Open up the services screen in the management console, sort by "log on as" and check for any that are using the accounts you have changed. Whast happens if you change them back?

A Reboot Fixed It, I tried restarting the Exchange Services but to no avail. I also tried run as... on the Exchange Management Console and that did not work either. I remotely Rebooted and All is well again. I Love new Products and there newly discovered quirks.

Hi

I have the very same problem but the Log on as a/c is "Local System" which I have not changed.

I simply added a user and it failed to create a mailbox. Then this error occurred when I tried to access the Mailbox tab of the Exchange Console.

NB I am running a SBS 2003 domain with a W2K8 Exchange Server 2007 machine.

Kind Regards

David

The "solution" does not solve my issue.

When I open Exchange Management Console it cannot longer connect to Activer Directory showing the related error, however I can connect with well know credentials using the Best Practices Analyzer.
I have no other errors in the database and yesterday everything was fine. I did not change any account credentials.

Any other solution?
I am sure there is a way to change the "deafult" account credentials that Exchange Management Console uses to connect to AD, but I cannot find where.
Please advice!
