I've installed the Exchange Management Console on my machine so I can manage exchange accounts. It has always worked. But today, when I try and open it up, it has a message regarding our AD server and me not having the correct supplied credentials. A jpg pic is attached of the error. My account has admin on the domain if that helps.

    It looks to be you are member of read only exchange administrator.
    Add your accoun to the member of Exchange domain & exchange enterprise group.
    Also make your self member of domain & enterprise admin group in AD.

    I would reboot your PC and log in to Active Directory with fresh credentials.

    I can open up AD with the snap-in on my desktop no problem.

    I am a admin for everything on our domain... wouldn't this make me an exchange administrator as well? It was fine up until a few days ago. I'll put myself in those groups for now to see if something changes.

    How am I supposed to log into AD with "fresh credentials" with the snapin on my desktop... I always just click on it and it opens AD up for me.
