My company's Exchange server got hacked a few days ago and I'm trying to clean it up...  After a few attempts of fixing the problem. I finally just reformated and reinstalled everything....  My problem is that I had all my mailboxes backed up on veritas backup (using 9.0)...  I've reinstalled Veritas and trying to restore... The problem is I can't connect to Exchange through Veritas.. Even using the administrators logon it gives me an error saying "Logon Account " " failed to access "\\SERVER\Microsoft Exchange Mailbox". Access Denied." I've looked at what veritas says and they say its a bad logon...  Which its not its the main Administrator...  The other symptoms that are shown is when I go to the M: Drive (The one that exchange makes automatically) and look at the the securtiy permissions it says that it can't be shown...   The systems seemes to work fine other than this but i really need those mailboxes and also to make sure I'm not setup for another hack...  I've looked through my users to make sure no new ones that might have higher powers but nothing looks new....  Also I know there is a place in the Active Directory where you can change the permissions of the Exchange but I've scoured ADSI and everything looks ok.....  Any ideas anyone???

Interesting...these are the same accounts? you didn't lose the domain controller and the accounts, right? Since you reinstalled Exchange, any other errors in the applog or syslog that are odd? I'm wondering if the IIS services are started, and all the Exchange virtual directories are online. If they aren't, restart the default website, and refresh the view.

If Veritas still cannot connect, post the errors from the event log. Also, make sure the veritas account has the rights to backup the exchange server, since you rebuilt the box from the ground up, perms may have gotten lost.

Thanks Kidego
The website is good....  I looked at the event logs nothing is showing out of the ordinary....   The problem I'm having is that I can't even backup the new mailboxes I've created (With new permissions) it won't connect any which way to exchange....  Its wierd....

I meant perms with the veritas account...you installed veritas with the Administrator account? If so, check the perms on your Exchange org, see who has full Exchange Administrator permissions. Also, take the error message you are receiving, and check it on the seagate website, they may have a document that relates to the problem.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Yeah andyalder..  I really think its a AD/Exchange problem and not a veritas problem....  I've removed and reinstalled Veritas 2 times now and each time the same problem...    And Kideogo yes I did install with the administrator account....  Where is the best place to see who has full Exchange Administrator permissions for my Exchange OU?  Thanks everyone for the help

In the ESM, properties of the org object. Check to see what account has rights. Was veritas installed with the admin account before this?

Have you been delegated rights to the Org:
System Manager - Right Click Organization - Delegate Control

Sorry wrong key, I'll start again.
Have you been delegated rights to the Org:
System Manager - Right Click Organization - Delegate Control - Next
Are you in the list, if not you will need to be.

Also this should be checked on the Administrative Group as well.

Oh and have you got a MAPI client installed?
I always try to do the following for Veritas:

 - Login in as the account you are running the services as
 - Configure a MAPI Profile with the same name as the account, i.e. Administrator
 - Configure Exchange as a service on the MAPI profile and test you can access your mail using this profile.
 - Make sure you have Delegated rights to the Exchange Organization and Administrative Group to the account BE uses

I reckon is the MAPI thats stopping you

Hi. I am having the same problem. I have BE 9.1 with exchange agent.
I am using the domain administrator to login and it says access is denied.
These are the steps I have taken:
1. Installed Veritas with administrator login.
2. Configured the MAPI on veritas with admin.
3. Installed Outlook on backup machine.
I have been trying to figure this out for days, and i have not figured it out.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Omid
