Exchange Management service is not running as LocalSystem
Topic Last Modified: 2005-11-18
The Microsoft® Exchange Server Analyzer Tool queries the Win32_Service Microsoft Windows® Management Instrumentation (WMI) class to determine the value of the StartName property for the Microsoft Exchange Management (MSExchangeMGMT) service. If the Exchange Server Analyzer finds that the Exchange Management service is running under any account other than the LocalSystem (SYSTEM) account, the Exchange Server Analyzer displays an error.
This error indicates that the Exchange Management service is not running in a supported configuration. If you run the Exchange Management service under any other account, you will cause permission and access errors.
To resolve this error, you must configure the Exchange Management service to start under the LocalSystem (SYSTEM) account.To configure the Exchange Management service account
