Hi !

I did some changes in my AD Environment and everything is working good except for Exchange. I get the following error msg and Exchange is completle offline.

Microsoft Exchange Error

The following error(s) were reported while loading topology information:
get-ExchangeServer
Failed
Error:
Could not find any Global Catalog in forest umcb.local.
Global catalog not found in forest "umcb.local".


get-UMServer
Failed
Error:
Could not find any Global Catalog in forest umcb.local.
Global catalog not found in forest "umcb.local".


What I did in my domain was to remove the only domain controler by replacing it with a new one with different name. Now that the 5 roles have been switched and replica has take place. I did uncheck the Global Catalog mark from the NTDS propreties on the old server and since that moment Exchange stopped working.

Is there a way to tell exchange that the Global Catalog has moved ? and where to find it ?

At the moment of writing theses lines:
The New DC is online with Global Catalog, 5 FSMO roles
The OLD DC is online with no Global Catalog, 0 FSMO but still a domain controler (did not remove it using DCPROMO yet) 

Also I did force replication before unchecking Global Catalog on the old server.
