HELP!!! Trying to finalize an Exchange 2007 Server in my Exchange 2003 environment
Posted on 2010-11-30
Hi, I am trying to finalize an Exchange Server 2007 setup in my Exchange 2003 environment.
I have done all the preinstallation steps, expanding the schema, etc.
Forest/Domain Level: Server 2003
DCs: Server 2003 x32 / Server 2003 R2 x32 / Server R2 x64 / Server 2008 R2
Exchange 2003 Server: Windows 2003 x32 Standard w/ latest SP
Exchange 2007 Server: Windows 2003 R2 x64 Standard w/ latest SP
I have the Exchange 2007 server up and running. However, I performed the Microsoft Exchange Best Practices Analyzer.
When I perform "Permission Check" & "Baseline", both Exchange 2003 server & Exchange 2007 server pass.
When I perform "Connectivity Test", I receive 3 Critical Issues.
Exchange server: Registry cannot be accessed
(Cannot connect to the registry on server Exchange2003. This could be the result of a network or permissions problem. Error: The network path was not found.)
Exchange server: Performance data cannot be accessed
(Cannot collect performance monitor data from server Exchange2003. This could be the result of a network or permissions problem.)
Exchange server: WMI cannot be accessed
(Cannot connect to the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) repository on server Exchange2003. This could be the result of a network or permissions problem.)
Now when I run the Best Practice Analyzer on the Exchange2003 server, I receive the same exact errors, except it is with the Exchange2007 in the error messages instead of the Exchange2003.
Any ideas or suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
