Comments
 
This event occurred after one of our DCs crashed. Appears to be similar to Event ID 2090 from the same source. Solution: In Exchange System Manager drill down to your server, right click, choose Properties and go to the "Directory Access" tab. Pull the drop down to select the category where the missing DC is listed, remove that DC and add one that can be contacted. Repeat for all categories as necessary.
As per Microsoft: "This message indicates that the configuration domain controller specified by the registry key does not exist. DSAccess will revert to the standard mechanism of automatically choosing the configuration domain controller. This event can occur if the Administrator misspells the hostname in the HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MsExchangeDSAccess\Instance0\ConfigDCHostName registry key on the Exchange server". See MSEX2K3DB for additional information about this event.
