Folks, I am having a little -still awkward- issue here.
I have an HP ProliantDL380p Gen8 server which serves as a Windows 2012 R2 Hyper-V host for 2 VMs.
One VM is a Windows 2012 Server R2 Exchange 2013 Server and the other one is a Windows Server 2012 (not R2) Blackberry Enterprise Server and also a Domain Controller.
Both VMs are members of a single domain which consists of another 2 VMs sitting on another ProliantDL380p Gen8 server that are a Windows Server 2012 R2 File server and also a Domain Controller and a Windows Server 2008 R2 SQL server.
Thing is that on Exchange Server which is not a DC server i can see AD options like Users and Computers, Domains and Trusts, Site and Services etc.
Of course not such a role (AD DS) is installed on the server however i can have access to those settings from this server via Server Manager.
The domain also contains another 3 Domain Members (Physical Machines) with 2 of them being Windows Server 2003 SP2 Domain Controllers and the 3rd one being a Windows 2008 Storage Server.
As you have might figured out we are in the middle of an AD/Exchange migration that will result to have the old servers demoted and removed from the domain.
Also this could be irrelevant but prior to Exchange 2013 installation i have performed an AD preparation using the following command: .\setup /PrepareAD /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms.
I may missing something but i wonder do you have any clue on what's going on?
