We recently renamed the OU which contains our Exchange Server in AD (both 2000).  After renaming the OU, we started getting events
Microsoft Exchange System Attendant has detected that the local computer is not a member of group 'cn=Exchange Domain Servers,cn=Users,dc=domainname,dc=com'. System Attendant is going to add the local computer into the group.

The current members of the group are 'CN=exchangeserver,OU=OU_Servers,DC=domainname,DC=com; CN=netadminwhoaddedhimselfheretorunautilthatrequiredit,OU=Administration,OU=CEA,DC=domainname,DC=com; '.

The Exchange server correctly gets itself as being a member, but for some reason does not recognize itself in the list.

Restarting the SA is not an option currently.  Is there any other way to get it to work?

Also you should check, if the Server is still member of the Exchange Domain Server group. Try to throw it out, click OK and then readd the server to this group.

Thanks for the comment, but the link applies to a renamed domain, not OU.  And as I mentioned originally, the server is already listed in the group.  The message in the event log shows that it successfully queried the membership and received a list back that included utself.  It appears that the Exchange server doesn't recognize itself in the list.
