Hey,

Do you want ot delete, exchange adminisatrators group from AD...?

may i know the reason for deleting the exchnage group?

If you are deleting the exchange group with out delegating the correct access to other group or user.. you will find issue on opening the Exchange system manager console...

If you have deleted the account and need to get back the groups.. for that you can run forest prep in your domain to have the exchange service group back..

Thanks,
Prem

I'm asking that question because my SA service stay in starting state when I reboot my Exchange 2003 and I realize this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910413 is applied to me:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When the System Attendant service starts, it searches for the following groups in only the default Users container:

Exchange Enterprise Servers
Exchange Services
Exchange Domain Servers

If these groups are not in the default Users container, the System Attendant service determines that the groups do not exist. Therefore, if these groups are not in the Users container when you start the System Attendant service, the service does not start.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The only grp in my case which is not in Users container is Exchange Services.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes, you can delete it. The group is there, if you have performed an upgrade from exchange 5.5 to above.

Make sure that your Exchange Domain Servers and Exchange
Enterprise Servers groups are in the Users container in your Active
Directory.

I has just fixed my "SA service keep in starting state after reboot" problem by moving Exchange Services group in Users container so if I delete that group could I get the same prob again?

The Exchange Services group is created during the installation of Active Directory Connector (ADC).

If you no longer have an Exchange 5.5 environment and don't use the ADC, then set your Exchange Org to Native and delete the Exchange Services group. Otherwise just leave it in the users container and forget about it.
