The configuration domain controller specified in the registry (%3) was not found in the Sites container in the Active Directory.I had an issue at a customer site where a vitalised multi role Exchange 2010 server was randomly loosing access to Active Directory.There were two Active Directory Domain Controllers with the Global Catalog role in the same Active Directory site as the Exchange 2010 server with highspeed 1gbps LAN between the servers.These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a domain controller is added to a domain.They are updated by the domain controller at set intervals.
To do this, use Microsoft Knowledge Base article 218185, "Microsoft LDAP Error Codes." Use the information in that article to learn more about the cause and resolution to this error.

When the issue occured Exchange 2010 would begin spitting the generic errors you receive whenever there is no Active Directory domain controller available.
