Can't connect to Exchange 5.5

By bandit ·
After updating virus defs. last friday and reapplying SP5 I now can't connect to my exchange server. when i try to logon to the domain as Exadmin through the NT server running Exchange it states that computer acount is not valid or the password is wrong, although I can log onto the PDC as Exadmin no problem. It also state in Server Manager that a trust relationship failed with the Exchange server even though it's a member server. Also if I logon to the server running Exchange as just administrator and try to start through start/programs/ when
Exchange Administrator starts it asks what server I would like to logon to and when I type in the exchange server name it states that there is a communication problem and won't start. Running TCP/IP Netbeui and IPX/SPX and whats strange is that in the browser the all servers show up and the Internet works. Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

Can't connect to Exchange 5.5

The problem is with the computer account on the Domain Controller. First you will need to remove it from the domain. Delete the computer from Server Manager and go to network properties on the Exchange machine to remove it from the domain. Then after the restart (log on locally) you can join the domain again. Once you have joined the domain, you will have a new computer account.

Hope this helps.
