On Windows Server 2008 R2 running Exchange 2010 I can only view ADSI entries using the ADSI tool.
I dont have a security tab shown and I can't edit anything.

    If I remember correctly, you'll need to be a member of Enterprise Administrators to use ADSIEdit.

    I've been using domain admin account Administrator that is part of the enterprise Admins bu that is not giving me access.
    On the 2003 domain controller I can run an older version of the ADSI tool and see the security tab.But from the 2003 domain contorller I can;t get to the 2008 R2 setting I need for my Exchange 2010

    Are you using the version of ADSIEdit that comes with Windows 2008 Server? If not, you can install it by opening a command prompt and entering ServerManagerCmd -i RSAT-ADDC

    Accepted Solution

    I am using the Windows 2008 R2 ADSIEdit that comes with windows.

    I decided to try the identical second server and it worked, so I connected from the second server to the first and that worked.

    I went back to the original server and removed the computer from the ADSIEdit and readded it and it worked.
