I just added in new larger exchange server recently. This is being done to add additional space for the message stores. All users will be migrated to this server once I'm completed.
I didn't install this server but after it was brought online I started to see 8513 errors in the event log with the 0x80044501. I found this MS article:
I also found several other people with similar issues on here, but with a small difference.
I followed the MS article 296151 and found that the key did not exist in the registry. So I went to the other server and exported the key then changed the individual parameters so that it was pointing to the new server then imported the reg file/key into the new server. I tried to restart the services and still received the 8513 error. I continued down the file to step 12 where I got stuck. Someone else on here was asking the same thing on where this is located. They were pointed to change the password on the account that controls the service. I went in and looked at the services and it was set to a local service not an account so there is no way to reset the password unless I specify an account.
Do I need a free/busy on each server or does this run on only one server?
Is there another way around this? If not then I will need to create an account but the big question is what rights should that account be given? I know by default domain admins are restricted in exchange for a few things on the service side...
