Hi I have the following error:

"Microsoft Exchange System Attendant failed to add the local computer as a member of the DS group object 'cn=Exchange Domain Servers,cn=Users,dc=atomic,dc=local'. Please stop all the Microsoft Exchange services, add the local computer into the group manually and restart all the services."

I restarted the service but dont know what ot do as the "local computer" is the one and only domain controller and it has Exchange installed.

Yesterday I moved the server and client computers from a custom OU back to the default  SBS OU (MyBusiness|Computers | SBSServers) as I there have been some client disconnection issues and I thought I would try to put things back to original OU configeration.

What should I do next?

Please have a read of the following KB Article:

This is because you moved the server from one OU to another.

A reboot should fix it, but if not, try the suggestions in the article.
