Missing permissions tab and service

Posted on 2001-08-29
Last Modified: 2008-03-04
Hi! I have just brought a new Exchange server online. It is the second one in the site. Unfortunately, the mailboxes don't have a permissions tab on the properties page when being viewed from the second (new) Exchange box. This is the server that is holding all of the mailboxes.  Why are there no permissions? I need to know because the original server is going away soon.

Also, The first server (NT4) has a Microsoft Internet Mail service. The second (Win2K Server) doesn't. I have an internet mail connector set up on both. Is this an OS thing or is there another step that I am missing?

Any help with these last few migration issues would be much appreciated!!

Thanks all!!

First I am assuming that you are using Exchange 5.5

from Exchange Admin choose Tools, Options, Permissions.  Make sure that you check "Display Permissions page for all objetcs" and "Display rights and rolls on permissions page"

To add a new IMS connector choose File, New Other, Internet Mail Service.

AAGGGHHH....forgot about that. You are right, that fixed the permissions issue.

I have already installed the Internet mail Service. It's just not showing up in Services like it does on the other server. Any thoughts?

PS I'll get you the 50 points for the first half of the question either way.

so you can see the connector in Exchange Admin but there is no service called "Microsoft Exchange Internet Mail Service" on the server itself?

Have you rebooted the server since you added the connector

On the server check if this key exists

If it does then just reboot.

Cool! It's there. However I have restarted since then but I will bounce it again this evening. Hopefully that solves it.

One last thing (I know I'm asking a lot here), should I replicate the system folders in Exchange? I've replicated the Public Store but I didn't know if the system ones should go too. Soon I will be taking the first Exchange server out of the site.

Thank a bunch for your help Darrenburke.

what you need to read is "XADM: How to Remove the First Exchange Server in a Site [Q152959]".  This is step by step instructions on how to remove the first server.  I have do this many times and it works fine.

Great. I've already done that and performed all of it's instructions. It doesn't say anything about replicating the sys folders so I think I'm good. Thanks!
