I'm having an issue with the old 5.5 Exchange service account in an Exchange 2000 & 2003 Native Mode Environment.
Posted on 2004-11-11
When I try to add a 2nd Exchange 2003 server to my Exchaneg Native Mode enivronment I an prompted by "Microsoft Exchange Messaging and Collaboration Services" to enter the password to the Existing 5.5 Service Account. I can not change the service account or Domain since that is grayed out but I can see the user name & password, just can't edit it. I can however enter a password which I do and it says the password needs to be valid (it is).
On one of my current Exchange 2003 servers I'm getting an Event in the Security Log that has Advapi trying to log on with the old Exchange 5.5 account but I can not find a service, or program that uses this account. I can't find anything that uses the old 5.5 account.
Please let me know if oyu need more information, thanks...
