I adopted a junk environment, and I'm trying to stabilize it before I can migrate it to something better. My Exchange environment consists of
- (1) front-end server
- (1) smart-host behind the firewall
- (5) back-end servers
These servers are on Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2.
For some reason, the front-end server has a DNS server role on it. This is causing problems with Active-Sync since the DNS server is randomly taking ports, and sometimes takes the Active-Sync port. I already have an Active Directory server with the DNS role. Is a Microsoft Exchange 2003 Front-End Server required to be a DNS server?
