Hi,
I recently completed setting up a new 2003 exchange server that is supposed to coexist with our existing 5.5 server. When I run the verification tools I get numerous errors. I am able to verify the name within outlook but cannot actual open the new mailbox. It states that the server is unavailable. The following are the errors I am receiving.

--------> Config results from (objectClass=*) ...

DN = CN=NT04,CN=Servers,CN=WORKRITE,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=Workrite Uniform Company Inc,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=workrite,DC=net
  object-class = top$server$msexchexchangeserver
  The exchange server does not have a responsible MTA server (msExchResponsibleMtaServer)

DN = CN=Microsoft DSA,CN=NT04,CN=Servers,CN=WORKRITE,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=Workrite Uniform Company Inc,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=workrite,DC=net
  object-class = top$msexchsitereplicationservice
  The srs contains no home-mdb (homeMdb)
  The srs contains no home-mta (homeMta)

DN = CN=Public Information Store (NT04),CN=First Storage Group,CN=InformationStore,CN=NT04,CN=Servers,CN=WORKRITE,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=Workrite Uniform Company Inc,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=workrite,DC=net
  object-class = top$msexchmdb$msexchpublicmdb
  The public mdb contains no home-mta (homeMta)

DN = CN=Microsoft System Attendant,CN=NT04,CN=Servers,CN=WORKRITE,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=Workrite Uniform Company Inc,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=workrite,DC=net
  object-class = top$exchangeadminservice
  The system attendant contains no home-mdb (homeMdb)
  The system attendant contains no home-mta (homeMta)

  object-class = top$msexchmdb$msexchprivatemdb
  The private mdb does not have a corresponding gateway object in the Active Directory

Hi,

Have you setup an Active Directory Connector, plus mailbox connection agreements to replicate information between Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2003?

Was a Config_CA created on your ADC server during the installation of Exchange 2003?
Is the Config_CA pointing to a GC.

Has the SRS service started on the Exchange 2003 server?

Did you install the Exchange 2003 server in the same site as the Exchange 5.5 server?

If the answer to the above is no then please read the following:

http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Overview-Active-Directory-Connector.html

If the answer to the above is yes then do the following:

Rerun the recipient update service. Force an update, wait awhile then use LDP to query on to the mailboxes to see if they have Homemdb and Homemta attributes.

If not use ADModify.net to bulk add the correct attributes to the mailboxes.

Hi,
Thanks for the quick response.....
I have done what you specified above. However,the AdModify.net is stating with an error that the mailboxes already are set to the correct mta and mdb settings. I still receive the same 5 errors as I listed above when using the verification tool. Any other ideas?
Thanks!

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Are you still experiencing the same errors? It looks to me as if the RUS hadn't finished updating yesterday.

I mounted the mailbox store and this message went away.
I can now open the mailbox through outlook.
Thanks for your help!

One other question... I cannot send to anyone else except for the 2 test users within the mailbox store. I am unable to send to outside accounts such as AOL and receive undeliverable when I try to send from the old 5.5 accounts. Any ideas?
Thanks!
