Problem in Exchange witness folder and domain controller

Dear All,

I want to configure my witness folder in my domain controller, now there is no local admin group in the server, I put the “Exchange Trusted Subsystem” in the administrators and server operator groups in the active directory, I’m getting an error now which says the exchange trusted subsystem is not in the local group.

What should I do?

Which version of exchange is this. Presumably a cluster of some kind however is it a 2010 DAG, 2007 (various types) or 2003 windows cluster? or am I missing the mark here?

exchange 2010 SP1 on windows 2008 R2 Sp1
Local admins group is effectively domain admins on a DC. Use a different server that isn't a DC or add the "Exchange Trusted Subsystem" group to domain admins...
