Grant AD Schema rights

Hi Guys,

Hoping this is a simple one for an expert out there. I am attempting to install a new POP3 connector into SBS 2003 running exchange 2003. (Please, I'm not look for advice on the whole "why are you using a pop3 connector, you should use SMTP argument")

The install is bombing out because I don't have rights to modify the schema. I am logged in as the domain admin but I'm sure I need to grant schema update rights to the domain admin account. However I can't remember how!

Can anyone advise on how to go about this so I have access to install a new POP3 connector.

Many thanks

What was wrong with my answer?

Hi Rajith,

To be honest when I checked back the small amount of extra detail added by Rancy just made the answer click in my head. It was simply the way he worded it, specifically the mention of navigating to the 'member of' tab that made it click in my head.

You are right that there is nothing wrong with your answer and perhaps I should have taken more time to share points between you both, it was not my intention to indicate that your answer was not helpful, just perhaps not as fully complete in terms of detailed steps. Is there a way I can add additional points for your answer?

I am not a high user of this site and am more one of those individuals that just pay for membership so I can get quick answers every now and then. However I am keen to play by the rules and thank people for their assistance as I understand it takes time out of peoples days to aid in resolving these things. If there is something I can do to redress the balance I would be happy to do it, just let me know.
