Explanation
This error usually indicates a communication problem between Exchange and Active Directory. This can happen even if Exchange is installed on a Domain Controller.

  • NetBIOS may have been turned off on the Network Card. This may be the case

    on dual-homed machines.

  • The Network cable may have been removed from the Network Card. This will

    also cause other errors in DNS, etc..

  • The Exchange server may not be able to communicate with Active Directory for

    some reason.

   
User Action
  • Enable NetBIOS on the Network Card.
  • Check the IP Configuration on the Exchange server to ensure that the

    correct DNS Server has been listed.

  • Ensure that Exchange is connected to the network and can communicate with Active Directory properly.
