Hi Experts,

I have two exchange servers, one is on the parent domain. The other is on the child domain. I uninstalled then reinstalled the Exchange Server on child domain. The exchange server on the child domain now generating the error message below in the event viewer every 5 mins. The exchange servers are able to send and receive email without any problems.

4/25/2005      8:22:01 PM      MSExchangeAL      Error      LDAP Operations       8270      N/A      MX1PH      "LDAP returned the error [32] Insufficient Rights when importing the transaction
dn: CN=Recipient Update Service (PH),CN=Recipient Update Services,CN=Address Lists Container,CN=XPERTALK,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=xpertalk,DC=com
changetype: Modify

I have checked the domain controllers and i dont see any error. I have also checked the exchange server on the parent domain and it is also clean. I have setup a test lab and have replicated the problem on the lab. On the lab i was able to resolve this by uninstalling exchange and demoting the domain controller for the child domain. After that I promotted it back to DC for the child domain and reinstalled exchange. I dont want to do this for our live network.

Please help.

The problem seems to be stemming from the old Exchange server entries conflicting with the new Exchange server entried in AD.  

Is a step in the right direction.  You may need to manually remove the Exchange server entries in AD (ADSI Edit ) and reinstall exchange.

Hi eatmeinadanish,

I tried the link above, and the error still pops up after reinstalling exchange. Have looked at other microsoft papers event ID 8270 , but almost all point to error 34.

Out of frustration we have just reinstalled the OS and Exchange from scratch. It is a crude solution but  everything is OK now.
