Exchange 2007 Management Tools not Refreshing

I have tried deleting the temporary files and have uninstalled the management tools and reinstalled with the latest release.

If I remote into the Exchange 2007 server, and open the management tool and click on Help > About > it says that it is version 08.03.0245.001. If I click on my client and look it says the same release 08.03.0245.001.

The Exchange Server is sitting across a VPN connection.

It seems that anything I create while RDP into the Microsoft Exchange Server is not updating in the Microsoft Management Console on my Windows 7 64 bit laptop.

I have checked firewall settings and all traffic is open to the Microsoft Exchange Server.

Can someone please provide a recommendation on how to resolve this issue?

I had Exchange 2007 SP1 and the corresponding management tool SP1 running on Windows 7 X64 bit for 2 years straight with no problems. I have only recently encountered this problem by upgrading the Exchange Server to SP3, and moving the Exchange Server to a VM connected over VPN tunnel.

This article is dated 2009, so I'm guessing that it's pertaining to Exchange SP1 and not SP3.

If you look on Microsoft's Website..to download Exchange 2007 SP3 it says "Windows 7" first OS listed.

Ok. I had another Administrator log in, and when that individual creates a managed folder mailbox policy it shows up and shows up on my local client, but if I RDP into the Exchange Server and view the Managed Folder mailbox policies, I am not seeing it. So I'm thinking maybe permissions issue? or corrupted profile?

Okay, if I run "Get-ManagedFolder" in the Exchange shell with same login, I see the folders while RDP, but if I look at Managed Default Folders the added Folder is not there. If I hit refresh nothing. However, if I look on a Exchange Management Console Windows 7 client, I am seeing the folder in the GUI and in the shell. I'm not getting why the EMC GUI is not updating when RDP into the Windows Server. I see "Refreshing: completed" when I hit refresh.

I would suggest you start with a new Windows profile on the server. Rename the existing profiel directory and then login again so you get a fresh one.

Simon,

I logged in with a local administrator account, and then deleted my profile. I then logged in again, and let it build a new profile and it's still exhibiting the same behavior. It's very strange.

I have nothing else to suggest. I don't do Exchange admin from a workstation, never have done.
