Exchange Bootup Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I am having an issue with an Exchange server upon startup. The following errors are displayed on setup.

    Unhandled Exception "The Exchange Topology service on server localhost did not return a suitable domain controller."

    Stack Trace: at Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Directory.DSAccessTopologyProvider.GetConfigDCInfo(Boolean throwOnFailure)

    Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGYSERVICE.EXE (PID=528). Topology discovery failed, error 0x80040a02 (DSC_E_NO_SUITABLE_CDC). Look up the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) error code specified in the event description. To do this, use Microsoft Knowledge Base article 218185, "Microsoft LDAP Error Codes." Use the information in that article to learn more about the cause and resolution to this error. Use the Ping or PathPing command-line tools to test network connectivity to local domain controllers.

    I have done the following:

    -  Checked connectivity (ping and nslookup)

     - Ran NLTEST and DCDIAG

     - Installed all windows updates.

     - Ran policytest. The error 1332 came up when I ran this.

    I need urgent assistance with this as the Exchange server as been down for a day now.
