I'm trying to add a second site to my Exchange organization, and I'm having
a heck of a time. Here's the background:
NT Domains: SOUTH and NORTH
Exchange Organization: COMPANYMAIL
Exchange Sites: SOUTHMAIL and NORTHMAIL
Exchange Servers: SOUTHMAILNT and NORTHMAILNT
My NT Account: SOUTH/RShipp
Exchange Service Account: SOUTH/EXSERVICE
OK...SOUTHMAILNT is up and running, no problem. I go to our other office
to put in NORTHMAILNT and get the two sites talking. The server installs
fine (after I got the trust from NORTH to SOUTH established correctly) and
I use SOUTH/EXSERVICE as the service account for the new site, NORTHMAIL.
So, my server's up and running. When I log onto NORTH as Administrator, I
can open Exchange Administrator no problem and work with NORTHMAILNT. When
I log onto SOUTH as RShipp, I get the following message upon trying to get
Administrator to hit NORTHMAILNT:
"A connection could not be made to the Microsoft Exchange Server computer
You do not have the permissions required to complete the operation.
Microsoft Exchange Directory ID no: DS_E_INSUFFICIENT_ACCESS_RIGHTS"
I guess I should mention that SOUTH/RShipp is a member of global group
SOUTH/EXGLOBAL which is itself a member of local group NORTH/EXLOCAL, which
has been granted Permissions Admin access to all appropriate parts of the
Exchange "tree". Anyway, SOUTH/RShipp can fully administer the NORTH
domain, but I can't seem to get SOUTH accounts to be able to hit the
Any thoughts? I'm sure it's an NT problem, but I can't seem to track it
down, and I can't get the Site Connector working until this is solved...how
do you get one account in a multi-site, multi-domain (two-way trusts) to be
able to administer all those sites' servers?
