  • Weird Exchange issue

    We have exchange 2003 sp2 and exchange 2007 sp2 in hybrid mode on windows 2003 r2 servers sp2


    I have a huge problem creating users in exchange 2007.. When i create users in the exchange 2007 server they seem to be missing permissions and rights in their account. My way to resolved that is to move their mailbox back to server 2003 and then back to server 2007.

    What is going on there and how can i fix that from happening?>

    thank you to all who reply.

    Re: Weird Exchange issue

    Certain permissions only apply when the account is used for the first time. However Exchange 2003 and 2007 process mailboxes in different ways, so it may well be that you are expecting something that doesn't happen.

    You are creating the accounts through EMC, and not ADUC? If you try and mail enable accounts for Exchange 2007 servers with ADUC then they don't work, it must be done on Exchange 2007.

      Re: Weird Exchange issue

      the way i do it is this........

      i create the user account in ADUC in the OU that i need. I then go to the exchange 2007 server and then add mailbox to that user..

      the mailbox works but now my user does not show up in the GAL and outlook does not discover the account until i move it to my old exch2k3 server then back to the 2k7 server. dont know what the heck is up.. do i have to do a domain prep all over again? did my connectors break?

      please help this is maddening since Microsoft wont support me cause i use Vmware and not virtual server.

        I think you have a permissions problem with the GAL on the 2007 server.
        Check the GALS permissions

          Unless you are running Exchange in VMWARE Server, which is simply madness, Microsoft should support you with Exchange 2007 on ESXi - but refer to the support doc. Even if you are in a non-supported combination, it shouldn't be a show stopper on support - they may ask you to replicate the issue on physical hardware.

          What happens if you create the user/object through Exchange 2007?
          Have you run the best practises tool to see if that flags any issues?

              its a hard core show stopper.. i brought up the issue with them 2x and they both run that vm tool and say "you have vmware and we dont support your envi unless it is on 2008" very very unfair

              where would i check my Gal Permissions for Exche 2k7?

              when i create users in the ex2k7 server, it breaks the mailbox and the user never shows in the gal but is able to receive mail and login to OWA..

              event log shows

                On, your OS is WIndows 2003. That isn't supported.
                If you were on Windows 2008 then it would be supported. They should still provide you will best effort support.

                There is nothing wrong with using VMWARE, as long as you use an appropriate product. VMWARE Server is not appropriate. VMWARE ESXi is.

                0x80070005 is access denied.

                What about the best practises tool?
                This sounds like an inheriant issue with the build of Exchange - used a Service Account to run the services for example, rather than the built in services.

                  Re: Weird Exchange issue

                  I ran the Best Practices tool, i get this error stating that i have a connection agreement that orphaned.

                  Active Directory Connector connection agreement 'Users: xxxxxx-ny.com - xxxxx\xxxxx Consultants' does not have a valid value for 'msExchHomeSyncService'. This is usually caused by the abrupt removal of the Active Directory Connector service. Objects in the scope of this agreement will not be replicated.

                  I see this error and it asks for the ADC manager snap-in. This error is related to a 2000 2k server. as well as a server 5.5. error
                  i am using exchange 2003 and server 2007 in mixed mode on windows sever 2k3 r2?
                  why am i gettiing this and how can i repair it..
                  I am also getting a DACL write error.

                    ADC is for Exchange 5.5 to connect to an AD domain. ADC should have been removed before you can install Exchange 2007. The BPA should have given you a link to a Technet article on how to remove it. You need to do that.
