Admin Group: First Administrative Group
Posted on 2014-10-03
I have a server that I migrated from SBS 2003 and we did not demote the server correctly. The old server is no longer on site. Upon running the Exchange Best Practices Analyzer, we receive the following:
Admin Group: first administrative group
Routing Group: first routing group
Error Cannot connect to port 25 of the routing group master Routing Group: first routing group
Server ##### is a routing group master but a connection to port 25 cannot be established from the workstation where this tool is running. arrow Tell me more about this issue and how to resolve it.
Error Cannot connect to port 691 of the routing group master Routing Group: first routing group
Server #### is a routing group master but a connection to port 691 cannot be established from the workstation where this tool is running. arrow Tell me more about this issue and how to resolve it.
Error Exchange server cannot be contacted Server: ####
Exchange server #### is down or unreachable. This could be the result of a network or permissions problem. Error: The network path was not found
So far, I have removed all traces of the previous server from the DNS, Active Directory Sites and Services, Active Directory User and Computers. The Server BPA is no longer giving us errors about the previous server. After doing some research, I have determined that problem lies in the configuration under ADSI. Tunneling down to Configuration > Services > Microsoft Exchange > Administrative Groups, there are two groups. One, Exchange Administrative Group, and the second, first administrative groups. The second option has the config for the old server. Did some research and from what I read, I should not delete the first administrative group. If I can't delete the problem config, what are my options?
