  • major permission problems after upgrade to w2003

    single dc was windows 2000 sp4 with exchange 2000 sp3 on same box - everything seemed ok.

    we had to add an additional dc (w2003) - eventlog, except seclog was not accessible (access denied) and iis didn't work in any way (could not start publishing service)

    so we decided to upgrade the pdc to w2003

    upgraded to exchange 2003 - no issues - very nice.

    upgraded box now with windows 2000 and exchange 2003 and now cannot
    access Exchange System Manager, get error
    "Access is denied, Facility Win32, ID No: c0070005, Exchange System
    Manager" click ok and it quits.

    similarly, I cannot access "Active Directory Users & Computers", it runs
    ok but when I click on a user object or any object for that matter I
    get;

    "Microsoft Active Directory - Exchange Extension, Access is denied,
    Facility Win32, ID No: c0070005, Exchange System Manager" I click ok
    then the MMC quits.

    This has basically crippled the admin of the system, but the exchange
    system is actually functioning ok from any client. I get the same
    errors if I try to administer the domain from a client, signed on as
    administrator. clients can log into the domain without issue.

    the server allows me to do other admin functions as if the admin
    usercode has the correct privilege.

    also, when I run event viewer, it will only let me see the security log,
    all of the others say, access is denied.

    in the end this server is absolutely unusable.

    the domain has no fully qualified domain name (just: Server1.ABC. ) - i thought perhaps that could be a problem, but i couldn't find issues about that...

    If anyone else has seen this or something similar, I would appreciate some help.

    thanks a lot in advance,

      adprep

      of course i did adprep before attaching the second w2003 dc and before upgrading, but perhaps one colleague of mine (he is no longer in our company) tried to attach a w2003 dc for the first time without doing adprep /forstprep -> /domainprep before.

      is there any possibility to check that out and to repair the w2000 dc if that is the reason for the hole crap?? (as i wrote before - adprep is done in the meantime)

      thanks a lot,

      christoph
