    One of the stranger things I've seen...

    So I just installed a new exchange server (yeah, I know "my condolences"), sorry, work is work.

    Anyway, I've been noticing a few 1054 event ID which usually indicates a DNS config issue, well needless to say DNS is straight, netdiag looks good, etc.
    So I ping the domain to see how it responds.

    This is what I get:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>ping domain

    Pinging domain.local [192.168.7.10] with 32 bytes of data:

    Reply from 192.168.7.10: bytes=32 time=-148ms TTL=128
    Reply from 192.168.7.10: bytes=32 time=-148ms TTL=128
    Reply from 192.168.7.10: bytes=32 time=-148ms TTL=128
    Reply from 192.168.7.10: bytes=32 time=-148ms TTL=128

    Ping statistics for 192.168.7.10:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = -148ms, Maximum = -148ms, Average = 1073741676ms

    Give me some love and tell me why this is occurring. I've done due diligence and have yet to find a good reason. I have various other servers attached the same way, same OS, patch level, config et al and I don't see them exhibiting this behavior.

    peace

    P.S. I'm not entirely concerned because it seems to function correctly, I just can't stand having any errors, at all.

    Sorry...whats the version of the exchange server??

    2003?? or 2007??

    Dont mind me...I have the reputation of asking "dumbass" questions


    I think it maybe a GP issue??

    User Action
    To troubleshoot the network connectivity or configuration problem, try one or all of the following:

    In Event Viewer, click System, and check for any networking-related messages, such as Netlogon messages, that indicate a network connectivity issue.
    At the command prompt, type netdiag, and note any errors. Those errors usually have to be resolved before Group Policy processing can continue.
    At the command prompt, type gpupdate, and then check Event Viewer to see if the Userenv 1054 event is logged again.
    To verify that the domain controller can be contacted through Domain Name System (DNS), try to access \\mydomain.com\sysvol\mydomain.com, where mydomain.com is the fully qualified DNS name of your domain.
    Verify that you can access the domain controller by using tools such as the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in.
    Check to see whether other computers on your network are having the same problem.
    If this computer is a part of a cross-forest domain, verify that the forest for the user account is currently available and can be contacted by the computer on which the Group Policy processing failed.

    No thats a good question to ask MLF dont worry.

    Is there a more exact error message or is that all? Is there a certain time(s) this is happening?

    muhuhahaha!!

    Exchange 2003.
    I've already verified Active directory users and groups works fine, gpupdate gives the 1054 error immediately.
    I've read all the KB articles related to this and none of that needs fixing.
    I can reach the sysvol.
    No other servers are having this error, none. Not even close.
    It happens with all the time.

    Is it getting interesting yet?

    P.S. I think it's the NIC drivers but they are correct and approved and it has all the latest patches. Or my other idea is that it's the Dual core AMD Opteron 2.6GHz.

    Sorry for the double post but SirDice, you rock!!! That's got to be it. I searched all over this morning for negative ping time and didn't come across this wiki. Thanks muchly and I'll be sure to return the favor when I can.

    I'll update this if the fix works.

    Thank again.

    I don't think you ask stupid questions. I have read lots of your replys and they all seem to be logical to me.
    From experience, things have to be asked multiple times in order to establish the facts. Seems that the initial stated "facts" that a user reveals when seeking help aren't usually fact... sometimes.
