Exmerge fails using any account because of permission problems
Posted on 2007-03-28
I have been trying to get Exmerge to work for months and had no success. I've tried suggestions given by others in here but it seems I'm walking circles around the issue. Here is the situation:
I'm trying to run Exmerge on Windows Small Business Server 2003. My user is in the Domain Admins, Domain Users, and Enterprise Admins group. The only delegations in System Manager are MYDOMAIN\Administrator (Exchange Full Administrator) and MYDOMAIN\SBS Mail Operator (Exchange View Only Administrator). Exmerge fails with the following message:
Error opening message store (MSEMS). Verify that the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service is running and that you have the correct permissions to log on. (0x8004011d)
I've also tried running exmerge as the Administrator account on the domain and same problem. I'm ready to start over with troubleshooting this. If someone can guide me through making this work with an administrator account, or even with a brand new user account, I'd be grateful.
