organization configuration you don't have sufficient permissions to view this data

Hello,
I have installed a fresh version of Ex 2010 on a non-DC server.  I stumbled several times but at the end, I got it all done.  When I opened, EMC, I found that I did not have the right to view (or manage) the bigger part of the organization.
The account I used was the same account used to install Ex itself.  I would also want to clarify that:
1 - I have NOT installed Outlook (or any other MAPI client) on the server.
2 - I have manually added the administrator to the users allowed to manage the organization and server in AD in the DC.
3 - EMS kept generating syntax error on the Add-RoleGroupMember command.

Why am I still having this ugly permission issue? Is there any hotfix for this?

Regards
Yahya

Looks like you have a mixed environment is that correct?

Sorry if I did not get your question straight but if you were asking about the existence of another older version of Exchange server that is still running, then the answer is no.
To be clear, this is a fresh network. Currently, there are only two machines, DC and Exchange!

OK, since you admit that you already had problems while installing it and this is a new fresh installation, i would strongly recommend to uninstall and reinstall your exchange 2010. Starting out like that is not what you want on the long run.
Another question is, what is the mode of your active directory domain controllers (2003-2008)?

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

AD is 2008 R2.
I have no problem removing and reinstalling Exchange. I, however, have a few concerns:
1 - Is there anything I woul have to do in the DC, as Exchange now resides in the AD?
2 - Are you talking about setup /uninstall or formatting the entire server and building it up again?
3 - If the answer to #2 above is no, is it expected that Exchange will fail again on any of the prerequisites during its re-installation?

Thanks

To answer your concerns
Uninstall or format is the same as long as you uninstall it properly.
The only pre requisits is to run the forestprep and domainprep on your active directory.
Note: The user who will run these commands must be a member of the enterprise admins group

I have not run forestprep or domainprep any where during or prior to the previous installation. I have, however, run setup /ps, followed by a preparation for the AD and the domain, successively.
Kindly advise about these two commands you listed above.

Setup /ps and setup/PrepareAd should do the trick.
Just noticed that you added users to manage the org on your DC. Would you please repeat those steps using active directory users and computers on your exchange box?

oh, you mean without formatting?
What is the name of the tool? Is it dsa.msc?

Do not fogrt to run the two commands again. It will not hurt anything.

There is no such a utility as dsa.msc on the Exchange server!

isaman07Commented:
What?

Yba02Author Commented:
Dsa.msc on Exchange server returns an error of unrecognized command.

It just looks like you have active directory problems.
Is your exchange server a member og the domain (which i think it is)?
What are the dns settings on your exchange server?
You are logging as who on the exchange server?

Yes for both questions, but thanks for your time and effort. I am rebuilding the whole thing. Too much time spent on repair, to no avail.
