Re: excange server

It is a design problem. Check whether the DNS Server is working properly or not. Seems you will have to do a good work around. Go through the microsoft KBs with the event IDs

Is there a running Domain Controller present? If so DNS info is often stored in Active Directory (A.D. Inegrated DNS Zone).  If this is the case you can just connect a server to the network, join the domian (verify DNS settings in TCI/IP config is pointing to Domain Controller) and then installm DNS from Add/Remove windows components.  Zone data should replicate from AD to new DNS server, to verify open DNS console and look for resource records relevent to the domain.

DNS is the primary name resolution service for Windows Server 2003. Active Directory depends on DNS for domain controller location, and DNS influences Active Directory domain naming. Thus, to fully understand Active Directory, it helps to understand how DNS acts as an integral component in the design of Active Directory.

DNS provides Active Directory with both a name resolution service for domain controller location and a hierarchical design that Active Directory leverages to provide a naming convention that can reflect organizational structure.
Typically, a DNS domain namespace deployed to accommodate the Active Directory mirrors the Active Directory domain namespace. In cases where there is an existing DNS namespace prior to Active Directory deployment, the DNS namespace is typically partitioned for Active Directory, and a DNS subdomain and delegation for the Active Directory forest root is created. Additional DNS domain names are then added for each Active Directory child domain.
DNS data is used to support the location of Active Directory domain controllers also. During or after the creation of the DNS zones used to support Active Directory domains, the zones are populated with DNS resource records that enable network hosts and services to locate Active Directory domain controllers.

Features of active directory

Active Directory think of it has management system for all network LAN PCs in your domain. You can add users to certain enterprise groups, you can disable accounts, push and pull software application better then you can in SMS domain. I use to to clone user accounts or create new user groups. Very easy to learn. To install on Server requires a domain, DNS. If you're using Windows Server 2003 and setup the server to manage active directory all the options for the installation process will appear for installation. There are a lot of info online and in books if you need more info. There are training classing offer at MS Solutions Centers.

What is the acitiv dirctry

Dear , friend

Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services,

Active directory is a directory service used to store information about the network resources across a domain and also centralize the network.

DNS stands for Domain Name Server. These are the servers that match up a fully qualified domain with the proper IP address. This is necessary because computers only understand the IP address for your domain (eg- 123.45.678.90).

Active directory

An application directory partition is represented by a domainDNS object with an instanceType attribute value of DS_INSTANCETYPE_IS_NC_HEAD combined with DS_INSTANCETYPE_NC_IS_WRITEABLE. This domainDNS object represents the application directory partition root (NC head), and is named similar to a regular domain partition, for example, "DC=dynamicdata,DC=fabrikam,DC=com", which corresponds to a DNS name of "". An application directory partition can, therefore, be instantiated anywhere a domain partition can be instantiated. There is no NetBIOS name associated with an application directory partition.

It is possible to nest application directory partitions, that is, an application directory partition can have child application directory partitions. Searches with subtree scope rooted at an application directory partition head will generate continuation references to the child application directory partitions.

An application directory partition replica can only be created on a domain controller that is running on Windows Server 2003 and later and only while the Domain-Naming FSMO role is held by a Windows Server 2003 and later domain controller. In a mixed forest that has both Windows Server 2003 domain controllers and down-level domain controllers (Windows 2000 domain controllers or Windows NT 4.0 primary domain controllers), an attempt to create an application directory partition replica on a down-level domain controller will fail.

An application directory partition also has a corresponding crossRef object in the Partitions container of the configuration partition. The crossRef can be pre-created manually before creating the domainDNS object. The pre-created crossRef object must have the attribute values shown in the following table or the partition creation will fail. If the crossRef object does not exist, the Active Directory server will create one when the application directory partition is created.

Regarding ActiveDirectory Services in Windows system

Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services, including: using the same database, for use primarily in Windows environments. Active Directory also allows administrators to assign policies, deploy software, and apply critical updates to an organization. Active Directory stores information and settings in a central database. Active Directory networks can vary from a small installation with a few hundred objects, to a large installation with millions of objects (though not easily [3]).
Active Directory was previewed in 1996, released first with Windows 2000 Server edition, and revised to extend functionality and improve administration in Windows Server 2003. Additional improvements were made in both Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008.
Active Directory was called NTDS (NT Directory Service) in older Microsoft documents. This name can still be seen in some AD binaries.
There is a common misconception that Active Directory provides software distribution. Software distribution is run by a separate service that uses additional proprietary schema attributes that work in conjunction with the LDAP protocol. Active Directory does not automate software distribution, but provides a mechanism by which other services can provide software distribution.

Replication problem


You are not given a full information in your question, maximum replication problems comes with DNS and Group Policies. If you have any previous System state Backups, restore in both the servers. i think it will resolve your problem. Next time any problem comes give full specifications.
