Running Exchange calander update tool with Domain admin account failing

Hi,

I'm trying to run the Calander update tool on a DC with the Domain admin account and it's returning the error:

" Error: Searching for Exchange servers objects in AD failed. Make sure you have permissions to search AD. The server is not operational"

It's running Server 2003 SP2, does not have Exchange on that box.

All i've found out by going thru the logs is that it's thinking that the account i'm using isn't an admin account.

Any help would be great.

regards,

Russell

The steps mentioned in this link have helped me solve loads of DST cases for my clients - check if this helps you.

Also, to be on a safer side please run those tools on a separate XP box rather than DC.
