Exchange haywire!

By Psyadi ·
I have recently had a problem with my exchange 2000 server, running on Win2k server with Active Directory. The problem is that the clients would take ages to log into exchange, outlook would just freeze, and then finally log in.
I ran service pack 3 for windowns and for exchange 2k Server.
After the Exchange server came back up the users are not able to log in at all... the long pause is still there and when outlook finally responds it is coming up with a login box. asking for name, domain and password. the login however is not the network login as it comes up with an invalid login message whenever any network user or admin tries to log in.
ANy help that you can give would be gratefully received!!!

Deploy a 'cache only DNS server' or 'secondary DNS server' close to the client PCs.

Thanks but the error was an entry that SP3 added to the registry and needed to be removed.

If these are Win XP Pro workstations, and you haven't installed XP SP1, do so. There is a known issue with XP Pro that can cause these sorts of things to happen with Outlook and Exchange. It has to do with RPC traffic and a registry setting that is set incorrectly. I believe it was completely fixed in SP1. Hope this helps!

Sorry but they are Win 2k and it is not the workstations but a problem with the server.
