Directory Access

How To...

Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server gives administrators the ability to view the topology generated by Directory Access. Directory Access also gives administrators the ability to manually add and remove servers from the topology. Exchange 2000 Server Service Pack 2 (SP2) provides new information about the Directory Access topology.

Important   In a multi-domain Active Directory forest, a computer running Exchange in a child domain cannot contact a global catalog server when all domain controllers in the parent domain go offline. Without at least one global catalog server to provide Active Directory information, Exchange cannot start. To ensure that a computer running Exchange anywhere in an Active Directory forest is always able to access a global catalog server in any other part of the forest, you must configure two-way trusts between every domain. This is the only way to provide true fault-tolerance for your Exchange organization.
