Exchange 2000, cant add new domain RUS

I have a domain tree that I just added to my current AD forest.. I am now looking to share the exchange box to send /receive e-mail for both domains..

I have the trusts built and I think that everything is ready to go, I have worked on setting up all the things needed to virtual host on the exchange box (seperate global lists, mailing domains etc..)

I went to add the 2nd domain in my Recipient Update Server on the exchange box and it lets me go through the process of selecting the Domain, Server etc.. When I go to click on finish I get an Exchange system manger error:

Facility: Win32
ID no: c0070005
Exchange System Manager

I found this link while doing some research on it, but my admin account that I am using has full exchange admin rights??

Any idea?

Thanks,

well, the only other thing  I would check is domain perms for your account in that new domain. IT doens't mention it, but maybe you need some domain perms as well...or, check to see that you have local admin perms on the Exchange server.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

hmmm..

I am a member of the Enterprise admins, Domain admins, Schema Admins and Administrators group on Domain A (where the current Exchange Server is located)

On DomainB I added DomainA\Domain Admins to the built in Administrators group, on the Exchange server, both DomainA\Domain Admins and DomainB\Domain Admins are part of the local admin group...

When I ran Forest Prep, I used my credential (as a member of DomainA\Domain Admins)

Any other ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

This one was a permissions thing..

I needed to add the Admin group from domainB to the local admins on the exchange box..
I was an admin in DomainA (who also had Admin Rights to DomainB) , but the DomainB admins werent part of the local admin group..


Thanks for your help...
