Exchange 2010 EMC console shows no server roles

My Exchange 2010 EMC shows no server roles.  It is the only the only exchange server we have and we migrated from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.  We removed the exchange 2003 server from service.  Now we realized that the 2010 EMC console shows the roles under server congiguration for mailbox, hub transport, and client access don't exist.  The server works fine, and mail is coming in and out of the facility so it seems that it is a case that a pointer needs to be redirected.  But where and how is what I need to know.  I assume I could do the from the Management shell or ADSI, I just need to know either the commands or the locatin and how to redirect.

More than likely this is due to your account not having the appropriate roles assigned. Exchange 2010 uses an RBAC system for determining what you can view in the EMC and what you can do in EMS. If you add your account to the Organization Management security group in AD (Or the server management group) you should be able to see those entries in EMC after logging out and back in.

Using Active Directory Users and computers user Exchange Security Groups add the user to tw Organisation Administration group.

Then restart the EMC and all should be fine

The curse of the end user strikes again      

You’ve updated all your end user’s email signatures. Hooray! But guess what? They’re playing around with the HTML, adding stupid taglines and ruining the imagery. Find out how you can save your signatures from end users today.

No errors or anything?

Could you try simply restarting now the 2003 server is gone?

I did the restart and it actually seemed to bring eveything up.  Must have been just a temporary thing.
