You have a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 organization that was deployed in a multiple-domain environment. In this organization, the network connections between domains are slow, or cross-domain network traffic is restricted.
In this deployment, it takes a long time for the Exchange Management Console to successfully load. For example, it takes 10 minutes to load.
This problem occurs because Exchange Server 2007 tries to connect each domain controller of each domain before the Exchange Management Console is successfully loaded.
To resolve this problem, install Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 on the server.
For more information about Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1, see the following Exchange Help topic:
After you install this update rollup, Exchange Server 2007 does not connect every domain controller when you open the Exchange Management Console. Instead, Exchange Server 2007 connects a domain controller only when it is necessary.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
