No problem! Actually a coworker corrected me on one thing I forgot to
mention. If Exchange is installed on a GC, then if the GC role
becomes unresponsive, Exchange will fail to use any of the other
available Global Catalogs. You have to restart the Exchange services
to get it to use anything other than itself. Also, Exchange should
not be installed on simply a DC, instead make it a GC. Global
Catalogs support NSPI, which is used for Outlook name lookup requests.
Domain Controllers do not support NSPI.
Granted, later versions of Outlook use RFR (referral, allowing Outlook
to talk directly to a GC) by default, but all initial calls are made
via NSPI, regardless of Outlook version.
