The client has Windows 2000 server with Exchange 2000 and Proxy
HD is partitioned to 4GB and 13GB.
They called me last month after the exchange went down.
Looking into the event viewer is reported HD full + other errors.
I clean partition C an moved most of the swap file to partition D.
Re-booting and everything was working fine.
I suggested that they will get the company that setup their exchange
to set it up correctly.
The client didn't follow my advise and Thursday night the exchange
went down again.
HD (partition C) was full again with 1 MB available.
I moved the rest of the swap file to D, but I only got 100MB free and
the exchange didn't work.
I had 1.5GB of log messages in the MDBdata folder.
I restarted in safe mode (all services are stopped) and moved this
logs to a folder on partition D.
I DID NOT move the EDB.log and EDB0000.log with are in the NT root.
This freed 1.5GB.
Rebooting the server and I don't ahve the HD full error, but the
exchange doesn't work.
Users who are trying to check their emails get the error message that
their folders are not polled.
Event viewer is showing DNS errors :
event id: 5774
Registration of DNS record'_kpasswd_udp. XXXXXX.com 600 in srv 0 100
464 proxy. XXXXXX.com' failed with the following error:
DNS server unable to interpret format
(XXXX,com is the client domain.)
this error repeats itself couple of time.
If the DNS has a problem that I guess ht exchange will not work.
Other error messages in the event viewer are:
Event ID: 101 source:w3svc
The server was unable to add the virtual root '/Exadmin' for the
directory"\\BackofficeStorage' due tot eh following error: The system
can't find the path specified.The data is the error code
Event ID: 10005 Source:dcom
DCOM got error " The dependency service or group failed to start."
Attempting to start the service IISADMIN with arguments"" in order to
runt he server.
MS knowledge base about the 5774 error is not too helpful.
