows 2000 SBS Domain. When I add the service for Exchange Server, I am able to resolve the name. I am able to start up Outlook 2000 (which was installed by SBS) and access my e-mail and calendar. When I shut down Outlook and reopen it I get a timeout message that it could not find the Exchange server. When I reinstall the service everything works again until I close Outlook.

can you ping the name of the exchange server when you get the timeout?

if not, check DNS for a host entry or add a host file with an entry for the Exchange server.

In the Outlook accounts tab, try changing the name of the exchange server, to its IP address.

Hi,

Outlook 2000 and OutlookXP(2002) needs a GC (Global Catalog Server). The most resent failure is, that if you enabled your DC (SBS) as an an GC, you must restart the Server. If you dont restart the Server the Client isn't be able to find your Exchange Server. In an Windows 2000 Environment the GC is anwsering 80-90% of all queries in AD, there for you need the GC and the Exchange running. Older Outlook Clients like 97 are connecting directly to the Exchange Server, and he asks the GC (as a Proxy) and replys the anwser to the Client.

Hope it helps

regards

Frobo
