When we originally went to our 2000/2003 AD domain we had 1 DC that had all the FSMO roles. I have since then transferred all the roles to another server. I want to down the original server long enough to convert it to a virtual server but when I down it all of our user's outlook email clients lock up. Is there a reason that they are only looking at our 1 DC and not the others? I thought that AD was supposed to be redundant so that 1 down server can't take out the network? Any ideas on this would be very helpful. The original server is Windows Server 2003.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In exchange system manager, administrative groups, domain folder, for the exchange server in question, check the properties, directory access tab and see if all domain controllers are registered with exchange. Add as needed.

    I checked that and all three of our DC's on the main site are on the list. All three are also global catalog servers.
