SYMPTOMS

In an Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) environment, you exclude a domain controller by using the StaticExcludedDomainControllers option for the Set-ExchangeServer command. However, Exchange Server 2007 SP1 servers still try to connect the domain controller by using Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Local Security Authentication Server (LSASS) calls.

Note The StaticExcludedDomainControllers option is used to exclude a list of domain controllers that the server uses.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because Exchange Server 2007 SP1 only excludes the domain controller from the list for the configuration domain controller role but not for the global catalog role. Therefore, the domain controller is still involved in global catalog-related communications.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, install Update Rollup 9 for Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1.
