Error Accessing Exchange Administrative Groups

[This topic is intended to address a specific issue called out by the Exchange Server Analyzer Tool. You should apply it only to systems that have had the Exchange Server Analyzer Tool run against them and are experiencing that specific issue. The Exchange Server Analyzer Tool, available as a free download, remotely collects configuration data from each server in the topology and automatically analyzes the data. The resulting report details important configuration issues, potential problems, and nondefault product settings. By following these recommendations, you can achieve better performance, scalability, reliability, and uptime.

The Microsoft® Exchange Server Analyzer Tool has determined that an Exchange organization has been installed in the Active Directory® directory service forest and that you were successful in accessing the Exchange organization configuration information in Active Directory. However, no administrative groups that contain Exchange servers were found.

To correct this error:
  • Verify that you have the appropriate permissions in Active Directory to access the container for Exchange administrative groups.

  • If the workstation from which you are running the Exchange Server Analyzer belongs to a different Active Directory forest, or you are not logged on with a domain account, you may have to connect to an Active Directory domain controller for a forest that hosts Exchange servers.
