Unable to connect the Exchange 2010 SP1 via Managment Tools

Hey guys,

We recently upgraded our exchange server from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2010 SP1. After the upgrade, the management tools stopped working from our Windows 7 Pro workstations. Below is the error we receive when trying to connect:

"Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message: Exchange Management Console cannot connect to this Server because the version are incompatible, the current server version is: '14.1.218.15'. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic."

However, the management shell work fine. Its only the console that we are having issues with. I have done tons of research and have yet to find a solution. I have installed the management tools and then installed all of the updates for Windows 7 and still no luck.

Can someone provide some insight?

Thanks!

You have to apply the SP1 update to the management tools workstation.

Take the service pack source files to the workstation and run
Setup.com /mode:upgrade

That should upgrade the management tools on there
