Exchange 2000 server not recieving email (not a dns Issue)


I have been having a strange problem for the last 2 days on my exchange server.
My personal address can send, but not recieve email. (not a dns problem)
the administrative address can send and recieve email fine. I also get some strange errors

When i click on the Exchange system manager then on the recipients i get this message below.

an invalid ADSI pathname was passed  
ID no: 80005000  

I click ok then get this message

An operations error occurred
Facility: LDAP Provider
ID no:80072020
Exchange System manager

I also go into Active Directory to add a new user and all goes weel until i go to the Mailbox Store:  there is nothing there, nothing to select.

Try doing a CSVDE export of the administrator and also your account and see what attributes differ - especially the Exchange-specific attributes - to see if there may be a problem with a user's attributes once an account is created.  If they are different and this looks to be the problem, then there maybe something amiss in the AD for your Exchange server and service.

You must have CSVDE on the system and it is really rather simple once you play with it some.  The full instructions are located here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=327620

The quick and dirty for CSVDE would be
csvde -f output.csv -r "(sAMAccountName=administrator)"

This would get the admin's attributes.  Change the output filename (because you don't want to overwrite it next time you export) and the username for your next export.

If you want to get all attributes of all users, you could do the following:
csvde -f output.csv -r "(objectClass=user)"

Then that sounds like Active Directory doesn't recognize there is an Exchange server.  Has anyone been playing with ADSI Edit or LDP lately?  Can you use Exchange System Manager and manage the Exchange server?

David WilhoitCommented:
Are you sure the services are even started? I mean, the message you're getting is really striaghtforward....wait a minute. Somebody removed the everyone group from the exchange org permissions...otherwise, the admin account would experience the same issue. Applied any security templates lately?

Have you checked limits imposed on the message store and the affected accounts?  The AD attributes are mDBStorageQuota, mDBOverQuotaLimit, and mDBOverHardQuotaLimit.  The attribute that specifies whether they are using the store defaults is mDBUseDefaults.  The numbers are expressed as KB and not MB so you could have limited someone to 10 K instead of 10 MB.

no limits are set.

What about the addresses listed for your account?  Are they valid and working?  The SMTP, X400, X500, etc.?

Fixed it....  it was a licensing issue..  my serverthought it had 0 lexchange licenses.   i changed that restarted the services and whoooo
hoooo  email is back up and running..  stupid mistake, also you think the error message could have been a little more clear
!  just glad it's working again and for the help.  also since i fixed it myself, do i get my own points:)

PasdargentCommented:
Way to go.  Glad that it was something benign and not that AD or Exchange was hosed.  Since you solved your own problem, you could probbly request a refund.  That or you could toss just a few points our way for helping troublehsoot?  j/k :-)
