MSEXCHANGESA Event 9186 and 9187 after an OU rename

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.

Yes, but may point into the same direction. See the following articles:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;271335&Product=exch2k

which directs more closely to your problem.

Use ADSIEdit and walk through the ADS tree to find your server and make sure, that the entry there are correct, what you find in the Exchange Domain servers tree. Note, that there may be several entries in ADS and may be one of them is not updated. You can also make a search in ADSIEDIT for your old OU and try to find all entries, which are still pointing to your old OU to update them.

Another issue may be (if you have more than one domain controller), that the entries are not (yet) replicated. In this case, make sure, that ADS replication is working (event log errors or by changing the domain controller within the MMS console and comparing, what you see on the different servers).

If you use ADSIEdit, use it from a XP or 2003 machine, as the editor is better.

Be carefully if you change any ADS entries, as you can destroy it. Make a system backup before, if you are unsure with ADS!!!
