I have my exchange server 2000 installed, and the server is a Domain
with DNS Service installed. I found that when I open the mmc for "Active
Users and Computers", the CPU comsumption becomes 100% and the mmc takes
a few minutes to start up. I checked on MS KB and found this type of
occurs when the DNS have incorrect entries, but I checked and I think this
the case. I wonder if this is due to the LDAP conflict? I read on books that
Directory Site and the Dirctory Services both use port 389. It should be
before bringing a server with exchange to a DC. I use netstat to check the
conenctions, I found that the server made many many connections to itself
ranged from 1000 to 55000. I guess the slow response is because the server
trying each port.
Currently the exchange organization is running in mixed mode. A NT4 BDC with
exchange 5.5 and a W2K DC with Exchange 2000. The LDAP port is not changed
and still using port 389.
Any hints?? Thanks.
