Exmerge not working after Exchange upgrade to 2003

Hi All,

Recently upgraded our current Exchange 2000 environment to Exchange 2003 (in-place upgrade).  Everything has been working flawless for a few months.  The only problem I cannot figure out is why I cannot do an Exmerge anymore.  I have verified the permission to the stores and they are 100% the same they used to be prior to the upgrade and I am using the same account (root domain administrator account) that I have always used.  Here is a paste of the Exmerge log file with the error.  Can anyone please help me fix this?

Thanks.

Exmerge has very specific permission requirements for exchange 2003. Follow the instructions here:

Here is the most important line from the KB that I gave you the link to:

"Note Do not use the built-in administrator account, or any member of any group that is explicitly denied. For example, do not use the Domain Admins or the Enterprise Admins groups."
