  • Recreate Exadmin Folder

    I need to re create the Exadmin folder in my front-end Server
    i tried all posts and still no luck
    when you browse through the exchange system manager to protocols - http virtual server - and try to create a new VD , you have no option to choose the Exadmin path and your stricted to add Public or mailbox folder, etc........

    i reinstalled in disaster recovery mode but no folders were created

    Can anyone help please???

    Not to sound silly but have you tried to install exchange admin tools
    remotely and trying to connect and see if it works.

        Yes i did try this link but i did it with the meta editor because i use Windows2000 Server and my IIS is not 6
        the thing is
        i deleted the exadmin from the HTTP virtual server in the exchange system manager
        and as far as i understand i think when u deleted the d2smb or update the value to 0 or delete everything from IIS and restart the exchange system attendant, it will create again all directories available at the HTTP virtual server and because i dont have the Exadmin there, it didnt get created when i did the previous steps.
        maybe i am wrong but i still need your help

        is there any tools or tests i can run??
        any help would be appreciated
        Thanks

            well, first link is new for me, i tried it but nothing
            i also remember now that i deleted my Exchange Virtual Server not only exadmin
            the whole thing was deleted
            and i created it again but of course when you click properties of this virtual server are not the same properties of the default one.

            Question: if i uninstall and then install again??
            what am i going to lose???
            should i do it??
            i cant afford any loss and cant risk so please be sure before answering

              Ok, so you have a backup of your database, right? In that case, since it's your only server, I'd go for a complete Organization removal, then reinstall Exchange like it was the first server.

                  You can restore MetaDataBase from IIS if you want. Go to Backup Tool and save the MetaDataBAse on the backend servers. Then try to restore that data oon the FrontEnd Server

                        It's a big problem here.
                        Reinstaling the Exchange will be a hard job.

                            Don't know of you like this articles and don't know if there is any solution of it..

                            but.. if its already broken, you can always try it.. i guess.

                            already read the following articles?

                            An incorrect virtual directory path in IIS
                            This issue may occur for either of the following reasons: The Exadmin virtual directory is missing or was renamed.
                            The local path of the Exadmin virtual directory points to an incorrect directory.
                            Exchange System Manager uses HTTP to connect to a public folder store and connects to the Exadmin virtual directory under the default Web site. This virtual directory is created by the Setup program during installation. If this virtual directory is missing or was renamed, Exchange System Manager cannot connect to the public folders on this server, and you may receive the error message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section.

                            If the Exadmin virtual directory was deleted, run the Setup program from the Exchange CD to reinstall the virtual directory. The Setup program recognizes that this virtual directory is missing and re-creates the virtual directory. If the Exadmin virtual directory was renamed, rename the virtual directory back to "Exadmin."

                            If the issue still exists, examine the local path of the Exadmin virtual directory. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Start Internet Information Services Manager on the Exchange computer.
                            2. Expand Default Web Site.
                            3. Right-click the Exadmin virtual directory, and then click Properties.
                            4. Verify that the local path on the Virtual Directory tab points to \\.\BackOfficeStorage.

                            Note If you make any changes to the configuration, stop and then restart the default Web site.

                            If the Exadmin virtual directory was deleted, you cannot re-create it by using the Internet Information Services (IIS) snap-in. Additionally, you cannot use the user interface to add many of the entries that are added during setup.
