Hi Experts,

I'm in a transition from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007.

I have move all the Mailboxes and replicated public storage to the new server and am trying to access Exchange 2003 to continue to remoive what was the first Exchange 2003 server in the organisation.

When I try to run the System Manager I get a message saying  MMC has detected an error in the snap-in and cannot continue.

I'm running MMC3.0 which seems to be a factor but also running 2003 SP2 and Exchange 2003 SP1

Any help greatfully received...

Did you try to reinstall the management pack again, or install it on a client machine?

* On your Exchange 2003 server you could try to reinstall the "Exchange System Management Tools" only and check whether you can access the ESM.

Good Luck (^_^)

Hi ehabsalem and Rudram,
Thanks foir the sugestion.
It does not seem possible to install just the tools as the setup sees I already have Exchange installed.
I'll try and get a client up to spec to install the tools there.
More as it happens!
