belerek -> "8007077f" errors on Exchange 2007 server after physical move (7.Feb.2007 6:38:10 PM)

Hi,
We moved to a different building over the weekend. After the servers came back up, we see these errors in the Application log of the Exchange 2007 server:

Source:  MSExchangeADAccess
Category:  General
Type:  Error
Event ID:  2501

Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGY (PID=1324). The site monitor API was unable to verify the site name for this Exchange computer - Call=DsctxGetContext Error code=8007077f. Make sure that Exchange server is correctly registered on the
DNS server.

-- and --

Event ID:  2604

Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGY (PID=1324). When updating security for a remote procedure call (RPC) access for the Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology service, Exchange could not retrieve the security descriptor for
Exchange server object <MAILSRV>- Error code=8007077f.
The Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology service will continue starting with limited permissions.


These errors appear every 15 minutes or so. Mail flow seems to be working despite these errors, but users are complaining that mail is slower. We thought it may have been issues w/ AD or DNS, but that seems to check out ok. The Host(A) record still exists for the mail server and they're talking to each other fine.

Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks much.

Dang... I moved mine today same building, same network segment just to a new room and I started getting these same errors right after I started the server only I am just now finding them.

Any feedback on this yet. Google had one hit and it was your thread.

The Exchange server wasn't moved in the Active Directory tree was it?

Thanks for the reply and I apologize for the late reply.

I did not move the computer account in ADUC. I double checked to make sure it was in the computers OU and it is still there.Good thought though.

Thanks

Problem resolved. Although I do not have evidence to substantiate this I suspect the error is the result of exchange services hanging during restart or starting out of order.

I rebooted my exchange server last night and had a significant number of services that did not start as was the case nearly a week ago when this first occured. Only a few exchange services had started so I stopped them and hand started them from the top down.

error has not re-appeared.

I have the exact same problem. However I have moved my Exchange 2007 servers to a different OU (Other then Computers). Would this cause a problem?

Yes.

So how would you clear up the issue if a computer was moved to a new OU?

You can try to move it back. I had this same issue when installing 2k7, moving the system out of the default OU caused major problems and I wasn't able to fix it without doing a complete reinstall so that Exchange put everything back the way it was.

After further research into this event I realized one of our servers was not generating this error while 3 others were. The one not generating the errors was on Windows Server 2003 Standard SP2 while the others were SP1. I just loaded SP2 on all of the servers (Enterprise & Standard) and so far so good. It has been 30 minutes with none of these errors while before they ocurred every 15 minutes. I'll keep you posted should things change......

by anychance remote chance, did you have your NICS teamed or Bridged ?
 
curious

rparsons1000 -> RE: "8007077f" errors on Exchange 2007 server after physical move (14.May2007 9:16:40 AM)

No NIC teaming, at least not yet. It's a fairly basic setup, 2 CCR nodes, 2 Hub/CAS and one Exchange 2003 server in the same site and one 2003 server in another site.




BeTaCam -> RE: "8007077f" errors on Exchange 2007 server after physical move (15.May2007 2:57:14 AM)

I think the issue is related to an incorrect start up sequence.
 
Your Exchange 2007 servers were brought up (HT and Mailbox Active Node) before the global catalog/DNS server services in this AD site were up and running. ( I think you have not turned on scavenging of the records in the DNS and it takes a while to start ???)
 
resolution.
 
GC's (and AD Integrated DNS) to boot up first, (verify all services are up @ the started state ) before your exchange 2007 servers (HT/Mailbox/CAS) are brought up in order.
 
This should fix the problem. :)

rparsons1000 -> RE: "8007077f" errors on Exchange 2007 server after physical move (15.May2007 8:17:07 AM)

The resolution for us was Server 2003 Service Pack 2.




BeTaCam -> RE: "8007077f" errors on Exchange 2007 server after physical move (15.May2007 8:58:24 AM)

Thanks for the pointer ! :)
