is an older Exchange  running on a DC that is acting as a global catalogue server?

looks like NSI\NSI-EXCHANGE$
doesn't have proper access to AD... is NSI\NSI-EXCHANGE$ a DC?

have you run addiag?

NSI-EXCHANGE$ is a member server but not a DC.

Have not run addiag.  Not familiar with it.

Thanks

chicagoan,

I have researched addiag.exe.  Could you give me a little background on your suggestion to run it?  Would I run it on the Exchange server or our DC?  What would I be looking for?

Thanks!

This is how I solved the issue.  Open ADSI edit (make sure you have the configuration container in the mmc) you can get this from the support tools for win2k.  in ADSI edit open the "Configuration Container" ( if you do not see this you need to install the support tools version.  On the first sub menu of the configuration container right click and go to properties click on security tab.  I just added the group "Exchange Enterprise Servers" and gave them "manage replication topology" rights.  Hope that helps.
