jheckman -> OWA with Child Domains (9.May2007 3:44:00 PM)

I have a parent domain with 5 child domains setup (all 2003 sp2, 2003 domain, 2000 forest) . We have one exhange 07 server that sits in the parent domain. The users in the child domains can log into their domain and connect via outlook but OWA will not let them log in. Below is the error the user sees and in the exchange app log it just states the domain controller for the child can not be found .. HELP

MSExchange AdAccess Error #2130 .. I can ping the child dc and ran netdiag and all looks fine .. child domain users can authenicate via outlook .. Process w3wp.exe

User sees after the time zone screen appears .. if I purposely put in wrong PW then the timezone screen will not appear .. using windows integrated for OWA

User host address:

Exception type: Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Directory.ADTransientException
Exception message: Could not find any available Domain Controller in domain DC=eastern,DC=iamaw,DC=org.

To fix the OWA error for users who reside in the parent directory I had to select the inherit parent permissions checkbox in the security tab but the account in child domain already had that checked .. I compared all security settings side by side and all match ???

I'm also having this problem. I've done everything jheckman has done.

Permissions appear to be set everywhere they should be and communication is trafficking to and from the child domain...

My domain forest has one tree with a parent and two children.

Here's my event log for the error:

Process w3wp.exe (PID=4188). Exchange Active Directory Provider could not find an available domain controller in domain DC=child,DC=yada,DC=yadayada,DC=com. This event may be caused by network connectivity issues or configured incorrectly DNS server. This event may also occur if you have not configured correctly your multiple Active Directory sites.

Here's the error as seen on the site:

Ok, I've solved this problem for my domains.

I did it by running the exchange setup with the /PrepareDomain arg on the child domain PDCs...

OWA works fine now...

Cheers! [:D]

Thanks that worked great .. It was a pain however to find and download the 32 bit version .. The child PDC is 32 bit and I had to install .Net 2.0 and powershell but after it ran web mail started working fine .. THANKS
