Gain control of a domain (part 2)

Here is the reference to my original question:

I am working to gain full control of our exchange / domain server.
So I can properly delegate control and other functions…
“Source of Problem”:
      Former Administrator, who was in charge of exchange and other domain functions, deleted his account from the system.  Now I am left trying to gain control


http://www.experts-exchange.com/Security/Q_20934572.html

My dilemma still remains: I follow the steps as per the link from Microsoft and what I get at the end is an “error”.  
It says:            Failed to grant permission of DOMAIN\user on this object:
/dc=com/dc=DOMAIN/cn=Configuration/cn=Service/cn=Microsoft Exchange

Can you undelete his account by restoring a domain controller from a backup, prior to his departure and account deletion ?

Sadly to say, I do not have a backup of such date to do so.  And the server is a live server, thus taking it down during work hours wouldn’t be a good thing.

I have thought of searching the registry for his system ID and perhaps replacing it with an account that I will make up; all in hopes that it will give that account the control needed to delegate control over exchange and other future functions.
