Nt4 and Exchange 5.5

By peters ·
The administrator password was used for the installation of Exchange 5.5 on a NT 4.0 box. The administrator pasword was changed. On logingin to the Exchange application, withing the configuration box, the permission tab, several options do not appear. This is still the case even after reinstating the password to the original.

All the tab setting are not there.

Any way around this.

regards

Peter Smith

I had a similar problem. A new SID is created when you change a profile. . If the exchange was set up with that profile, it is looking fo the info in the registry. I hope you have a current ERD /s for the NT SERVER because this is the only thingthat saved us. We deleted GSNW. It also deleted the GSNW profile, which was used to set up MSE.

Create a new service account and change the exchange services in Control Panel. This should set the rights and permissions to what is needed for exchange. Give that a try.

This demonstrates why you should never use the administrator account to install/setup Exchange - ALWAYS use the Site Services account. You'll need to as suggested in #2 - configure a site services account and then configure the account and password in each of the Exchange services (Control Panel / Services).
