Checking Domain Controller Properties

For optimum SSSE performance, install PIMSI Engine and the DCOM Exchange Connector (if using Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 or 2007) on computers in a domain whose initially installed Domain Controller (DC) includes a copy of the Active Directory Global Catalog (GC).

The following procedure briefly describes how to determine whether a Domain Controller contains a copy of the catalog.

This task is a step in Roadmap for Installing SSSE.

To check Domain Controller properties

  1. On a Domain Controller computer, navigate to Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, and then Active Directory Sites and Services.
  2. Locate the correct site and select the Domain Controller server in the Servers folder.
  3. Expand the server object.
  4. Select NTDS Settings, and then right-click and select Properties.
  5. Click the General tab, and inspect the Global Catalog check box.

    If the Global Catalog check box is selected, then the Domain Controller contains a copy of the Active Directory Global Catalog.
